Anurag Kashyap has been quite vocal about his dislike towards the Central Government. The filmmaker does not let any opportunity pass by to trash the Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s government. He has become more vociferous after the Citizenship Amendment Act and the Jawaharlal Nehru University protest violence. This time around, he took to Twitter to criticize Home Minister Amit Shah after the violence at his election rally in the capital on Sunday.
Anurag took to Twitter to berate Shah and wrote “Our Home Minister is a coward. He controls the police, he controls the goons, amps-up his own security and has unarmed protestors attacked. Amit Shah's behaviour is cheap and low. History will spit on an animal like him."

Anurag’s tweet comes after reports of protesters being beaten up at Shah’s rally in Delhi surfaced. Shah was campaigning for BJP in the Delhi Assembly elections of February 8 when a small group of protesters started raising anti-CAA slogans. A scuffle ensued between them and Shah’s supporters and the protesters got beaten up. However, Shah directed his security to take the youth who got beaten up to safety.
However, Anurag was slammed by many on Twitter for his unsavoury remarks towards the Home Minister.
