Taran Kaur Dhillon, more popularly known by her stage name Hard Kaur, appears to have fallen over the edge. From her posts on social media, it appears that the rap-singer is losing her touch with reality.
Since the 16th of June, she has been showering abuses on RSS Chief Mohan Bhagwat and the Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh Yogi Adityanath. She has called Yogi ‘OrangeRapeMan’ and accused Bhagwat of committing the 26/11 and the Pulwama Terror Attacks.
Kaur, who is known for her eccentricities, appears to have reached a point where hatred for individuals has led her to believe in deluded fantasies. The most obnoxious of her posts is the one where she can be seen spouting Pakistani propaganda. She accused Mohan Bhagwat of being the main man behind the Mumbai and Pulwama Terror Attacks, thereby, absolving Pakistan of all its guilt.
Kaur’s meltdown also reveals the sort of hatred against the Sangh Parivar and the Saffron garb that runs amok in the corridors of Bollywood. While most are sophisticated enough to hide their virulent hatred behind sweet words, not everyone is smart enough to pull off such tricks. And Hard Kaur certainly appears to be in the second camp.
Apart from Bhagwat and Yogi, Kaur has also spread malicious lies about the origin of the word Hindu and hurt a lot of Hindu sentiments. It appears to be straight out of the virulent anti-Hindu propaganda that is circulated in Islamist camps.
Her posts have turned into an abuse-fest where she is spitting expletives at anyone who speaks in favour of Bhagwat or Yogi. Understandably, she has been receiving abuses as well. It appears only a matter of time before she plays the victim card and claims that she is being viciously targeted by online Hindutva trolls. Perhaps, she will be provided with a platform by the mainstream media as well to further peddle her agenda.
It has become a time and tested trick for people in the lower rungs of Bollywood to try and gain some fame by spouting inanities against the BJP or the Sangh. However, Kaur appears to have taken it too far. With the changing mood in Bollywood, it appears unlikely that she will find sympathy anywhere apart from the loony bins of the Far-Left.
Should Kaur be successful in finding work in Bollywood after this episode, it will only cement the notion that the Mumbai movie industry thrives in a culture of obscenities. While Kaur may be at the twilight of her career already, Bollywood has shown that there’s always a new low they can stoop to.
