Kangana Ranaut says India’s name should be changed to Bharat
Bollywood actor Kangana Ranaut is very active on social media. Recently, the actress came out with a new controversial statement. Kangana took to her Koo account, Facebook page, and Instagram story calling India as the identity of slavery and that the name should be changed from India to Bharat.
Kangana Ranaut has posted a story about this on Instagram that read, “British gave us slave name India… which literally means east of Indus River. Really would you call a child small nose or second born or worse C section. What kind of a name is this? So rudimentary. Let me tell you meaning of Bharat. It’s made of three Sanskrit words BH (bhav), Ra (rag), ta (tal). Yes that’s who we were before we were enslaved, most culturally and aesthetically evolved civilisation. Every name has a vibration and British knew this they not only gave new names to places but even to people and important monuments. We must regain our lost glory, let’s start with the name Bharat.”
Kangana did not stop here. She posted the second story on her Koo account and wrote, “India can only rise if it’s rooted in its ancient spirituality and wisdom, that is the soul of our great civilisation. World will look up to us and we will emerge as a world leader if we go higher in urban growth but not be cheap copy of western world and remain deeply rooted in Vedas, Geeta and Yoga, can we please change this slave name India back to Bharat.”
Social media users commented a lot on this. Some people supported the actress, while others did not agree.
Recently, Kangana had shared a post on her Instagram account in which she is seen reading the history book and captioned, “History of India, so heart wrenching, conflicting and brutal…..You are a fool if you take a side but a bigger fool if you don’t take any ❤️”
