Keep Sana Out of This, Says Ganguly After Daughter Shares ‘End of India’ Excerpt to Oppose CAA

New Delhi: BCCI Chairman Sourav Ganguly on Wednesday said that his daughter is too young to understand politics and people should keep her out of all the controversy.

Ganguly's comments came after his daughter, Sana Ganguly, took to Instagram to share an excerpt from Khuswant Singh's "The end of India", expressing her dissent over police crackdown on students of Jamia Millia Islamia University who were protesting against the Citizenship (Amendment) Act.

The excerpt read, “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.

“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,” the Instagram story read.

While the 18-year-old expressed her concern on the controversial law, the cricketing community has largely remained mute, including Virender Sehwag, who is an alumni of Jamia Millia Islamia.
