Recently, PM Modi urged every citizen of the country to switch off lights and light the lamp of unity for nine minutes on 5 April at 9 pm.
Anurag Kashyap appeared in no mood to support Modi’s initiative to come together to fight against COVID-19. Anurag took to his Twitter to share a post regarding the Prakash Parv that was celebrated across India on April 5.
He wrote, “Was a question. Where can I get a candle and lamp? At the drugstore or at the ration or vegetable shop? Does this also come in the same way? If not available, can I burn this world? I have a match. #JustAsking”
Meanwhile, Rangoli Chandel, sister of Kangana Ranaut, who is known for bashing all the Bollywood biggies, slammed Anurag Kashyap over his controversial tweet. She attacked him for making fun of Modi’s appeal of lighting Diyas. She asked him to burn himself instead of the world.
She took to her Twitter to give him a befitting reply. She wrote, “Duniya toh nahin jala sakte magar khud ko jala sakte ho woh allowed hai, dusaron ko duniya se aur apni zindagi se bahut payaar hai sir unko jeene do, aap he duniya se pareshaan ho sirf aap kalti ho please”
Another user commented, “Brother, the camera from which you are spreading this negativity, its camera flash light can also be used. Said so @PMOIndia @narendramodi Yes. But you may not have heard that.”
Anurag Kashyap was trolled by netizens on social media for his irresponsible tweet. Here are some reactions by users.
April 5, 2020, will always be remembered for the solidarity of India. On this day, The nation embraced PM Modi’s call to convey the message that the country is united in its fight against Coronavirus pandemic.
Everybody lit a lamp or candle or at least flashed their phone beyond religion, caste, creed, and political ideologies without breaking the coronavirus lockdown rules. Every torch and lamp that everyone lit on April 5 proves that India is one in the time of crisis.
This unity shows that the biggest of the nations may have succumbed to the COVID-19 battle but India will ultimately win this battle.
