Sai Pallavi says the genocide in Kashmir and the lynching for “smuggling cows” are both crimes. Internet is divided
Sai Pallavi is known for speaking with all her heart and that is one of the reasons why people love her. During promotions for her next film, Virata Parvam, she compared the Kashmir genocide to lynching for “smuggling cows”. This opinion has left social networks divided. While some of the population sides with Pallavi, others have pointed out that the two are not the same.
SAI PALLAVI COMPARES GENOCIDE IN CASHMERE AND LYNCHING
Sai Pallavi will next be seen in Virata Parvam, in which she will share screen space with Rana Daggubati. The film will be released in theaters on June 17.
In an interview with a YouTube channel, Sai Pallavi was asked about her political leanings. She said she is ideologically neutral and was brought up that way. She added that she doesn’t know if the left or right groups are right.
Speaking about her stance, the Paava Kadhaigal actress said, “I grew up in a neutral environment. I’ve heard of left and right. But I can’t tell who is right and who is wrong. Kashmiri Files, shows how Kashmiri Pandits were killed. Recently there was an incident of a person killed for transporting a cow because he was suspected of being a Muslim. After killing the person, the assailants raised “Jai Shri Ram” slogans. Where is the difference between what happened in Kashmir and what happened recently?”
Sai Pallavi also added that his family taught him to be a good person. “You have to protect the oppressed. Their stature is not important. If you are a good human being, you don’t think he is right.”
Here is the video:
“For me, violence is a bad form of communication. Mine is a neutral family where they only learned to be a good human being. The oppressed, however, must be protected. I don’t know who is right and who is wrong. If you’re a good human being, you don’t think one is right.

Best part in #SaiPallavi the statement that she agreed that they were
Will India accept tomorrow if someone starts smuggling your pets like dogs and cats out of your homes?
Why steal someone’s cow? It should be dealt with severe penalties.

I loved #SaiPallavi.
I never complained about her pimple-filled cheeks, ugly ass, and bad hairstyle.
But in the future, I will hate her. As she says, killing a cow smuggler and killing Kashmiri pundits are the same.
She could say that killing a terrorist and KP is the same thing.

My respects @Sai_Pallavi92. Violence is violence. Anyone who commits in any form, regardless of political affiliation.
We need such a good socially responsible actress.#SaiPallavi https://t.co/qDNRpWTIk6

I thought she was a smart, down-to-earth girl. Disappointed with #SaiPallaviabsurd comparisons. Stupidity, I suppose, comes naturally with fame. https://t.co/CCCveqePV7
