New Delhi: Home Minister Amit Shah stirred yet another controversial statement against JNU students and staff claiming few individuals raised anti-national sloganeering.
Addressing a rally in Madhya Pradesh’s Jabalpur to create awareness about the Citizenship law the Union Home Minister Amit Shah on claimed those who indulge in anti-national sloganeering belongs in jail, Indian Express reports.
When everything else fails, the strategy to falsely accuse never disappoints so is the case in Indian politics.
The BJP party turning a blind eye to the assault by masked goons on Jawaharlal University students continues to accuse the varsity students of inciting violence.
Adding to those accusations, Union Home Minister Shah claimed anti-national sloganeering were raised in Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU).
Shah said: “Some students raised anti-national slogans in JNU saying, ‘Bharat tere tukde ho ek hazaar, Inshallah, Inshallah’. Shouldn’t they be sent to jail? Anybody who raises anti-national slogans belongs in jail.”
Despite the recent mob attack injured as many as 36 teachers, students, staff members, the Home Minister made such remark while the injured members are seeking justice against the violence.
Challenging Opposition parties, Congress leader Rahul Gandhi and West Bengal CM Mamata Banerjee, Shah asked the leaders to find out a provision in the amended Citizenship Act that could snatch citizenship from anyone in this country.
The BJP president also claimed that Rahul Gandhi, Mamata Banerjee, and Arvind Kejriwal were speaking the language of Pakistani Prime Minister.
“I don’t know why Rahul Gandhi, Mamata Banerjee, Arvind Kejriwal speak the same language as Imran Khan. The citizens of Jabalpur should introspect on this,” he said.
The Home Minister failed to explain why Muslims refugees do not have an equal right to Indian citizenship.
“Bharat par jitna adhikaar mera aur apka hai, utna hi adhikaar Pakistan se aaye hue Hindu, Sikh, Buddhist, Christian sharanarthi ka hain (As much as me and the people present in the rally, the Hindus, Sikhs, Buddhists, and Christians who have come to India from Pakistan have an equal right to Indian citizenship),” Shah said.
