Actress Swara Bhasker gives befitting reply to troll
Recently, a troll asked her, “6 months hogaye desh me CAA lagu hoke.. can you tell us how many ppl lost there citizenship?? How many ppl are sent in detention centre? “.
Replying to the troller, the actress wrote, “Jab tak NRC nahi laagoo hota (via NPR data), amendments in CAA have no real impact on Indian citizens (despite the fact that the amendments themselves are v problematic).. CAA/ NRC/ NPR are all linked. Use your brains for more than trolling!”
What is CAA?
Citizenship Amendment Act, 2019 gives citizenship to Hindus, Sikhs, Buddhists, Jains, Parsis and Christians from Afghanistan, Bangladesh and Pakistan who have entered India before 31st December 2014.
Although CAA does not take away the citizenship of any person, many experts see it along with NRC. They claim that the CAA-NRC combo is a deadly weapon.
