Delhi in recent times had a worse phase where it had to see a whole lot of devastating things coming from two separate communities. A protest in the nation’s capital for and against the controversial citizenship bill took the lives of nearly 42 and injured more than 200 people. As the situation looks to calm down, South star Rajnikanth has stepped up to offer support to help peace return.
Rajnikanth meets Muslim community in Tamil Nadu
The actor who has turned into a politician recently has said that he is ready to play a crucial role to maintain peace in the country. The 69-year-old on Sunday met leaders from the Muslim community and he has assured to offer support in peacekeeping.
“We talked about our opinion and we told him our concerns and why Muslims are opposing CAA. We informed him that people are in fear and he extended his support to guarantee that peace returns,” said a representative of the Tamil Nadu Jamatul Ulama Sabai.
Offered full support
After the meeting, Rajnikanth made the comments on Twitter saying, Today I met members from Tamil Nadu Jamatul Ulama Sabai organization and I was extremely happy to hear their point of view. It is totally agreed that a country’s prime objective should be love, unity, and peace. I welcome their statement. am willing to play any role to keep peace in the country.
The Muslim community decided to meet the actor as they felt he was conscious of the impact of CAA, NPR, and NRC. The top leaders of the Muslim community said the actor received them well and spoke to them for more than an hour. They spoke to the actor about their matters and explained to him the issue.
Previously the actor had said that the CAA will not harm our Indian Muslims and had asked those protesting not to fall for the “false announcement” of politicians who have their own interests. He also assured that he would be the first person to step up in the protest if even one Indian Muslim was affected by the CAA.
Amid protest, last week, Rajinikanth had hit out at the Modi government over the clashes in Delhi, saying the riots should have been dealt with an “iron fist”. In a sharp attack on the BJP-led Centre, he asked those in power to “resign and go” if the violence could not be crushed.
“It is a governance failure and therefore home ministry also failed. Protests can take place harmoniously but not in a violent manner. If violence breaks out, it should be handled equally,” the actor had said.
