Bengaluru, Union Home Minister Amit Shah on Saturday asked Congress leader Rahul Gandhi to read the entire law, calling those opposing the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) as anti-Dalit. He challenged Rahul to prove that the CAA would take away citizenship from Indian Muslims.
Accused of trying to spread confusion on Rahul Gandhi
Addressing a public meeting in Hubli under the BJP’s nationwide ‘Jan Jagaran Abhiyan’, Shah said that there is no provision in the CAA that snatches citizenship from Muslims. He accused Rahul Gandhi of trying to create confusion, saying that if he finds something in the law that snatches the citizenship of Indian Muslims, then Prahlada Joshi (Parliamentary Affairs Minister) is ready to argue with him. He also accused the Congress as well as the Left parties, Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, JDS, BSP and SP of doing politics on the CAA for vote bank.
At the Vedanta Bharati Vivek Dipini Mahasamarpane program, Shah said that Prime Minister Narendra Modi is touring the whole world as he is the flag bearer of Indian culture and tradition. Confirming his point, he said that before taking the oath, Prime Minister Modi took a dip in the Ganges in Varanasi and took part in the Ganga Aarti. For the first time, Modi sent Lal Chandan to the Pashupatinath temple in Nepal for special worship on behalf of the Government of India.
He said that the erstwhile governments misinterpreted secularism due to which they could not respect the best things in the country. But after a long hiatus, we have found a Prime Minister who has given the message that we have a lot to offer to the world. In the program, Amit Shah thanked Vedanta Bharti for trying to get the children exposed to the Vedas and the writings of Adi Shankaracharya and called upon the students to always follow the right path in life.
