Mumbai: Bollywood actor Anupam Kher on Wednesday said he was scared about what was happening to the country in the wake of a huge political controversy over the happenings in Jawaharlal Nehru University in Delhi and subsequent developments.

He said the raging JNU row had transformed into an ideological fight between the BJP and its Left rivals, as Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi offered support to JNU students.

"...it angers me, shocks me as an Indian. I don't believe 1.3 billion people will let them destroy our country. There is much more in this country than the political games of certain parties," he said at the launch of Munmun Ghosh's novel 'Thicker Than Blood'.

"...what happened at Jawaharlal Nehru University. Whatever I have watched on video is frightening. In the capital city of our country, some groups are raising slogans about 'desh ki barbadi' and 'azaadi'. It angered me as a countryman."

Kher, 60, said freedom of speech does not mean people have the right to create disunity in the country.
