Fake Quote Claiming Kangana Ranaut Slammed Shabana Azmi Revived

The fake quote attributed to Kangana Ranaut is strikingly similar to replies on Shabana Azmi’s tweet about Durga Ashtami

Claim

"Kangana gives stunning reply to Shabana Azmi Shabana made insulting Tweet on Hindu Goddesses on Navratri "This Eid lets pray that no Aisha is married off at the age of 6, No Shah Bano is given Triple Talaq, No Meena Kumari has to undergo Halala, No Fatima becomes 4th wife, No Shehla has to wear the burqa, No Ishrat becomes terrorist and No Mumtaz has to give birth to 14 children." Kangana Ranaut"

Fact

BOOM found that the quote attributed to Kangana Ranaut is fake. Post the Pulwama terror attack in February 2019, Ranaut and Azmi had engaged in a war of words after the latter was accused of being an 'anti-national' by Ranaut. However, Ranaut did not take a dig at Islam later, as was claimed in the tweet . On September 29, 2017, Azmi had tweeted an image about Durga Ashtami and had faced flak for it. We had found similarities between Ranaut’s fake quote and several replies to Azmi’s tweet. BOOM had previously fact-checked the same fake quote in April 2018.
