Kriti Sanon has opened up about the violence used against the students of the Jamia Millia Islamia University, Delhi and the Aligarh Muslim University, which took place on Sunday (15 December) evening. Talking to the media at an event in Mumbai, Kriti said, “It really saddens me because there is so much violence, which is not a solution for anything. Violence won’t get us anything. Right now what we need is proper conversation on the topic. People need to be heard. Silent protest is something which is our right. So, the people who are protesting, they need to have a conversation with the government and the point of views need to come out.”

“The violence part is something which needs to be curbed and right now, we all need to come together, as a secular India that we are, and have a conversation like adults and solve the issue out.”

Earlier, Priyanka Chopra too, took to Twitter to comment about the same, and wrote, “Education for every child is our dream. Education is what empowered them to think independently. We have raised them to have a voice. In a thriving democracy, to raise one’s voice peacefully and be met with violence is wrong. Every voice counts. And each voice will work towards changing India. #HaveVoiceWillRaise #HaveVoiceMustRaise.”
