Mukesh Bhatt on Citizenship Amendment Act: Government should take protests seriously
Expressing his displeasure over the implementation of the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA), producer Mukesh Bhatt said that if the protests are happening in the entire country, we should accept that something is wrong.
"I am personally upset with the implementation of CAA. The entire country is burning and crying. Despite that if you can't see anything, it's really unfortunate. If protests against CAA are happening in the entire country and our young students are protesting against it on streets, then we should accept that something is wrong," said Bhatt while interacting with the media at the launch of Amit Khanna's book Words Sounds Images: A History Of Media And Entertainment In India.
He further added that the government should consider the nationwide protests against CAA seriously.
"You (government) will say that youth is concentrating on unnecessary things, but that is good a thing to say only to pacify yourself. I feel something wrong has happened and we should correct it. We don't know what is the solution of this issue because all we know is how to entertain people. I am totally against violent protests but the government has to consider the protesters' demand seriously," added Bhatt.
