Superstar Rajinikanth has defended the Modi govt over the controversial citizenship law saying it will not affect Muslims.
“Citizenship Amendment Act will not affect any citizen of our country. If it affects Muslims, then I will be the first person to stand up for them,” Rajinikanth said on Wednesday.
Rajinikanth also spoke in favour of the population register as he called NPR a necessity. “NPR is a necessity to find out about the outsiders. It has been clarified that NRC has not been formulated yet,” Rajinikanth said.
Rajinikanth had earlier expressed concern over violence in various parts of the country over the Citizenship (Amendment) Act, saying violence and rioting cannot be a way to find solution to any issue.
“Violence and rioting should not become a way to find solution for any issue. I request the people of India to stay united and vigilant keeping in mind the nation’s security and welfare,” Rajinikanth had said.
