Union Home Minister Amit Shah in a public meeting in Jabalpur on Sunday said that those involved in raising anti-national slogans should be jailed.
Shah mentioned JNU students of being involved in the anti-national sloganeering and said, “In JNU, some students raised anti-national slogans of ‘Bharat tere tukde ho ek hazar, inshallah, inshallah’. Don’t such students be put behind the bars?”
“Those who raise anti-national slogans should be put behind the bars,” he said.
Amit Shah also launched an attack on the opposition over the Citizenship Amendment Act and asked them to find out any provision in the Act which is meant to take away the citizenship of Indian resident.
“I challenge Mamata Banerjee and Rahul Baba to find out any provision from CAA that can take citizenship away from anyone in this county,” Shah said.
In an attack on the opposition in which he also mentioned Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal, which could be with the view of upcoming Delhi Assembly election, he said, “I don’t know how the language of Rahul Gandhi, Mamata Banerjee, Arvind Kejriwal and Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan has become so similar. The people of Jabalpur needs to think why it is so.”
He also promised that a Ram temple will be constructed in next four months. “Congress leader Kapil Sibal said that Ram Mandir should not be created, Arey Sibal bhai, jitna dam ho rok lo, in four months a temple touching the sky would be constructed within four months.”
Supporting the amendment in the Citizenship Act of giving citizenship to six non-Muslim communities in the country, Shah said, “In India, those Hindu, Sikh, Buddhist, Christian migrants who came from Pakistan have equal rights similar to those who are citizens of India.”
Amit Shah’s remarks came amid Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s two-day visit to Kolkata. A protest broke out by the opposition on PM Modi’s visit who raised slogans like ‘Modi go back’ and opposed his visit by waving black flag.
However, PM Modi met the Bengal chief minister Mamata Banerjee on Saturday during which she asked PM to rethink CAA, NRC, and NPR and also asked to release Rs 38000 crore dues for the state.
