Hours after Sourav Ganguly’s daughter Sana reportedly took to Instagram to share an excerpt on the Sangh’s "fascist tendencies" from Khushwant Singh’s book The End of India, the BCCI president tweeted, “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.”

Long before her father’s tweet however, 18-year-old Sana had already deleted the Instastory in question.

What Sana’s Instastory Reportedly Said

The following is what had Sana reportedly posted as an Instagram story:

“Every fascist regime needs communities and groups it can demonize in order to thrive. It starts with one group or two. But it never ends there. A movement built on hate can only sustain itself by continually creating fear and strife. Those of us today who feel secure because we are not Muslims or Christians are living in a fool’s paradise.

The Sangh is already targeting the Leftist historians and “Westernized” youth. Tomorrow it will turn its hate on women who wear skirts, people who eat meat, drink liquor, watch foreign films, don’t go on annual pilgrimages to temples, use toothpaste instead of danth manjan, prefer allopathic doctors to vaids, kiss or shake hands in greeting instead of shouting ‘Jai Shri Ram’. No one is safe. We must realize this if we hope to keep India alive.”

Reactions To Sourav’s Tweet

If Sana’s post on Wednesday had drawn sharp reactions online, so did her father’s response to the matter.
