Home Entertainment Bollywood Interview "I Will Stand By a Secular and Democratic India", Says Twinkle Khanna

“I Will Stand By a Secular and Democratic India”, Says Twinkle Khanna

It all started after Akshay on Monday morning took to Twitter to clarify that he had earlier "accidentally" liked a tweet by Jamia Millia Islamia university students

A day after actor Akshay Kumar said he had “accidentally” liked a tweet by Jamia Millia Islamia University students, his wife and author Twinkle Khanna reiterated that she stands for a secular and democratic India where peaceful dissent is a constitutional right.

Twinkle took to Instagram on Tuesday evening and shared a tweet she had written last week.

The tweet read: “Discrimination based on race, colour, cast religion and other such social constructs in whatever form, goes against the fundamental and moral integrity of the human condition”.

She then captioned it: “That was last week and now add oppressing the voices of our students by using violence and we have crawled even further into the dark tunnel. I stand by a secular, democratic India where peaceful dissent is our constitutional right.”

Akshay is currently facing wrath from many people for saying that he had “accidentally” liked a controversial Jamia tweet, amidst protest against the Citizenship Amendment Act. A social media user called him “spineless” for his turnaround, to which filmmaker Anurag Kashyap agreed.
