Naseer Ud Din is a well known Indian actor. He served Bollywood for his whole life. But as a Muslim, he always comes up against bad behavior for Muslims.
The internal situation in India is very bad due to brutal violence against students of Delhi’s Jawaharlal Nehru University by anti-Muslim controversial citizenship law and BJP workers. Protests against Modi’s policies have sprung up all over India, while Bollywood actors have also raised their voice against controversial law and student violence. Recently, the legendary actor of India Naseeruddin Shah, in his comments on the matter, criticized the Modi government. “Why is my passport, voter ID card, driving license, and Aadhaar card not enough to be my Indian citizen?” Naseeruddin Shah said. If I don’t have a birth certificate, does that mean we are all exempt from Indian citizenship?
"I do not need any reassurances, that Muslims do not need to worry. I am not worried….I am not afraid, I'm not anxious, I am angry. That such a law has been imposed on us." #NaseeruddinShah in an interview with @bombaywallah.

Referring to the reaction of Bollywood artists to the current situation in India, Naseeruddin Shah said that it is not surprising that some actors do not talk about it. Maybe they think they’ll lose a lot by talking about this issue? At the same time, he also praised Deepika Padukone’s courage and said that she too would lose something if she was poor. Will their popularity diminish and their beauty diminish? The film industry worships one thing and that is money. The voice of the younger generation is more important than the silence of the actors.
Here is Anupam Kher reaction to Naseer Ud Din Shah’s statement.
जनाब नसीरुदिन शाह साब के लिए मेरा प्यार भरा पैग़ाम!!! वो मुझसे बड़े है। उम्र में भी और तजुर्बे में भी। मै हमेशा से उनकी कला की इज़्ज़त करता आया हूँ और करता रहूँगा। पर कभी कभी कुछ बातों का दो टूक जवाब देना बहुत ज़रूरी होता। ये है मेरा जवाब। 🙏 pic.twitter.com/M4vb8RjGjj

People criticizing Naseer Ud Din Shah for his comments on Anupam Kher.
It should be clear that this is not the first time that Naseeruddin Shah has voiced his atrocities and injustice in India, but on many occasions, he has expressed his opinion on which extremist Hindus should leave India and go to Pakistan.
