Board of Control for Cricket in India's (BCCI) president Sourav Ganguly on Wednesday described her daughter Sana's alleged Instagram post related to the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) as “not true”. Ganguly added that his daughter is “too young” to know anything about politics, and she should be left alone.
"Please keep Sana out of all these issues ... this post is not true ... she is too young a girl to know about anything in politics," Ganguly tweeted.
While students across the country are protesting on the Citizenship Amendment Act, the people of Twitter and other social media platforms have called out celebrities and people with the power to influence for observing silence.
Sana Ganguly took to Instagram to share her take on the current situation in India which is being called as fascist and compared to Nazi Germany.
Sana shared a story on her Instagram which is an excerpt from the book ‘The End of India’ by Khushwant Singh, published in 2003.
The excerpt read: “A movement built on hate can only sustain itself by continually creating hate and strife.”
However, Sana’s Instagram story was reportedly deleted. Instagram stories ideally last for 24 hours unless deleted by the owner of the account or taken down by Instagram.
It is likely that Sana must have been advised to take the story down as rumours suggest that Sourav may contest the West Bengal Assembly elections on the BJP ticket.
