Sai Pallavi says ‘disturbing’ to see people justifying lynching in a clarification video

Sai Pallavi said being a medical graduate she felt no one had the right to take another person's life and it was disturbing to see people justifying lynching

Actor Sai Pallavi on Saturday issued a clarification amid the controversy over her comments on the exodus of Kashmiri Pandits and lynching which she, in the video, said was taken out of context while her intention was to denounce violence in every form. A complaint was filed against the actor in Hyderabad by Bajrang Dal leaders who said the actor made derogatory comments on gau rakshaks. The Virata Parvam actor also drew wrath on social media for belittling the tragedy of the Kashmiri Pandits by comparing it with lynching.

Reiterating her neutral stance, Sai Pallavi in her latest video said it was disturbing to see people justifying mob lynching. "I don't think any of us has the right to take another person's life. Being a medical graduate, I believe that all lives are equal and all lives are important. I hope the day does not come when a child is born and he or she is scared of his or her identity. I pray we are not heading towards that," the actor said. She felt alone and conflicted amid the controversy, she said.

Countering the accusation that she belittled the suffering of the Kashmiri Pandits by comparing it with lynching, Sai Pallavi said being the person that she is, she would never "belittle a tragedy like the genocide and the generations of people who are still affected by it".

"Having said that I could not come to terms with the incidents of mob lynching that took place during the Covid times," Sai Pallavi said.

"This is the first time that I am getting in touch with all to clarify something and I think this will be the first time that I will be thinking twice before I speak my heart because I am anxious that my words might be misinterpreted. So forgive me, if I take longer than usual to communicate my thoughts," the actor said opening her clarification.
