Superstar Rajinikanth’s big statement has come amid protests against the Citizenship Amendment Act.
Film actor and superstar Rajinikanth on Wednesday endorsed the amended Citizenship Act (CAA) and said there is no threat to Muslims by this law. At the same time, Rajinikanth supported NPR and said that the National Population Register is very important.
In his first reaction after amending the citizenship law and nationwide protests against it, Rajinikanth told reporters that, “There is no threat to Muslims from the CAA. If they face any problem, I will be the first person to raise their voice for them.”
Actor Rajinikanth, 69, said that the central government has assured that the Indian people would not face any trouble with the CAA. He alleged that some political parties are inciting people against the CAA for their selfish interests. He blamed religious leaders for supporting the protests against this law and described it as ‘quite wrong’.
Rajinikanth also said that the Central Government has assured that no Indian will face any problem with the Citizenship Amendment Act. He wondered how the Muslims could be driven out of the country, who themselves chose to live in India during partition.
Supporting the National Register of Citizens, he said that this campaign was ‘very, very important’ and the Congress-led government had done so in the past. There is a lot of opposition in different parts of the country on the Citizenship Amendment Act. However, the government has clarified that this law is not going to be withdrawn at any cost. Thus it is to be seen as what the fans of the Tamil superstar react.
