Last night (January 5, 2020), violence broke out at the JNU (Jawaharlal Nehru University) after masked men armed with sticks attacked students and teachers and damaged property on the campus, prompting the administration to call in police. While many B-town celebs including Swara Bhasker, Shabana Azmi, Mohd Zeeshan Ayyub, Taapsee Pannu and Hansal Mehta condemned the violence at the JNU and urged Delhi Police to intervene, megastar Amitabh Bachchan just posted an emoticon of 'folding hands' on his Twitter page.
Many fans related his tweet to the violence that happened last night at the JNU and slammed the megastar for staying mum. Many netizens also called the Don actor a 'spineless' man for not taking any stand over the ongoing political climate of the country.
