Kabir Khan was speaking to a source on Tuesday when he opened up on the incident of police brutality on the students of Delhi’s Jamia Millia Islamia University last month. The students were beaten up by the police while staging a protest against the Citizenship Amendment Act or CAA. Kabir Khan, an alumnus of Jamia, told IANS: “I feel strongly about these issues. It was, for me, a very uncomfortable visual when I watched those students of Jamia walking out with their hands in the air. I feel students have an absolute right to dissent, students have a right to protest. If you stop students from protesting, then it is the death of democracy. How can you prevent them from expressing dissent?”


Talking about the incident of police brutality on Jamia students, he added: “If the students don’t like something and they want to talk about it, you cannot stop them from doing so. If you think they are wrong, you can debate with them. But don’t have the police suppress them and beat them up in their campus. That’s not the culture we want.” Talking about the incident he shared: “All of us, as we grow up, as we start working, we all become a little corrupt and indifferent. But students are the idealistic future of our country. Our university campuses are the future of this country. What they produce will be the way India will be 10, 20 or 30 years from now on. I think it’s very important to respect that.” The filmmaker said he feels students are showing us the path to become more brave and courageous as a society. He expressed: “I’m so glad that students across the country are registering their protest, making all of us braver and more courageous in being able to express our opinion.”
