Bollywood actress Swara Bhasker has been at the forefront of activism for a while now. Her stance against the ruling government, especially during the anti CAA-NRC rallies have made her a constant target for trolls. However, her excellence at oratory has garnered attention of many, who have hailed for being a voice for the oppressed.
Recently, Bhasker was present at an anti CAA-NRC rally in Indore, Madhya Pradesh. Her fiery speech at the podium took a dig at all those ‘trying to divide the nation’. She even shared a tweet of the video with a subtle jibe at journalist Arnab Goswami, who was heckled by comedian Kunal Kamra on a flight. The incident led to several airlines banning Kamra from flying.
She wrote, “Basically this was my turn as ‘Arnab’ .. of the other side! #indore #CAA_NRC_Protests Watch the speech in the link below.. Resist injustice and #StandUpForIndia thanks Joy!”

Earlier she shared another snippet from her speech, chanting "Hum Kagaz Nahin Dikhayenge" penned by Varun Grover. She tweeted, "We must move towards a total peaceful non- cooperation & civil disobedience against this unethical & inhuman CAA-NRC-NPR project. Thanks @varungrover for giving us this slogan"
