Kangana reacts to people supporting CISF constable

Days after the newly-elected MP Kangana Ranaut was allegedly slapped by a Central Industrial Security Force (CISF) constable at Chandigarh airport, she has shared her thoughts on the incident, criticizing those who condone what happened. Posting on X on Saturday, the BJP leader and actor addressed those who defended the CISF constable after she ‘touched her body without permission.’

‘Don’t carry so much grudge, hate and jealousy’

Kangana tweeted, “Every rapist, murderer, or thief always has a strong emotional, physical, psychological, or financial reason to commit a crime. No crime ever happens without a reason, yet they are convicted and sentenced to jail. If you are aligned with the criminal’s strong emotional impulse to commit a crime, violating all laws of the land.”

She further wrote, “Remember, if you are ok with breaking into someone’s intimate zone, touching their bodies without permission, and assaulting them, then deep down you are ok with rape or murder as well, because that’s also just penetration or stabbing—what’s the big deal? You must look deeper into your psychological criminal tendencies. I suggest you take up yoga and meditation, or else life will become a bitter and burdensome experience. Don’t carry so much grudge, hate, and jealousy. Free yourself.”

What Exactly Happened

The slap incident occurred on June 6, when Kangana was about to board a flight to Delhi for a National Democratic Alliance (NDA) meeting. She was allegedly slapped by a CISF constable. An FIR has been lodged against the constable.

Hours after the incident, Kangana released a video on her official Instagram page, narrating the details and expressing concern over ‘rising terrorism and extremism in Punjab.’

In the video, Kangana said, “I am receiving many phone calls from the media and my well-wishers. Firstly, I am safe and perfectly fine. The incident took place at Chandigarh airport with the security staff. As I came out after the security check, a security staff member from another cabin came from the side, hit me on my face, and started abusing me.”

“When I asked her (CISF jawan) why she did this, she said she supported the farmers’ protest. I am safe, but my concern is about the terrorism and extremism rising in Punjab. How do we handle that?” she asked.

On the day of the incident, another video was widely shared, wherein the constable said her mother was among the farmers protesting against the now-repealed farm laws. She was heard saying in Hindi, “Kangana had given a statement that women farmers were sitting at the protest for ₹100 each. My mother was also sitting there when she gave this statement. I could not tolerate the insult to my mother.”
