Bollywood actor Ayushmann Khurrana took to his Twitter account and expressed his stand in the form of an original verse written by him amidst the ongoing political scenario in the country. Condemning the brutal attacks on students and teachers of Jawarharlal Nehru University (JNU) on Sunday evening, Ayushmann penned his thoughts stating 'insaaniyat se bada kuch nahin' (that there is nothing greater than humanity). He went onto say that if there are people whose views and thoughts differ, then 'tujhe uss soch ko nochne ka hak nahin' (no one has the right to pluck at their views).

Have a look at his tweet:

(there's nothing greater than humanity
Not religion, not politics
not treasure, not heritage
Some have new ideas and opinions
If they differ then different they should be
But you have no right to pluck that idea
This is the Indian democracy
and there is no doubt in it.)
