CAA Not Anti-Muslim, Defends Implementation: Amit Shah

Union Home Minister Amit Shah defended the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA), stating it’s not against Muslims but aims to provide citizenship to persecuted non-Muslim migrants. He accused the Opposition of spreading “politics of lies” regarding the law.

Opposition Criticism and Shah’s Response

Shah addressed criticism from the Opposition, emphasizing that CAA doesn’t violate the Constitution and aims to protect persecuted minorities from neighboring countries. He dismissed talks of repealing the law, asserting it’s impossible due to BJP’s commitment to its implementation.

Timing and Implementation

Regarding timing, Shah clarified that CAA’s inclusion in BJP’s manifesto and its passage in Parliament were well-established before the pandemic delayed its implementation. He accused the Opposition of playing appeasement politics instead of prioritizing national interests.

Historical Context and Minority Rights

Shah highlighted the historical context of CAA, citing the country’s partition and the persecution faced by minorities in neighboring nations. He criticized Mamata Banerjee for spreading misinformation and urged her to refrain from harming Bengali Hindus.

Challenging Opposition Claims

In response to allegations of minority citizenship being revoked, Shah challenged critics to point out any clause in CAA supporting such claims. He accused opposition leaders of divisive politics and affirmed BJP’s commitment to protecting persecuted minorities.
