Violence can’t be justified in any context: Swara Bhaskar on Ramjas row

Speaking about the ongoing Ramjas row, Swara Bhaskar said, “You can give it any name like nationalism or anything but violence is absolutely wrong. The fact is that thrashing somebody due to a dispute or because somebody is a sloganeer is not right.”

“As a student of Jawaharlal Nehru University, I feel that violence can’t be justified in any context. You can give it any name like nationalism or anything but violence is absolutely wrong. The fact is that thrashing somebody due to a dispute or because somebody is a sloganeer is not right,” she said at the screening of Hawa Badlo.

“Any argument can be sorted out by talking. We can see these kind of incidents are happening often and as an actor, I think we are vulnerable. You can see what has happened to Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s set. Now this one, it is quite a disturbing situation,” the Tanu Weds Manu actress added.

Hawa Badlo is a short film which talks about the problems traffic police face due to air pollution. At the event, Vivek Oberoi announced to donate anti-pollution face masks for the traffic police officials.
