Bengaluru 20-Dec: Advocates For Nation Group organized a Discussion on the Propaganda Vs Reality of the Citizenship Amendment Act 2019 where Shri. Tejasvi Surya, MP, bangalore South and Honourable Justice Shri. Subhash B Adi, Former Judge, High court of Karnataka were the chief guests. The programme was presided by Shri Abdul Azeem, Chairman, Karnataka Minority Commission.
Tejasvi Surya in his speech said “There has been no need for the protests against CAA as it does not affect any citizen of the country. Fringe elements are being opportunistic to create confusion among citizens and defame the government”. He also said that “As on date the government has taken a stand to help the minorities of 6 religions namely Hindus, Christians, Jains, Buddhists, Sikhs and Parsis who are being persecuted in the 3 countries of Afghanisthan, Pakisthan and Bangladesh. This has nothing to do with Muslims who are in India. This is same as what Rajiv Gandhi did for Tamilians in Srilanka and Indira Gandhi did for Gujaratis in the Uganda. We have currently decided to do it for these 3 countries and tomorrow if we want to change it for other countries, we may do it too.”
Abdul Azeen in this talk mentioned that there is no issue for the muslim citizens of india to worry. CAA should not be confused with NRC and NRC also has not been implemented yet and even if it is implemented, then there should be no problem because there will be one or the other document everyone will have that can be submitted. Only fear mongers are using the situation to create confusion in the public.
