A video of a young girl performing Tik Tok video with India’s national anthem running in the background is going viral in the social media platforms. Not sure whether the song was added by herself or by others but she is facing severe hatred from the users of the micro blogging social media site for disrespecting India’s national anthem as it can be heard running in the background of her video. Actress Kasthuri who is known for stating her opinions in Twitter, has said that a criminal case can be lodged against her under article 51a.
National Anthem of India, written by Rabindranath Tagore is being treated with utter most respect in our country. Respecting national anthem is considered as one of the main attributes of patriotism. In this particular video which is doing rounds in Internet, the girl can be seen showing middle finger to things which disappointed her so far about the Indian country. She shows middle finger when “Respect is earned” pops out in her video and goes on to show the same to “I will never respect a nation that treats their minorities like trash or its women, children and the poor like cattle.” And then “Mod’s maniac and the BJPee is cancer” pops out in her video and the tik toker shows middle fingers from her both hands. “If you can’t understand why I’m mad, you are a privileged Hindu” popped out next which she pointed with her middle finger. “Free speech is a thing, go cry” she said through her video.
