But many other celebrities has supported CAA and even criticized the protests.
The news from #UttarPradesh of beatings, detentions, discriminatory profiling of Muslims, torture and the rising death tolls is shameful and horrifying. Signals an utter break down of the rule of law. Ajay Bisht has turned UP police into a rogue force. #SackAdityanathGovt #Shame
