Open letter against ‘selective outrage and false narratives’

Three days after 49 eminent personalities wrote to Prime Minister Narendra Modi, expressing concern over alleged incidents of lynching, 62 others have hit back, accusing them of “selective outrage, false narratives and a clear political bias” in an open letter.

The authors of this new letter include CBFC chief Prasoon Joshi, Bollywood actor Kangana Ranaut, filmmakers Madhur Bhandarkar and Vivek Agnihotri, and classical dancer and Rajya Sabha member Sonal Mansingh.

The letter said that “this document of selective outrage comes across as an attempt to foist a FALSE NARRATIVE… to negatively portray Prime Minister Modi’s untiring efforts. The signatories of the ‘open letter’ have, in the past, kept silent when tribals and the marginalised have become victims of Naxal terror, they have kept silent when separatists have issued dictates to burn schools in Kashmir, they have kept silent when the demand for dismembering India were made…”
