Standup comedian Mallika Dua often remains in the news over her controversial statements. Now, once again, Dua is in the eye of a social media storm over her recent comments on Pulwama terror attack.
Mallika took to Facebook to share a video and said, “These people who are saying that ‘humare log shaheed ho gaye, aap apne life normally kaise jee rahe ho (our people have been martyred, how can you live your life normally)’… people are saying this to each other; not just to me, it’s all over social media. There is a group of people who are violently in protest of the fact that people are showing their lives the way they are.”
“Now my point is, every day there are people who die of hunger, bhukmari, berozgaari, depression… there are so many reasons why people die; not just in India, but all over the world. You keep going about your life like you do, right? Are those lives any less important? Or are we being insensitive? Do we not care because we are posting things on social media? What is this logic? Yeh kya nonsense chal rahi hai ki poora desh ro raha hai aur tum has rahi ho?” Dua is heard saying in the video on Facebook.
Mallika Dua slams nakli nationalists
Along with the video, Mallika wrote, “To all the nakli nationalists and keyboard patriots, you don’t get to decide who’s Indian and who’s not. Especially those of you hell bent on destroying the secular fabric of this country really need to shut your mouths before giving others unsolicited Gyaan on being Indian. Tum hum se zyaada hindustaani nahin aur hum tumse kam Hindustaani nahi. It’s very convenient to be a keyboard warrior when it’s someone else shedding blood on your behalf.”

As soon as she posted the video, Mallika received a lot of bashing on social media. Here’s how people reacted:
Idk how Mallika dua’s statements (insta stories) are going unnoticed. I had been a fan, not anymore. Her Insta is sickenning. System’s failure yet A TERRORIST attack. How can she make remarks like “umm but they didn’t die fighting”, OR “people die of poverty and hunger too”.

Among all outrage, @MallikaDua is giving long lectures. Nothing new, same posts all communists and left liberals are posting.
But trivializing a martyr to normal deaths in country, and saying its usual and daily stuff.😫

Mallika dua is such a Baddhua to herself… she must be in depression since 2014….

That’s the real mentality of the urban naxals like @MallikaDua and her molester father #VinodDua. They are the real #Baddua for country like India. These naxals are results of 800yrs of misrule and invasion. @akshaykumar sir did the right thing by sacking her from comedy show

On February 14, 2019, more than 40 CRPF jawans lost their lives in a terrorist attack which took place in Awantipora, Pulwama district of Jammu and Kashmir. A car carrying more than 350 kg of explosives rammed into a bus of the Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) personnel, causing a blast.
