Vote: ‘American’ founder of The Wire or ‘Canadian’ Akshay Kumar, who is more suitable to comment on nationalism?

Rohini Singh commented on Akshay Kumar's Canadian citizenship, but she herself works for a publication run by an American Citizen

On the occasion of Republic Day yesterday, film star Akshay Kumar posted a tweet, saying that although it’s our 70th Republic Day, our men have been fighting for the country since time unknown. He added that 21 Sikhs had fought against 10000 invaders 122 years ago. Then he informed that his upcoming movie Kesari is based on that incident.

Reacting to this tweet, a journalist from The Wire Rohini Singh tweeted that “a Canadian citizen” is peddling his film using the Republic Day of a nation that he does not belong to.

The tweet by Rohini attracted sharp reaction on Twitter. Although reportedly Akshay Kumar has taken Canadian citizen, his primary workplace remains India. The bankable superstar of Bollywood is among the highest taxpayers in the industry, and also involved in philanthropy, who has made several large donations.

Ironically, Rohini Singh herself works for a publication which is run by a citizen of USA, and she questioned Akshay Kumar for his citizenship. The founder editor The Wire is Siddharth Varadarajan, who is an American Citizen, as was confirmed when he visited Pakistan last year.

The citizenship of Mr Varadarajan had not prevented him from commenting on Indian matters, so why should it prevent Akshay Kumar from doing the same, asked many people.

So, who is more suitable to comment on Indian nationalism? Canadian citizen Akshay Kumar or American citizen Siddharth Varadarajan? Please cast your vote below.
