Several Bollywood celebrities have joined the student’s movement against the Citizenship Amendment Act 2019 that was introduced by the government of Indian on 12 December 2019. Alia Bhatt, Farhan Akhtar, Akshay Kumar and Thalaiva Rajinikanth were trolled for their lack of knowledge and insensitivity towards the graving matter.
The 15th of December saw a massive debacle between the students of Jamia Milia Islamia University and the Delhi Police. Hello broke loose in Indian after Delhi Police allegedly attacked students with tear gas, stones and lathi charge for protesting peacefully in Jamia Nagar, Delhi. Besides the 700+ university and school students in India, several renowned faces from B-Town joined the protests on social media.
Bollywood celebrities like Kangana Ranaut, Vicky Kaushal, Siddharth Malhotra, Richa Chaddha, Sonakshi Sinha and Ajay Devgn shared their two cents on the matter on Twitter. While most celebrities were encouraged and appreciated for expressing their true feeling about CAA, some had to face the wrath of Twitter trolls.
The latest target for trolls being none other than ‘Raazi’ star Alia Bhatt who shared a picture of the old national preamble. The older version included the preamble with words such as ‘sovereign democratic republic’. However, as per the 42nd Amendment of the Constitution, it was changed to ‘sovereign, socialist secular democratic republic.’ It is evident that ‘Gully Boy’ starlet got her hands on the dated version of the preamble that made her a soft spot for Twitter trolls.
Alia Bhatt googles "Preamble", and uses the first picture that she could find.
She doesn't even know that this is the original Preamble, which doesn't have the words "Secular" and "Socialist", the ideals that they claim to be protecting. 🤣😂 pic.twitter.com/ag9tkshEuC

WOKE millennials getting influenced by Alia Bhatt, Farhan Akhtar and cocaine-wood reaffirms the fact that Ram Mandir isn't the need of the hour for this country.
What is needed right now, is a mental hospital to be built so that these WOKE millennials can get themselves treated.

I can list them out here. Huma Qureshi, Siddharth Malhotra, Parineeti Chopra, Alia Bhatt, Richa Chadha, Vicky Kaushal, Anurag Kashyap, Farhan Akhtar, Javed Akhtar. Stop watching their films. If they don’t think for INDIA, we should not waste our time for them. @ShefVaidya #CAA

Alia Bhatt has no right to comment on CAA. It's India's internal matter and she's a British citizen, who is workin in India! She cannot interfere in our internal matters!

Alia Bhatt laughing after Farhan told the media when asked about CAB
"I don't want to discuss details here right now. Aap dekhe details me jake to lagta hai aisa kuch ho sakta hai"
Too difficult to say who is PAPPU among Bollywood's pseudo intellectuals..

Who is calling for protests?
Farhan Akthar who posted the wrong Indian Map.
British Citizen Alia Bhatt who posted the Wrong preamble of India.
Stand-up comedians who think they are SC judges.
Opposition which has politicians out on bail.
Sonakshi Sinha who spreads fake news.

I'm naming few illiterates.
1) Farahan Akhtar
2) Alia Bhatt
3) Ayushman Khurana
4) Siddharth Malhotra
5) Anurag Khashyap
These fools doesn't know the A, B, C of CAA. They should be ignored as they are spreading hatred through their social media handles. 2/2#IndiaSupportsCAA

Alia bhatt uploads the original constitution which doesn’t have secularism in it as a form of protest.

Just recenetly, ‘Zindagi na Milegi Dobara’ actor Farhan Akhtar became a laughing meme for the Netizens when he looked clueless at August Kranti Maidan, Mumbai during the CAA protests. Upon being asked, the actor, who joined the locals at the protest site, couldn’t talk much about the CAA protests owing to his ‘lack of knowledge’ towards the matter of national concern. Union Minister Smriti Irani also shared a ‘Whattttayy…..(face palm)’ tweet expressing his disappointment as the so-called intellectual actor’s answer to the paparazzi.
He said, 'I don't want to discuss details here right now. Aap dekhe details me jake to lagta hai aisa kuch (discrimination) ho sakta hai.' pic.twitter.com/mgseNyPnvt

Farhan was also trolled heavily after he shared a truncated map of India on Twitter. The map had Kashmir marked as a part of Pakistan, not India. The same didn’t go down well with Netizens who trolled him to the T.
Yesterday G.. hadi #FarhanAkhtar tweeted a truncated map of India, missing parts of Kashmir. When he was rapped across d knuckles by IPS officer & informed dt he can be held guilty under IPC section
121 he instantly apologized saying dt d map was put by mistake.#SupportCAA pic.twitter.com/CQBdnlIEPx

Why you have put out Truncated India map without PoK ??
Why You silence on your Co religionist burning Railways & public Properties??
Why They chanting Hinduo se Aazadi ????
Are You planning a Direct Action day just like in 1946 ???

Like his father, Farhan Akhtar too is a Hardliner, part of Radical Islam. His message have reconfirmed it many times.

Not sure how calling for a protest against a law amounts to waging war against the country.
If the protest turns out to be violent then it might apply.
But the map that he has shared, that certainly violates Prevention of Insults to National Honour Act, 1971.

Half knowledge is most dangerous sir, NRC has nothing to do with religion. Don't spread fake news or deactivate twitter 🙏

Actress Disha Patani was also trolled for sharing a bikini-clad picture on Instagram while the entire nation was engulfed in deep tension due to CAA protests.
‘WAR’ star Hrithik Roshan too became a soft target when he posted a heartfelt message on Twitter which had nothing to do with his stand on the CAA protest matters.
As a parent and a citizen of india , I am deeply saddened by the unrest across various educational institutions of our country. I hope and pray for peace to return as soon as possible. Great teachers learn from their students. I salute the worlds youngest democracy.

Saddened by the unrest? The unrest is cause to be happy. It's the Citizenship Amendment Act and the NRC that ought to sadden you.
