Film director Anurag Kashyap reached Shaheen Bagh on Friday and participated in the protest and strike there. Kashyap said that like people were made to fear Gabbar in childhood, these days, people are made to fear the Home Minister. He also told people that this fight will go on for a long time.

Earlier, on the occasion of Valentine’s Day on Friday, protesters from Shaheen Bagh wished Prime Minister Narendra Modi a Happy Valentine’s Day in a unique manner. Protesters gave a Valentine’s Day card to PM Modi, in which they wrote, “PM Modi, please come to Shaheen Bagh, take your gift and talk to us.”
