Anurag Kashyap lashes out at Delhi Police for biases after BJP’s Kapil Mishra stages protest march calling for violence


Filmmaker Anurag Kashyap has lashed out at the Delhi Police for biases after BJP’s Kapil Mishra was allowed to lead a protest march calling for violence with slogans such as Desh Ke Gaddaron Ko, Goli Maro Saalon Ko (Shoot the traitors).


Reacting to a video posted by Mishra himself, Kashyap wrote, “No section 144 for those who protest in favour even if they are shouting “देश के ग़द्दारों को, गोली मारो सालों को”। that’s how biased the state and the government is.”

In the video posted by Mishra, he was seen calling for the murder of ‘traitors.’ Mishra, a former AAP MLA, later explained that his reference to traitors was for those indulging in violent protests against the amended Citizenship Act.

What many could not understand was how the Delhi Police had no problem in allowing Mishra to lead a protest march calling for the shooting down of anti-CAA protesters, but the same police did not allow Bhim Army chief Chandra Shekhar Azad to lead a peaceful march at Delhi’s Jama Masjid.

Azad was detained by the Delhi Police after he reached the Jama Masjid on Friday. He had later managed to slip out of the Delhi Police’s captivity.

Mishra, who won his last assembly elections on AAP ticket and was even made a minister by Arvind Kejriwal, had famously exposed Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Home Minister Amit Shah in the Delhi assembly for their alleged role in the snooping controversy.
