May 12, 2019
Actress Shabana Azmi has slammed fake news reports for creating a false quote claiming she would leave India "if Narendra Modi becomes Prime Minister again." Shabana, who has often been harassed on Twitter for holding views against the BJP and other right wing parties, called the news "pure fabrication."
On Twitter, she said,
I've never said this and I have no intentions of leaving the country. This is where I was born and this is where I'll die. I have nothing but contempt for The Fake News Brigade. - Shabana Azmi, Actor
In a series of tweets, Shabana also said that the "fake news brigade is pretty pathetic" and that they sell lies so people think them to be the truth. "The Fake News Brigade is pretty pathetic. Their overdrive exposes their fear at losing out. Issues pe baat kar nahi sakte tto chalo jhoot itni baar bolo ke usey log sach maan lein is their motto.But they are falling flat on their faces because there are enough brave voices exposing them."
