BCCI Captain Sourav Ganguly received backlash for not supporting his daughter, Sana Ganguly’s viewpoints on CAA protests. He called her ‘too young to know about politics’.
Sana Ganguly, daughter of BCCI Captain Sourav Ganguly took to Instagram Stories to share an excerpt from the book ‘The End of India’ by renowned writer Khushwant Singh. In the shared excerpt she expresses her dissent and agitation on the recent Delhi Police crackdown on students of Jami Milia Islamia University New Delhi. The students were pelted with stones and tear gas as they took to the streets of Jami Nagar to protest against the Citizenship Amendment Act 2019.
Sana Ganguly hit headlines with her act of ‘maturity’ and ‘sensible school of thought’. Even former finance minister P Chidambaram’s son, Karti, posted her screenshot with the words, “Bravo Sana Ganguly”.

However, dad Sourav Ganguly wished to keep Sana out of politics. His tweet said that Sana was ‘too young to know anything about politics’. This didn’t go down well with Twitterati who lashed out on Sourav Ganguly for his condemning daughter’s thoughts.
Please keep Sana out of all this issues .. this post is not true .. she is too young a girl to know about anything in politics

The Twitterati came out in support of Sana Ganguly claiming that if she was old enough to cast her vote in elections, she has the right to have a distinct opinion. Sourav was also thoroughly bashed for not backing his daughter’s opinion. Instead, pulling her down for being vocal about her opinion.
Dear Dada, she spoke the truth which many legends are yet to speak up. If saying the right thing does not require to "know anything in politics", then it's better than "knowing everything in politics" & keep quite. You as a father should be proud of this act of her! #SanaGanguly https://t.co/XklxdAY9tz

Sourav lost everything what he earned in 20 years, just by taking a decision to work under Jay Shah
Sana Earned all that what her father lost by just speaking what is Right
History Recalls The Brave One…

#SanaGanguly Sana is 18, old enough to vote, old enough to marry without her father’s permission.
Sourav, in trying to dismiss her thoughts, u are dismissing your own credibility. U might have been Prince of Kolkata, but u are intellectually a pauper, a stooge of Shah.

Now waiting for #sanaganguly s story on Instagram saying
Don't drag my dad in ur dirty politics & threaten his BCCI Chair over my Insta Story condemning the attack on #JamiaMilia.
He s politically too naive to understand the filth of communal propaganda and divisive politics
