Mumbai: With the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) coming into effect on January 10, Anurag Kashyap has raised his voice in protest once again. The filmmaker, who has been vocal against the CAA ever since it was passed by Parliament on December 11, has now launched a personal attack on Prime Minister Narendra Modi and his family.
The CAA facilitates non-Muslim refugees from Pakistan, Bangladesh and Afghanistan getting Indian citizenship.
Protesting against this on Twitter, Kashyap launched a personal attack on Mr. Modi. Tweeting in Hindi, he demanded proof that Mr. Modi was educated, and wanted to see his degree in “entire political science.”
Kashyap also said that Mr. Modi should show his birth certificate, along with that of his father and his entire family, to the nation, and only then could he ask for papers from citizens. The filmmaker used the hashtag #f**kCAA as a mark of protest.
In a tweet calling the government “dumb” and comparing CAA to demonetisation, the filmmaker shared: “This government will do dialogue if they know how to talk. They cannot face a single question that’s not been vetted, they don’t have a plan, they haven’t put out a system. This is a dumb government. Their CAA is like demonetisation. No plan. No vision. Just bullying. #f**kCAA.”
Actor Swara Bhasker also protested against the enforcement of CAA. Sharing the gazette notification issued by the Union Home Ministry that says the Citizenship Amendment Act has been brought into force from January 10, 2020, the acotr called it a “Black Day for India.”
