Sourav Ganguly Rejects Daughter’s IG Post Amidst Protest, He Calls Her ‘Too Young For Politics’

Massive protests are taking place across the country against the Citizenship Amendment Act. While many have taken to the streets, a significant number of people are protesting against the act on social media calling it discriminatory. One of such people protesting online is Sourav Ganguly’s daughter, Sana Ganguly.

According to a report by News18, Sana took to her Instagram account to post an excerpt from Khushwant Singh’s book ‘The End Of India’. This is what it 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.”

Happy children’s day to all

People on the internet considered this to be her political stance amidst the protests. Some even went on to share a screenshot of her post and soon it got viral.

However, Sourav Ganguly later took to Twitter to ask people to keep Sana out of politics as she is “too young” to understand it and that her post is “not true”, reports The Hindu.

People on Twitter started calling him out for dismissing his daughter’s valid political opinion. Some also reminded him that Sana is 18-years old and she deserves to get her point across.

While some may think that Ganguly is just being a protective father and shielding Sana from online trolls, calling her post as untrue and underestimating her political understanding isn’t called for.
