Actress Kangana Ranaut has claimed that she predicted the current protests in Punjab two years ago. Reacting to the recent attack on a police station by supporters of pro-Khalistan organization ‘Waris Punjab Day’, Kangana tweeted that “non-Khalistani Sikhs need to clarify their position and intentions”. She also offered to discuss the demand for Khalistan with the chief of the organization, Amrit Pal Singh.
Background: Protests in Punjab and Kangana Ranaut’s Controversies
The protests in Punjab are being led by supporters of the pro-Khalistan movement, who are demanding a separate state for Sikhs. The recent attack on the police station in Amritsar by armed supporters of the organization has led to widespread condemnation.
Kangana Ranaut, on the other hand, has been embroiled in numerous controversies over her statements on various issues. She has been critical of the ongoing farmers’ protests in India and has been accused of comparing the protesting farmers with “Khalistani terrorists”. Her car was also attacked in Kiratpur Sahib, Punjab, in 2021, allegedly by a group of people demanding an apology from her over her remarks against the farmers’ protest.
Kangana’s Claims and Offer for Discussion with Pro-Khalistan Leader
In her tweets, Kangana claimed that she had predicted the current protests in Punjab two years ago and had faced numerous cases and an arrest warrant as a result. She also called on non-Khalistani Sikhs to clarify their position and intentions.
Whatever is happening in Punjab I predicted two years ago,many cases were filed on me, arrest warrant was issued against me, my car was attacked in Punjab, lekin wahi hua na jo maine kaha tha,now is the time non- Khalistani Sikhs need to make there position and intension clear 👍

Kangana also offered to discuss the demand for Khalistan with Amrit Pal Singh, the chief of the pro-Khalistan organization ‘Waris Punjab Day’, who had recently staged a massive protest in front of Ajnala police station in Amritsar, leading to the release of his aide Lovepreet Toofan from jail. Kangana, however, placed a condition that she should not be attacked or shot during the discussion.
Conclusion: A Call for Clarity and Dialogue in Times of Tension
The situation in Punjab remains tense, with protests and counter-protests being held by various groups. Kangana Ranaut’s claims and offer for discussion with the pro-Khalistan leader Amrit Pal Singh have added a new dimension to the ongoing debate over the demand for Khalistan. However, in these times of tension, it is important for all parties to engage in dialogue and clarify their positions to avoid any further escalation of the situation.
