Sourav’s daughter puts out anti-CAA post, takes it down

BCCI president and former India cricket captain Sourav Ganguly's daughter Sana posted an Instagram story from her verified handle on Wednesday, which strongly opposed the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA). The 18-year-old quoted the words of writer-historian Khushwant Singh’s work of non-fiction, The End of India (2003), to underline her dissent. The post was later taken down.
"Every fascist regime needs communities and groups it can demonize in order to thrive. It starts with one group or two. But it never ends there. A movement built on hate can only sustain itself by continually creating fear and strife," posted Sana, a trained Odissi dancer like her mother Dona. She has over 68,000 followers on Instagram.
“Those of us today who feel secure because we are not Muslims or Christians are living in a fool’s paradise. The Sangh is already targeting the Leftist historians and “Westernized” youth. Tomorrow it will turn its hate on women who wear skirts, people who eat meat, drink liquor, watch foreign films, don’t go on annual pilgrimages to temples, use toothpaste instead of danth manjan, prefer allopathic doctors to vaids, kiss or shake hands in greeting instead of shouting ‘Jai Shri Ram’. No one is safe. We must realize this if we hope to keep India alive,” Sana's Instagram story read.
