Hundreds of students converged at the old Delhi Police headquarters late Sunday, 15 December night for an “emergency” protest against police brutality at Jamia Millia University. This after violence in the national capital of Delhi during a demonstration against the amended Citizenship Act.
Video clips of police brutality against students of the Jamia Millia Islamia university went viral on social media on Sunday evening. Bollywood actor Akshay Kumar has tweeted clarifying about ‘mistakenly liking’ a tweet in support of the violence at Jamia.
Akshay clarified that it was a mistake and he doesn’t support such acts. He wrote, “Regarding the ‘like’ on the tweet of Jamia Milia students, it was by mistake. I was scrolling and accidentally it must have been pressed and when I realised I immediately unliked it as In no way do I support such acts.”
Twitter users were in for a shock when they saw the actor’s like on the tweet and responded by condemning the act.
The tweet in question, showed a clip of the Jamia violence and said, “Badhai ho…Jamia mein Azaadi mili hai (Jamia has got freedom)”.
