I am against all mob lynching, says Shabana Azmi
cancel

Mumbai: Veteran actress Shabana Azmi Monday said she has always raised her voice against hate crime and her outrage over mob lynching is not selective.

The 66-year-old actress took to Twitter to clarify her stance after she took part in the Not In My Name protest, an anti-lynching movement on June 28.

"... Im versus (against) all fundamentalism. In Not In My Name campaign I said its about all mob lynching including the DSP in Kashmir, the love jihad," wrote Azmi.

The "Neerja" actress responded to an open letter penned by a former senior journalist where he questioned her for remaining silent on other hate crimes in the name of the religion.

Azmi slammed the article with a tweet, "Every level charged here is untrue. Surprised such a senior journalist didnt check facts and has resorted to spreading canard. Afsos (its sad)."

The Not In My Name drive gained traction after Saba Dewan, a documentary filmmaker, took to Facebook to organise a protest at Jantar Mantar in Delhi.

It soon became big social media campaign with people turning up in huge numbers in other cities such as Bengaluru, Kolkata, Hyderabad and Thiruvananthapuram.

Apart from Azmi, actresses Konkona Sensharma and Kalki Koechlin also participated in the protest held at Carter Road in suburban Bandra.
