Terrorizing people with their activities, vandalizing public property, and even threatening Bollywood actors, Karni Sena goons did everything to halt the release of Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s magnum opus ‘Padmaavat‘. And when everyone thought that it will end soon because forty representatives of Karni Sena were already shown the movie in a special screening, it became more outrageous. A few members of the group ended up pelting stones and sticks on a school bus in Gurugram and left innocent children and staff threatened.
All this just because they “assumed” that there are objectional scenes between Deepika Padukone (Rani Padmavati) and Ranveer Singh ( Allauddin Khilji) in the movie.
And now, Karni Sena supporter, Surajpal Amu, the same person who threatened to chop off Deepika’s nose ended up creating another controversy while giving an interview on NewsX channel. The BJP leader called the news anchor, Sanjana Chowhan “baby” thrice on National Television.
Baffled by Surajpal’s words, Sanjana Chowhan corrected him and said that he will not call her baby. She lost her cool and blasted the BJP leader. The news anchor also made a valid point that Surajpal Amu and other people like him are vandalizing public property and threatening people to restore the pride of a fictional character but do not have respect for women who are around them.
While Sanjana was shouting at him, he looked completely disinterested and was laughing at her. Sanjana even demanded an apology but he left the live session and even asked her to shut up.
Take a look at the video here:
Sanjana has filed a case with National Commission for Women (NCW) and NCW has summoned him. The news anchor also got support from netizens who condemned this and thrashed Surajpal on Twitter.
These sexist hoodlums talks about women’s pride & then this happens.. The fringe group stoops to new low, Karni Sena supporter Surajpal Ammu called our anchor @Sanjanachowhan ‘baby’ on National Television!#PadmaavatRow @NewsX @filmpadmaavat #Padmaavat https://t.co/Tbb0m7U36B

BJP leader Suraj Amu is supposedly fighting to protect a woman’s honour, but finds no wrong in calling an anchor ‘baby’- live. What is worse-he refuses to apolgise and threatens her instead. #IndiaVsFringe #KarniSenagoons #BJP #Padmaavat #NewsX https://t.co/I0RPgAixBJ

Horrified to see Karni Sena Leader Surajpal Amu calling @NewsX anchor Sanjana Chauhan ‘baby’ on National TV & asking her to ‘shut up’ when she told him to apologise !!
These are the men burning the country for the ‘honour’ of a fictitious queen.
Irony of #NewIndia #PadmaavatRow

The whole ‘Padmaavat’ controversy has given a lot of footage and importance to these goons. This is the reason why they are not ready to end the chaos they have created. These people have started enjoying the way people are getting threatened by their activities. The time has come when we need to boycott such groups. Giving no importance to these goons will surely discourage them from creating disharmony in our nation.
