Social media sometimes can transform into perhaps the most bizarre places to be. Back in 2019, the nation was witnessing massive protests as the government announced Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA). Social media was divided into two parts and Bollywood celebs also shared their perspectives on the same. In the midst of the same, Hrithik Roshan also shared his perspectives on Twitter and called India the‘ youngest democracy’ and got trolled for the same.
It was December 2019 when the government announced the CAA and it took social media by storm alongside protests all over the nation. Delhi, Aligarh and Assam were the few places where the protest took place with a huge number of people coming forward against the act.
In the midst of the same, Hrithik Roshan took to his Twitter and wrote, “As a parent and citizen of India, I am deeply saddened by the unrest across various educational institutions of our country. I hope and pray for peace to return as soon as possible. Great teachers learn from their students. I salute the world’s youngest democracy.”

As soon as Hrithik Roshan’s tweet went viral, netizens began trolling the actor because it’s not India but Tunisia with the youngest democracy in the world.
Rest is okay, but why is he saluting Tunisia? https://t.co/FcUpoaua5H

India is not the world’s youngest democracy. And people are increasingly worried about how long we will remain one.
