Giving his take on the ongoing nationwide protests against CAA and JNU violence, former Indian captain Sunil Gavaskar said, “The country is in turmoil but we will overcome.”

He further said the country is in turmoil and some students are on the streets when they need to be in the classrooms and focus on their career.

“When students need to be in classrooms, some are on the streets and some even ending in hospitals,” Gavaskar said.

“India can move forward only when people unite and march ahead together,” Gavaskar said.

He further added that those on the streets must get back to the classrooms and start focussing on their careers.

“Majority of students are in the classrooms and are focussing hard in building a career for themselves and trying to take India forward,” Gavaskar reiterated.

Recently, former Indian cricketer Sanjay Manjrekar lauded the people of Mumbai for staging a protest against the violence in JNU.

A number of students of the Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) were attacked by masked goons of January 5, injuring several of them severely.

There have been widespread protests against the JNU attack and several celebrities have spoken against the attacks.
