Now, the protesters have definitely crossed the line. Just because one is in the mode of ‘agitation’, no one has the right to attack a school bus, or any public property, whatsoever. The Karni Sena who is currently protesting against the film ‘Padmaavat’ attacked a school bus today with stones and video of the kids screaming and trying to save themselves has hit the internet. It definitely breaks our heart to see this video and we are in shock. Even the stars like Farhan Akhtar, Bhumi Pednekar, Jackky Bhagnani and others are in shock.
Taking it to Twitter, they have expressed their thoughts over the same. Calling it an act of terrorism, they have tweeted,
Attacking a school bus is not an agitation. It is terrorism. The people who did it are terrorists. Please refer to them as such.

Find it shocking that these cowards and hooligans are being allowed to attack children and the powers that be just watch and stare. How will India succeed if our children are not safe? https://t.co/Zkg6oHseaB

We agree with all three. Even the Supreme Court has given a green signal to the film, so why the protest? (Also Read: Padmaavat: Will the movie break the record of ‘Bajirao Mastani’? Hell yeah!)
‘Padmaavat’ that honours the Rajput glory is all set to hit the screens on January 25.
