Sanjay Manjrekar became one among the few from sports fraternity to voice his opinion on the ongoing agitations against the imposition of the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) and NRC across India. Manjrekar, a cricketer-turned-commentator, who has often found himself in hot waters for his comments and opinions on certain matters joined the protests against the recent violence in the Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) in Delhi and lauded Mumbai city for standing up against the JNU violence. Manjrekar quoted a tweet which showed photographs of a large number of students at the Gateway of India, who had gathered to protest against the attack on JNU students inside their won campus on January 05, 2019 (Sunday). JNU Violence: Protest at Gateway of India Continues, People Demand PM's Resignation.

“Well done Mumbai!” wrote Manjrekar quoting the tweet before sharing his opinion about the ongoing furore in the country against CAA and NRC. “Over the years Indians have given boundless love to their heroes without caring about their religion. That’s why I believe its impossible to shake India’s strong, secular instincts,” wrote Manjrekar in a tweet hours after saluting Mumbai city for the protests. JNU Violence: Several Bollywood Personalities Join Protest Against Attack at Mumbai's Carter Road.

Sanjay Manjrekar Speaks Out

Manjrekar surprisingly, after his tweets, became one among very few members from the sports fraternity to speak out about the violence and ongoing protests throughout the country. The stoic silence of the sports fraternity in general and their refusal to speak on matters pertaining to CAA and NRC have shocked the netizens especially with the Indian sportsperson's growing willingness to speak and indulge on issues in India. Irfan Pathan, Saina Nehwal, Aakash Chopra, Jwala Gutta and Gautam Gambhir have been among the others from the sports fraternity to speak on the ongoing violence in the country.
