Many Bollywood celebrities have spoken out against CAA and the violence on Jamia Millia Islamia students. Jim Sarbh called the Act another nail in the coffin of a democratic, secular India. “Since 1945, unemployment has been the worst. We are in a terrible state, and what better thing than to unify against a common enemy. It’s an age-old political trick and I am absolutely against it. Within this context there is the murky implementation of the NRC wherein there is no transparency and no guidelines, and we have no idea how this is going to work out. In Assam, it was a failed experiment. In these extremely biased hands I believe that is law is one more nail in the coffin of a democratic, secular India,” he said.
