Actor Kangana Ranaut picked up Canadian prime minister Justin Trudeau’s remarks on limits on free speech to say that people are not living in an ideal world and if people are beheaded for “petty crimes”, there is no need for law and order. The remarks were made in connection with the beheading of a teacher in France who showed his students cartoons on Prophet Mohammed. Speaking to mediapersons on Friday, Trudeau defended free speech, but added that it was “not without limits”. In response, Kangana Ranaut took to her Twitter handle to voice her opinion on the issue. Her tweets went on to read, “Dear Justin,we don’t live in an ideal world, people mustn’t but everyday they are breaking signal, doing drugs, molesting others, hurting sentiments. If every petty crime’s punishment is beheading each other then why we need a Prime Minister or any law n order?”
She asked Justin Trudeau to answer her response quoting her previous statement. She then went on to add, “Anybody makes cartoons on Ram, Krishan, Maa Durga or any God for that matter Allah, Christ, must be punished if they do it at work place or social media suspend them, if they disrespect openly send them to jail for 6 months, that’s all, people have a right to be atheist... cont. ”She concluded by putting out another strong worded statement which went on to read, I can choose not to believe in your God, that’s fine, it’s not a crime, I can express how I don’t agree with your religion, yes !! that’s freedom of expression, learn to live with my voice, you have learnt to slit my throat cause you have no answers to my questions, ask yourself". Anger erupted in the Middle East in response to Macron defending the right to publish the cartoons in France. Macron made the comments during a tribute last week to Samuel Paty, a teacher beheaded in the street for showing caricatures of the Prophet Mohammed in class in a course on freedom of expression.
