The controversy reached its peak when the Delhi police entered the campus of the Jamia Millia Islamia on December 15 post the protest by the students over the Citizenship Amendment Act allegedly went violent. The protest was against the new CAA bill regarding the citizenship amendment was passed.
The students also found support by actress Priyanka as she also on Twitter put out her thought supporting the students.
Priyanka wrote, “Education for every child is our dream. Education is what empowered them to think independently. We have raised them to have a voice. In a thriving democracy, to raise one’s voice peacefully and be met with violence is wrong. Every voice counts. And each voice will work towards changing India. #HaveVoiceWillRaise #HaveVoiceMustRaise.”
