Many Indian superstars have condemned the use of force against students in New Delhi after videos and photos of the police beating the youth went viral on social networking platforms and the mainstream media also aired them.

Indian actor Sidharth Malhotra took to Twitter to express his displeasure over the police action against students in the country’s capital.

“In a democracy like ours, it’s sad to see violence against citizens for voicing their opinion through peaceful protests,” Malhotra tweeted.

Indian actor Manoj Bajpayee said he was “with the students and [support] their democratic right to protest”.

“I condemn violence against protesting students,” he tweeted.

Actor and producer Pooja Bhatt asked the people of India to raise their voice against the use of force against the protesting students.

“I strongly condemn the violence that the police have shown in dealing with the students,” Rajkummar Rao tweeted.

Dia Mirza also voiced support for students in her tweet and said: “Seeing videos of peaceful protesting students being dragged and beaten up is a visual that will be hard to forget.”

“This is not the time to sit back. Let’s stand united to the idea of India,” she said.
