MUMBAI: Whether it is a political area ot the field of sports, Bollywood actress Sonam Kapoor Ahuja has never been the one to hold back her thoughts.
The ‘Ek Ladki ko Dekha Toh Aisa laga’ star has come under fire after courted a controversy by voicing her opinion on the Hindu and Islamic fundamentalists on her social media.
The actor was sharing a post that was originally written by Humans of Hindutva on their Facebook page.
Elaborating on the topic, Sonam has written,
The average Indian has more in common with the average Pakistani than he does with a Hindu fundamentalist who wants to bomb in the name of Ram and lynch minorities and rally in support of child rapists.
The average Pakistani has more in common with an average Indian than he does with an Islamic fundamentalist who wants to bomb others in the name of Allah and oppress women and put guns in the hands of children.
Ordinary citizens everywhere just want to have a normal life and go to work and raise their children well and save up for a decent home.
Hindu and Islamic fundamentalists both have loads in common. Their minds are poisoned by hate and they both lack empathy for the other side. They both want war and do not care for its consequences. The cost of this extraordinary hatred of fundamentalists in both countries is eventually going to be paid by the ordinary citizens of both countries and the soldiers who are always first in line of a fire they did not ignite.”
However, her comments were not well received by Twitterati and soon slammed the 33-year-old actor.
Some of the reactions:
Sonam kapoor just compared Hinduism with Islam. Just ask this dumb fcuk what was the religion of the terrorists who hijacked the plane in which neerja bhanot was the air hostess .

Dear Sonam Kapoor,
The average actress as yourself has more in common with every girl on tik tok who calls herself an actress.
But, we still tolerate you with all your hate towards the country and it's culture that gives you a celeb status!
You, yourself is a fundamentalist!
