The word ‘azadi’ has gained firm ground in public discourse and has almost become a movement after JNU students’ union president Kanhaiya Kumar’s fiery speech before his arrest on February 12 and after his release on March 3. Soon after his release Thursday, he delivered a powerful speech which has now come to be known as ‘azadi’ speech. He threw some very catchy and hard-hitting one-liners, ‘We want azadi within India, not from India’ being one.
While the hashtag #Azaadi has been trending on and off since the last month with Twitterati floating opinion on casteism, feudalism, communalism, here are people demanding ‘azadi’ from real-life problems.
Okay, that’s serious but legit?
Triple Talaaq waad se Azaadi
Burkhawaad se Azaadi

4 biwi se Azaadi
Duniya flat hain kehne ki azaadi

They got a little carried away…
Ab khud se azaadi toh sirf maut de sakti hai ya phir ishq…

Azaadi ke Ghaddaroun se Azadi
Angrez ke Ghulamoun se
