Vikrant Massey BREAKS Silence Over His ‘Distasteful’ Tweet on Ram-Sita: ‘No Intent to Hurt Hindus’

Actor Vikrant Massey said sorry for a tweet he posted 6 years ago that showed a cartoon of Hindu deities Lord Ram and Goddess Sita. The tweet, which resurfaced recently, made some people upset. Vikrant deleted the tweet and apologized, saying he didn’t mean to offend anyone.

“In context to one of my Tweets way back in 2018, I’d like to say a few words: It was never my intention to hurt, malign or disrespect the Hindu community. But as I reflect in hindsight about a Tweet made in jest, I also release (realise) the distasteful nature of it. The same could have been said without adding the cartoon which was published in a newspaper,” he said.

“I’d with utmost humility like to apologise to each and everyone who has been hurt As you all by now know, that I hold all faiths, beliefs and religions with the highest possible regard. We all grow up with time and reflect upon our mistakes. This was mine. Regards,” Vikrant added.

Back in 2018, Vikrant had shared the Lord Ram-Sita political cartoon in connection with the rape cases that were making headlines at the time. “I’m so glad I was kidnapped by Ravan and not by your bhakts!” Goddess Sita was seen telling Lord Ram in cartoon while she held a newspaper in her hand. “Half baked potatoes and half baked nationalists will only cause a pain in the gut. #KathuaCasr #Unnao #Shame,” he wrote in the now-deleted post.

Recently, Vikrant made the headlines when he revealed his brother converted into a Muslim at the age of 17. He added that his mother is a Sikhni and his father is a Church-going Christian. Speaking on a podcast, Vikrant said, “From a young age, I have seen a lot of arguments related to religion and spirituality. After seeing this, I went on my own quest, wondering what exactly is religion. It is man-made.”
