The condition in Delhi, at present, is extremely tensed. Adding onto the horror was the recently-held attacks at the Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU). Last night, a group of masked goons illegally trespassed into the education premises and created havoc by hitting the students, teachers and damaging the university’s property. This has caused a lot of outrage on social media and a lot of people are expressing their angst in the form of protests and long criticism on the internet. One such case is that of Bollywood actress Swara Bhasker and her mother, who have been quite vocal on their disagreement over the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA).
Yesterday night, Swara Bhasker’s mother was a part of one such protest that took place in Delhi. Taking to her social media, Swara shared a video of her urging the citizens on India to gather near JNU and help in stopping the horrific tragedy. She then shared an SMS from her mother that was about the mob’s threat to all the protesters. It read, “FROM MY MOTHER via sms: The mob outside the north gate is shouting desh ke gaddaaron ko, goli maaro salon ko.” (ALSO READ - JNU Violence: Swara Bhasker, Riteish Deshmukh, Richa Chhada Are VERY ANGRY Over The Brutal Student Attack)

Soon after, the Veere Di Wedding actress shared another update in regards to her mother’s participation in the protest, stating that she is safe. Swara also thanked all the peaceful protesters for risking their lives. “My mom is safe. JNU is peaceful for now & the gates are open! Eternal gratitude to the citizen protestors of Delhi who showed up at JNU main gate earlier tonight- you saved JNU! Thanks to the media & reporters who risked their own safety & showed Us what terror was unleashed 2day,” she wrote.
