Sushant said he paid the price for speaking truth

Indian actor Sushant Singh has been expelled from his show ‘Savdhaan India’ for speaking out against the Modi government’s controversial policies.

Sushant has been vocal about the controversial Citizenship Amendment Act 2019 against India’s Muslim minority and also openly criticized Delhi police’s brutality on Jamia Millia University students.

His criticism, however, has cost him his show.

On Tuesday, Singh took to Twitter to announce the news.

“And, my stint with ‘Savdhaan India’ has ended.”

The actor said it was the price he paid for speaking the truth.

“A very small price my friend. Otherwise, how will you face Bhagat Singh, Sukhdev, and Rajguru?”

​He was referring to his role in all historic biographical movie “The Legend of Bhagat Singh,” in which he played the role of a freedom fighter Sukhdev. The movie featured Ajay Devgan as Bhagat Singh and D Santosh as Rajguru. All of them were hanged by the British Army in 1931.

Sushant Singh has been hosting the crime-thriller, ‘Savdhaan India’ since 2011. The show mainly featured the cases in which justice was delivered to the victims.

 

About Citizenship Amendment Act 2019

The law has been formulated to grant citizenship rights to all minorities including Buddhists, Christians, Hindus, Jains, Sikhs, and Parsis who faced persecution in Afghanistan, Pakistan, and Bangladesh and migrated to India before 2015.

However, the recent amendment has contentiously excluded Muslims from this right, depicting discrimination and prejudice against the Muslim community.
