Sonam Kapoor Gets Trolled For Misquoting National Anthem. But Is She At Fault?

Little did Sonam Kapoor knew that her views on social media trolls will land her in trouble. Sonam Kapoor expressed her views for ‘Let’s Talk About Trolls’ campaign, which was published in Hindustan Times. However, few hours after the article was shared on twitter, it went viral for all the wrong reasons. Twitterati started trolling the actress not for her blog post but for not knowing India’s national anthem well.

The actress begins her column in HT, saying, “You might call me a ‘bimbo’, a ‘naachne wali’, but you know what, I’m a terribly self-assured woman. I have a strong sense of self and I don’t need you to tell me who I am.” She adds, “The trolls can be sexist and judgmental but I know I’m smart and capable of expressing an opinion. I’m a successful woman, a feminist, a humanist, a national award winner and I say this with a great sense of pride and satisfaction: I get to live a fairy tale life every single day. I walk the international stage, I’m an avid reader with a library full of books, I am a consumer of news, an engaged Indian and so very capable of having a discussion on any issue, with anyone. Just because I’m an actor, it doesn’t mean I can’t have an opinion.  I’ve spoken up often.”

However, without reading the whole article, people jumped to the conclusion and trolled her on one quote that was shared on social media. A picture of one quote from her blog was shared online. The quote read, “I love my country but for some of you — and you’re the bigots, not me — I become ‘anti-national’ only because I ask questions or choose to be critical. Listen to the national anthem…recall the line you heard as kids, ‘Hindu, Muslim, Sikh, Issai…”

The Neerja actress was reminded that the words ‘Hindu, Muslim and Sikh’ do not appear in the national song. While some took a case of the actress and trolled her badly, a Twitter user said in her support, “Actually, the second stanza of jana gana mana has the words “Hindu Bauddh Shikha Jain, Parasik Musolman Christaani”. #NationalAnthem.”

Reacting to the trolls, Sonam Kapoor took to twitter and wrote, “Thank you so much twitter for the amazing response to my article and also to the #trolls who proved my point by the way they responded .”
