Today eminent painter Wasim Kapoor joined these women. Some known faces such as Ashok Ganguli , Pabitra Sarkar, Bikashranjan Bhattacharyya, Abdul Mannan, Subhendu Maity, Srijan
Bhattracharya, Pallab Kirtaniya, Dipali Bhattachartya, and so on were present to support this initiative. Oishi Ghosh was also present in this protest. Mr Wasim Kapoor along with many artists created a 30 feet canvas assisted by their students. According to Wasim R Kapoor the act will divide the country on grounds of religion and the essence of unity will be ruined. The agenda for the protest is to take back the act. He also added that India is considered a country of huge diversities within the advent of CAA and NRC. This protest was supported by Kolkata’s creative community .
