Veteran actor Shabana Azmi said today that anyone who criticizes the government is branded as an anti-national these days. She added that no one in the country should be afraid and no one needs a certificate to prove anything. "It is always necessary that we point out flaws for the betterment of our country. If we do not, how can our conditions improve? But the atmosphere is such that if we criticise the government, we are branded as anti-nationals. We should not be afraid, nobody needs their certificate," Ms Azmi said at an event in Madhya Pradesh's Indore.
