There were reports that Parineeti was removed as the face of Haryana’s “Beti Bachao Beti Padhao” campaign. The reason, it is widely believed, was her tweeting against the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA).
On june 17, the actress tweeted: “If this is what’s gonna happen every time a citizen expresses their view, forget #CAB, we should pass a bill and not call our country a democracy anymore! Beating up innocent human beings for speaking their mind? BARBARIC.”
The CAA, passed in the winter session of Parliament, seeks to grant Indian citizenship to the Hindu, Sikh, Buddhist, Parsi and Christian refugees from the neighbouring countries — Pakistan, Afghanistan, and Bangladesh.
