We are with the students! Shame on you @DelhiPolice— Konkona Sensharma (@konkonas) December 15, 2019
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!— Rajkummar Rao (@RajkummarRao) December 16, 2019
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 ..— Anurag Kashyap (@anuragkashyap72) December 16, 2019
To speak with silence when we should protest is what makes cowards out of men. India is burning. One can’t be mute anymore.— Pooja Bhatt (@PoojaB1972) December 16, 2019
