Bollywood reacts to lathi-charge on Ramdev


Bollywood celebrities like Preity Zinta, Celina Jaitley, Vivek Oberoi, Anupam Kher express their anger on lathi charge and tear gas meted to the yoga guru Ramdev’s followers at Ram lila maidan, calling it undemocratic, illegal and shameful.

PREITY ZINTA
A dark and sad day for India! How dare the cops tear gas and lathi charge women, children and peaceful protesters against corruption! Not DONE!

CELINA JAITLY
Corruption cannot be battled by the bhook hadtaals of these self-proclaimed leaders with a personal agenda. Every one cannot be Anna Hazare.

RAVEENA TANDON
This country gives everyone the right to protest! Remember?

VIVEK OBEROI
Watching disturbing images of injured, crying women and elderly people. Violence is never a solution. What happened to our Gandhian legacy of ahimsa?

ANUPAM KHER
It is shocking to see how police and authorities have behaved with the crowds at Ramlila Maidan. It is unfair and undemocratic. Shame.

SHEKHAR KAPUR
In this one stupid act the government has sent the message that peaceful protests no longer work and opened the road to violence. 50,000 Indian citizens are victims of police brutality for the crime of wanting to express their anguish at the corrupt system.

RAM GOPAL VARMA
Considering our great Indian mentality more than Hazares and Ramdevs fasting we might get better results if Shah Rukh Khan, Rajnikanth, Sachin Tendlkar and Katrina Kaif fast.

RANVIR SHOREY

Shameful state of affairs. The government has turned Ramlila grounds into a mini-Tahrir. All on their own. The people want the government to be corruption-free. The government says it wants to be corruption-free. Where's the need for tear gas?

VISHAL DADLANI
Ramdev is an irritant, and his political views are notoriously nonsense-based. But, charging a peaceful crowd? What was it? Col Dyer Diwas?
