If you don't have people expressing their views on certain matters, something is wrong with the democracy. It's not a democracy. So, people expressing that they are not happy with something, I think that's good. As far as the situation of things going violent, that's something that's not supposed to happen."

Meanwhile, police in India's western Ahmedabad city detained 49 people in connection with violence during protests against the new law on Thursday (December 19).
