'Need to respect freedom of expression'

Thursday, March 02, 2017

Actress Vidya Balan says she does not want to add anything more to what is already happening with Delhi University student Gurmehar Kaur but feels one must respect others' freedom of expression.

Lady Shri Ram College student Gurmehar Kaur, daughter of army martyr Captain Mandeep Singh, had launched a viral social media campaign against Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP) following violence between members of unions AISA and ABVP workers in Delhi University's Ramjas College.

Kaur, 20, withdrew from her social media campaign yesterday after allegedly receiving threats from the members of the RSS-backed outfit and getting trolled.

When asked about what she feels regarding the issue, Vidya said, "I don't want to say much about this. I think what we really need to do is respect people's freedom of expression. 'He said something she said something', all are right in their place. But I don't want to add anything more, everyone has the right to express what they feel."

The 'Dirty Picture' actress, however, added that violence should not happen and there is no justification for that.

Last week, Delhi University's Ramjas College witnessed violence between members of AISA and ABVP workers.

The genesis of the clash was an invite to JNU students Umar Khalid and Shehla Rashid to address a seminar on Culture of Protests which was withdrawn by the college authorities following opposition by the ABVP.
