What’s the whole rage about?
There are different issues that are causing a stir in our country for quite some time. This included cases such as lynching in the name of saving cows as well as the case of Rajput honor due to the depictions in the controversial movie, Padmavat. Initially, the session focused on the aspects of the mind and body. They discussed spirituality and how people how the people fail to understand the importance of these essential things.

In her subsequent interview with the mid-day she said that she stands by everything she spoke about.” “Spirituality is the need of the hour. She also stressed on discussing about the relevant issues rather than talking about unnecessary things. People are facing so many problems in this country. They are malnourished and are not having access to education. They even are facing gender bias and corruption; their basic needs are not getting complete. She said that the main problem is that the so-called liberals are moderating the world view which is creating chaos in the entire world..” She added while defending what she said in the earlier interview.

Lynching has left Kangna heart-broken
Even though a section of the interview with Sadhguru shows that she feels heartbroken at the lynching. In addition to this she can also be heard saying that the people who debate over these violent acts “have not seen India” and that they live in the cities while talking about these events.
When she was asked whether she is trying to “normalise cow vigilantism”, her response was,” We didn’t normalise lynching at any point. If a certain religion worships cows, you can’t slaughter cows. I am vegan and I can’t see raw meat. I can’t be shamed for my choices. If it’s a sentimental thing, why instigate people?”
Kangna Ranaut attacks the self proclaimed liberals
Ealier she said that, “when a war breaks, liberals are the first one to say… to demotivating an Army man who is protecting the borders for you. A rape takes place in Kashmir and they say ‘Hinduism raped our daughter’. To pointing fingers at each other when the country is so vulnerable and trying to break [into] a civil war. Is that what liberals do?”
Sadhguru responded to this by saying, “In this country which is pastoral country, cow and cattle are the wealth of this nation… so if somebody stole a cow, they cut you and beat you up… Let me say this clearly, I have a connection with rural life. In my life, I have witnessed three lynchings”.
This was in response to a scene depicted in the movie, Manikarnika where the crew decided to change a scene by replacing a calf with a lamb in response to the recent lynching in order to please the “liberals”.
Kangna Ranaut claims herself as a liberal
She further added that one should not hurt the sentiments of the other people by hiding behind the façade of a “liberal”. “In a diverse nation like ours, one has to be considerate of people’s emotions. Why is it hard for the so-called liberals to wrap their head around this? Being inconsiderate is not being liberal.” She says on asking her what she thinks about being labelled as an anti-liberal. “I am the most liberal person I know, but self-proclaimed liberals can’t rattle me by trying to seek attention. Their agenda is to go against the Government, protest against the national anthem, but how are they standing up for the country? Our situation needs to be rectified by a strong set of ideals that can bring us out of the pit.” The actress added.
Kangana Ranaut was also criticized for “pandering to majoritarian politics” when she said, “The earlier Government played on dividing basis majority and minority because the latter sticks together and votes flock in. The truth is majorities run the risk of being wiped out by the minority-friendly governments. Governments can’t be partial to either side. Our religions are beautiful, but we must subscribe to nationalism to bind us together. These self-proclaimed liberals are b***ardising nationalist sentiment.” Lynching controversy has posed question on all.
