Citizenship Amendment Act, 2019 that was passed a few days back sparked unhappiness amongst Indians. Protests against the same are seen taking place in different places of the country and the most recent was at the Jamia Millia Islamia University in Delhi, who were also against the act. The Delhi Police was also recently seen unlawfully entering the campus of Jamia Millia Islamia University to stop the protest against the passing the amended Citizenship Act, and beat up several students and staff members, which in turn created a heated situation at the university.
Apart from the various people who criticised the act, even Bollywood celebs are seen reacting to the gruesome situation. the massive protests in Delhi and even express their unhappiness with the Delhi Police. Celebs such as Akshay Kumar, Taapsee Pannu, Vikrant Massey, Swara Bhasker and more took to Twitter to express their opinions on the massive protests in Delhi and even express their unhappiness with the Delhi Police.
Here’s what they had to say:
Regarding the ‘like’ on the tweet of Jamia Milia students, it was by mistake. I was scrolling and accidentally it must have been pressed and when I realised I immediately unliked it as In no way do I support such acts.

Wonder if this is a start or the end. Whatever it is, this is surely writing new rules of the land and those who don’t fit in can very well see the consequences.

This is heartbreaking… In which civilized country is this normal ? Why such excessive force ? Who tear gases students studying inside a library? Nothing justifies this. https://t.co/fK2kX17Qqg

This has gone too far.. can’t stay silent any longer . This government is clearly fascist .. and it makes me angry to see voices that can actually make a difference stay quiet ..

I strongly condemn the violence that the police have shown in dealing with the students. In a democracy the citizens have the right to peacefully protest.I also condemn any kind of act of destruction of the public properties. Violence is not the solution for anything!

In 1987 I made a film called Yeh Woh Manzil Toh Nahin on the background of student politics . Towards the climax the police enter the campus and brutally beat up the students . Nothing has changed . Terrible that now we know where the flowers gone . Crushed !
