Board for Control of Cricket for India chief Sourav Ganguly’s 18-year-old daughter Sana was the latest addition to the huge group of celebrities who have expressed their opinions on the new Citizenship Act. She shared an excerpt from Khushwant Singh’s ‘The End of India’ (published in 2003) on Instagram voicing her dissent on the Citizenship Amendment Act.

“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.”
