Questions over CAA Protest
Addressing the situation in the country over the Citizenship Amendment Act, the PM said that today every countryman holds a question.
He pointed out that people who have come from Pakistan to save their lives, to save the lives of their daughters, protest are being taken out against them, but why are they not saying anything on Pakistan who did this to them?
“Pakistan was formed based on religion, religious minorities were being abused there. The persecuted were forced to come to India as refugees. But Congress and its allies don’t speak against Pakistan, instead, they are taking out rallies against these refugees.”
Modi took up a strong hold over people talking against the Parliament of India today. He said there was a need to expose the action of Pakistan at the international level. And suggested supporting voice against the crimes conducted by Pakistan in the last 70 years.
“If you have to raise slogans, then raise slogans against the atrocities on minorities in Pakistan. We can’t leave minorities from Pakistan to their fate; have a responsibility to protect them, says Modi in Karnataka while defending CAA. Congress, its allies and ecosystem created by them are standing against India’s Parliament.”
