He said, "I feel strongly about these issues. It was, for me, a very uncomfortable visual when I watched those students of Jamia walking out with their hands in the air. I feel students have an absolute right to dissent, students have a right to protest. If you stop students from protesting, then it is the death of democracy. How can you prevent them from expressing dissent?"
"If the students don't like something and they want to talk about it, you cannot stop them from doing so. If you think they are wrong, you can debate with them. But don't have the police suppress them and beat them up in their campus. That's not the culture we want," he adds further.

"All of us, as we grow up, as we start working, we all become a little corrupted and indifferent. But students are the idealistic future of our country. Our university campuses are the future of this country. What they produce will be the way India will be 10, 20 or 30 years from now on. I think it's very important to respect that."
Appreciating the students across the nation for coming in support of the CAA NRC protest he said, "I'm so glad that students across the country are registering their protest, making all of us braver and more courageous in being able to express our opinion."
