Gul Panag is one of the many celebrities who supported Kangana Ranaut in the recent slap gate case. The actress took to her social media to express support for the Queen actress after a CSIF officer allegedly slapped her at the Chandigarh airport. Gul Panag is also associated with the Aam Aadmi Party while Kangana Ranaut recently made her debut in politics and won her maiden Lok Sabha elections to become the Lok Sabha MP from Mandi.

On June 10, days after Kangana’s slapping incident, Gul Panag took to her X account (formerly Twitter) to express her support. The actress-turned-politician felt that violence of any kind against anyone should not be justified. She also wrote a note for anyone making fun of the incident.

Gul Panag wrote: “We cannot justify a person in uniform making a political statement in the line of duty – no matter how provocative. It’s a slippery slope, and what meme creators, comedians, artists and others don’t realize is that they could also one day be victims of violence.

He said: “A woman using physical violence against another woman, exploiting her position, is completely unjustifiable. Legal action should be taken in response to this. Kher added: “Expressing anger is understandable, but resorting to such actions is regrettable and unacceptable.” The actor concluded by saying, “Whatever Kangana’s status as an MP or an actress, she is a woman first and foremost. Any form of violence against a woman or any other person is unjust.
