Several filmmakers, actors, lyricists and writers condemned the police violence used against the students of the Jamia Millia Islamia University, Delhi and the Aligarh Muslim University. A recent addition to the list of Bollywood celebrities is actress Priyanka Chopra. The actress is a global UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador and works towards the cause of education.
Raising her concern against the Citizenship Amendment Act and the violence against students, Priyanka spoke up on her twitter account. She 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 the violence is wrong. Every voice counts. And each voice will work towards changing India. #HaveVoiceWillRaise #HaveVoiceMustRaise.”
