Anumpam Kher Saturday took a dig at Naseeruddin Shah, his co-star of many films, over his comments on mob violence. Kher wondered how much more freedom Shah expected to have in a country where one could even "abuse" the army and "pelt stones" at soldiers.

"There's so much freedom in the country that you can abuse the army, badmouth the air chief and pelt stones at soldiers. How much more freedom do you need in a country? He said what he felt like, that doesn't mean it's the truth," Kher was quoted as saying by ANI.

Shah found himself embroiled in a controversy over his remarks in reference to the Bulandshahr violence where a policeman was killed in mob violence over alleged cow slaughter earlier this month.

“In many areas we are witnessing that the death of a cow has more significance than that of a police officer. I feel anxious thinking about my children. Because they don’t have a religion... tomorrow if a mob surrounds them and asks ‘are you a Hindu or a Muslim?’ they will have no answer. It worries me because I don’t see the situation improving anytime soon. These matters don’t scare me, they make me angry,” Shah had said in his now-viral interview with an anti-hate crimes collective called Karwan-e-Mohabbat India.
