Priyanka Chopra has criticized Republican presidential front runner Donald Trump‘s call for banning Muslim immigrants. Priyanka saying generalizing a type of people is “really primitive”. Priyanka shared her views about the battle against extremism, which has come up repeatedly in the 2016 presidential race, at the TIME 100 gala on Tuesday night in New York.
Last year, the business mogul and presidential hopeful had called for a ban on Muslims entering the US to “protect the country”, after the San Bernardino shooting in December in which 14 people were killed. Trump also claimed to have seen thousands of Muslims celebrating in New Jersey after the 9/11 terror attacks, which brought down the Twin Towers.
Priyanka’s name has been featured in Time magazine’s 100 Most Influential People in the world alongside Oscar-winning actor Leonardo DiCaprio, Facebook founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg, singer Nicki Minaj and Trump. Priyanka said, “I just think you can’t put a ban on anyone. Generalizing a type of people is really primitive.”
Priyanka said the fight against terrorism had grown so complex that “you can’t put a face on it any more. After her role of FBI agent Alex Parrish in “Quantico”, which is aired on Star World and Star World HD in India, Priyanka bagged a role in “Baywatch” alongside Hollywood A-listers Dwayne Johnson and Zac Efron. Priyanka is at present shooting for Baywatch.
