From protests, debates to violence across the nation, a lot has been happening around the country, ever since the passage of the Citizenship Amendment Bill in both the houses of the parliament. As the situation is intensifying sports stars and Bollywood celebrities have also started giving their take on the controversial Act of Parliament.
Sunny Leone, the Bollywood actress is the latest name from the Bollywood to come out and speak about the ongoing protests and violence all around the nation. Condemning the violence that has erupted in Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU), Sunny Leone said that she is a “pro-peace” and believes that there might be an answer without violence. She said:
“I think the biggest issue I would like to address is violence. I don’t believe in violence. I believe that there might be an answer without violence. It’s not just the victim who is getting hurt but it’s also a family who is getting hurt, it’s also the idea of young people out there not feeling safe in this world anymore. I beg everybody to please stop the violence and let’s figure out a solution without hurting each other,”
“Violence doesn’t just affect just one person who is being violated or hurt. It affects the entire family because it also emotionally hurts them because their child is being hurt, their father, mother, sister are hurt.”
“I am pro-peace and I do not endorse violence. I am sure that there’s some resolution that will come without violence here,”
Talking about the Citizenship Amendment Bill, under this act, persecuted minorities including-Hindus, Sikhs, Jains, Buddhists, Parsis and Christians, who have entered India on or before December 31, 2014 will be granted the citizenship of the country.
