Actress Sai Pallavi clarified her comments on Saturday after the internet was divided by her comparison of the exodus of Kashmiri Pandits to cow vigilantism. She said that portions of the interview were taken out of context and that her objective was to convey that using violence in the name of any faith was a grave sin..
“After I watched the film The Kashmir Files, I had the opportunity to speak with the director. I was disturbed seeing the plight of people and the generations of people that are still affected by it. I would never belittle a tragedy like the genocide. Having said that, I can never come to terms with the mob lynching incident that happened during Covid times. I remember seeing that video and being shaken for days,” she said.
“All I wanted to convey was that violence in the name of any religion is a huge sin. Many people online justified the mob lynching incidents. I believe all lives are important. I hope a day doesn’t come when a child is born and he/she is afraid of his/her identity,” she added.
“I will be thinking twice before I speak my heart because I am anxious that my words may be misinterpreted,” Pallavi said.
“I felt alone and conflicted thinking what I did wrong. I felt like they [people who supported her] knew me for who I am,” she added.
She compared the genocide in Kashmir to lynchings for “cow smuggling” while promoting her movie, Virata Parvam.
Social media was divided over the opinion expressed on a YouTube channel. While some people praised her for her bravery in making the comments, others ridiculed her. She was accused of mocking the genocide in Kashmir by several other people as well.
