Akshay Kumar attracts flak as he ‘likes’ a video that mocks the attacks on Jamia Milia Islamia students who have been protesting against the Citizenship Amendment Act 2019.
The Bollywood celebrities like Anubhav Sinha, Swara Bhaskar, Sayani Gupta Vikrant Massey and Richa Chadha have condemned the government’s negligence on Jamia Milia Islamia protests.
The entire industry has come together as one to discourage the deadly protests but it seems ‘Gold’ star Akshay Kumar is aloof. The actor had apparently ‘liked’ a video that mocked the Jamia Milia Islamia students attacks. This has attracted major flak for the ‘Kesari’ star who is claimed as the ‘most-patriotic’ star of all times.
The fans are in utter shock to see their Khiladi Kumar’s adverse behavior. The Twitterati have left no stone upturned to bring down Akshay Kumar for his activity. Even though Akshay took to Twitter to issue an apology for ‘accidently’ liking the video, the fans are in no mood to spare the man. Tweets filled with hate, mockery about his Canadian citizenship and fake patriotism are trending on Twitter under the hashtag #JamiaProtest and #BoycottCanadianKumar.
Videshiyon ka toh kaam hai desh mein aag lagana. Shame on this Canadian.

I'm a realist. Where I come from, 'phenomenons' don't exist. I'm from a land where people make mistakes and try again, harder, faster; where negativity is not an option- @akshaykumar sir#ISupportAkshay

For the uninitiated, Jamia Milia Islamia students are currently protesting against the Citizenship Amendment ct 2019 that seeks to provide citizenship to non-Muslims religious minorities from three neighboring countries who arrived in India to escape religious persecution. The protests turned serious when the students came to blows with the police officers who enforced lathi charge and tear gas on them.
According to reports, the protesters had torched up 4 public buses and two police vehicles near Friends Colony area in Delhi. On Sunday, two firemen were injured during stone pelting between the police and protesters. Given all the facade the Jamia student body claims to have no participation or role in the protests. They believe a certain group of ‘unknowns’ joined the protests to make it violent.
The tension in the Jamia Nagar region of Delhi continues to dwell.
