While many requested the actor to not leave the platform in a state of such crisis, one user commented, “Avoid them, block them. But don’t leave this social media to share your opinions because they want our voice to be silenced, let’s not let that happen :),” another said, “The situation will improve only if we don’t give up the fight. On the streets On social media… It is too big a battle to stay away. After all, it is a battle for our country. Aur ham jeetenge. Inshallah!!”
Recently, a video of Jaaved Jaaferi giving a speech about the current government and its policy decisions went viral.
In the video, he says, “Everyone used to say that the Congress is corrupt and I accepted that. But what are you [BJP] doing? You said you’ll make schools, you’ll improve education, health policy, unemployment but you don’t do any of that. Instead you say, ‘hum mandir yahi banayenge’ Aur kuch hai nai kya banane ko yaar? Mulk banao na.”
He further adds, “This Citizen Amendment Act (CAA) is very dangerous and very communal. It is against everything mentioned in the Constitution; it is also against the values of Sardar Patel, Gandhiji, Nehru, Ambedkar and all the other people who’ve made the Constitution. You’re telling one particular sect that you are excluded and everyone else is included. How is that okay?”
