Once again South-Indian superstar Rajinikanth has backed Modi government passed the Citizenship Amendment Act 2019 and National Population Register. The veteran actor said that the laws were a ‘necessity’. On Wednesday he said, “It is about giving citizenship to people who have come from neighboring countries.
A big scare has been created that Muslims will be affected. How will it affect Indian Muslims? The Muslims in India decided to stay back here during Partition stating that India is their land and that they will live and die here. How can they be sent out? If something like that happens, I will be the first one to speak out.”
Rajnikanth also went on to say that NPR will help the government identify the outsiders. The Congress had applied the NPR in 2010 and 2015 too but no one had a problem back then. He said that the opposition parties are nstigating innocent students who’ve been let out on teh roads to protest against the CAA, NRC and NPR. “Please do proper research on the subject, ask your parents and professors about this issue and then protest. Otherwise, political leaders will use you. Nobody knows how police will react. If an FIR is lodged, then it will become an issue in your life,” he added. He also clarified that NRC has not been formulated yet.
The ‘Robot 2.0’ star had earlier expressed his concern over the growing unrest in the country during the time of protests. He discouraged those who backed and supported the agitated folks as he condemned the act of violence against Jamia Milia Islamia students. He had also mentioned that violence would never solve any of the issues. Rajinikanth requested the citizens of India to stay vigilant and united to ensure the nation’s security and welfare.
