Kangana Ranaut needs to read history, has no clue: Shashi Tharoor

New Delhi/IBNS: Congress leader Shashi Tharoor on Thursday said Kangana Ranaut needs to read up on history and "has no clue", after the actress said India's independence in 1947 was alms (bheek).

In an interview to NDTV, the Kerala MP said: "I think she needs to read the history a little bit. I don't think she has a clue, unfortunately, if she really thinks that Mahatma Gandhi was going out with a begging goal when he was a man of tremendous pride and distinction who told the British law is unjust I am breaking your law."

"Punish me as you wish...I'll take your punishment. Is that the act of a beggar," Tharoor said.

"I mean, it is ridiculous for her to even talk like that about the freedom movement involving begging from the British when in fact it was an act of tremendous courage, moral rectitude, and great fortitude in handling and the strength that these people needed to show. Imagine going defenseless and having those lathis rain down on you," he told the channel.

Ranaut, who is known for her controversial comments, has recently said India got its true freedom in 2014 while alms in 1947.

Speaking at an event of a news channel, Ranaut had said, "The British knew blood will flow but it should not be Hindustani blood. They knew it..."

"Of course it was not true independence but alms (in 1947). India got its true independence in 2014," she had added.
