Javed Akhtar, who has always openly expressed his views on social issues, has also opposed this decision. He wrote from his Twitter account as soon as the news came out, 'Opening liquor shops in lockdown will bring disastrous results. According to research, cases of domestic violence have increased considerably. Alcohol will make these days more dangerous for children and women '.
Opening liquor shops during the lock down will only bring disastrous results. In any case according to all the surveys nowadays domestic violence has increased to a large extent. Liquor will make these days even more dangerous of for women and children.
