Priyanka Chopra and the network ABC have apologised for an episode in her American TV series Quantico which has sparked a major backlash online, just few days ago with angry fans slamming the actor.
Due to a episode, where Priyanka Chopra, who plays Alex Parrish, is an anti-terrorist officer who introspect plots a nuclear attack in Manhattan by Indians to frame Pakistan for it, just days before an Indo-Pak summit is to be held. The episode has drawn intense criticism from Indian fans.
And as always, here India get divided into two different parts one where the people are few sensitive to nation and nationalism get upset from Priyanka and second supporters with the tag line of ‘freedom of expression’ and freedom for artists’
I’m first one who was a fan of Pc and her boldness, and intelligence but now that turned into dumbness. I’m too upset with her and we all should be it’s quite fair,
Like this suppose there is a family of six member and they all have their different perspective and mind-set they argue, sometimes disagree from each other and also get angry.
But still they live together in a home, because they are bind with a same blood line that is their strength.
Whenever someone attacked ‘any of them from outside or either any of them face a challenge, the whole of family get together and fight against that and they win.
But one day a member of family went outside due to work and after some time he get full coloured in that place’s or culture.
He thought he has become more modern and developed, he began to talk like those people and after sometime thinks like them too. And once when outsiders who all don’t know so much about the name, dignity and history of his family make a disgust rumour and defame his family. Mock his family at the confront of him what he did?
He also laughs with them, and take part with them while hurting his family.
Because he was doing work with those people and at that place. And he made excuse that he couldn’t know what they are doing and what he was doing?
Would you agree?
Now tell me? What will his family do and react? Beyond their expectations,
wouldn’t they hurt or show their sentiments through anger?
A renowned family when get defame outside by his own member how it feels?
Have you experienced?
No! But we’ve experienced many times nation is also like a family and we Indians are more sensitive, emotional and have sentiments than any other nation.
We’ve lost so much and today there is only thing that can make us bind together is ‘nationalism but our misfortune is when here Hindus or who all talk about nation or against these so called modern people get tagged as ‘devotee of our PM Narendra Modi’ or contractor of nation, intolerant and sometimes so far as Hindu terrorist.
We always get criticised, that’s fine. But it hurts when we oftentimes get defamed by our own people that’s also for a lie and wrong reason. We hear words from intellectuals and artists as India is a danger place, most intolerant nation. The biggest population ‘Hindus are terrorists and minority’s like Muslims, OBC and SC are in worst condition and in fear.
Then it hurts, now you think there is no Hindu nation in world, India is only nation with majority of Hindu population that also a democratic nation where people of all religion live. In fact Hindu upper cast get separated or displaced due to Muslims in our own nation. In Hindu majority nation we couldn’t able to make a temple of our lord because of Muslims and democratic way. What else you can expect?
I’ve heard a dialogue that Muslims often deliver ‘We are Muslims and we aren’t terrorist’ right?
Now here we Indians have to each time say and prove that India is best country and most safest county for all religion and world. Muslims, Christians are our friends they are living in very good condition than any other nation. And Hindus aren’t terrorist.
Even when Muslims invaded upon us, destructed our culture, history, temples, and knowledge spite of we are living today with them in this peaceful way how much more tolerance you people expect from us?
Go and live few days in UAE, Afghanistan, Iran, Iraq, Palestine, Mayanmar and any other nation. Then you will understand the value of India.
I’ve read that president of Iraq said, When they make Mosul free from ISIS and almost all Iraq,
“If today we are free from this most evil and dark night of terrorism so due to one thing that is the ‘nationalism where all people comes together and fight for their nation.
Nationalism is a feeling of pride, respect and love for their nation. And this bind all of people together in a single frame. This become nation strength at global level.
Then what’s wrong in nationalism?
People oftentimes criticise nationalism as form of oppression and differentiation but tell me any single thing of 21st century and dark age isn’t polluted?
We all are here living as in lower form of humanity we can’t expect things are very saintly and godly.
So at Priyanka my point is when these people say or do anything against India so they should have freedom of expression and freedom of speech, they are intellectuals.
But when we say something for defending out nation and against those people so we become intolerant, bullies and illiterate foolish. People began to die then they need protection from government. Why we can’t have freedom of speech?
This isn’t intolerance?
So today there are many intellectuals have been come together to defend a right of artist and freedom of expression,
Look at here;
Devesh Baheti, wrote, for defending Priyanka “It’s sad that an artist has to apologise for being an artist.”
Being an artist does not mean you have to drop down your identity of a nation. Art is very powerful medium to show reality to the world but if artists will use this for expending lie then sorry we’ll not support.

When Priyanka Chopra makes a mark for herself Internationally we claim her achievements as our own & then threaten to ban her films & make her apologise for a work of fiction that has been created by someone else. Can we please attempt to be larger than that?
“When Priyanka Chopra makes a mark for herself Internationally then she isn’t a naive who couldn’t understand while doing what she was doing in show? She is firstly an Indian why she just couldn’t take a back off or raise her voice against plot?
“We can and often we do attempt to be larger than this all. But why people like her who are now growing largely in India can’t do attempt be larger than pity, disgust and being naive? Why they just don’t read great history of our nation more old then 5,000 years or any other nation of world.
Then they’ll understand why we Hindus and Indians are reacting like this and why we are so conscious for the image of our nation on global level.
