After Devendra Fadnavis, now Anupam Kher has fumed over the display of a ‘Free Kashmir’ placard in Mumbai during the protests against the recent violence at Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU). The veteran actor questioned the ‘connection’ as to why such a placard was displayed at the protests. The A Wednesday star also said if no 'responsible person' objected to it, he feels it highlights a 'different motive’ and was not a student agitation.
Anupam Kher took to Twitter late on Monday to share an image of the placard being held by a female student, to express his fury. The incident had taken place at the Gateway of India, where the protests against the horrific violence against JNU students, were held. The image and video had gone viral.
Why is this poster being displayed in Mumbai for the protest against violence in #JNU ? What is the connection? Has any responsible person in this rally objected to the presence of this placard? If not. Then I am sorry this is not a student’s agitation. This has different motive. pic.twitter.com/eNSfw1iRGE— Anupam Kher (@AnupamPKher) January 6, 2020
Earlier, former Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis too had questioned his successor Uddhav Thackeray. He had asked what the protest was for ‘exactly’ and also termed them as ‘separatist elements’. He also pointed out that it held 2 kilometres from the Chief Minister’s Office, while asking if the CM will ‘tolerate’ the ‘Anti India campaign’ ‘under his nose.’
