Rapper Taran Kaur Dhillon, whom we all know best as Hard Kaur, was booked for sedition in June this year. She had reportedly said something nasty on social media about Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath and RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat. The UK-based tough babe is back in the news headlines with her challenge to Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Union Home Minister Amit Shah.
A video recently surfaced that has Hard Kaur alleging that the two men have ‘threatened’ her, her family and her friends. “You use people! You use armies and people for your personal agenda. Why (are) you doing all these girly things? Like sedition charge, ‘we’re gonna rape you… we’re gonna kill you…’ Come and fight like a man!” In the clip, she is seen to be backed by what seem to be members of the Khalistani group.
There have been a lot of anti-reactions to this. Many feel that Hard Kaur should be shunned by Bollywood, while others call her a ‘fake Punjabi’, saying that she has ‘completely lost it’. While we reserve comment, we must say that Ms Dhillon is asking for more trouble than we think she needs to deal with. Don’t you agree?
