While some intellectuals are comforting Muslims saying they don’t have to panic thinking about NRC, some Muslim scholars advice Muslims to be prepared for the National Register of Citizens (NRC).
Noted scholar Maulana Vali Rahmani is of the opinion that Muslims, beforehand, should try to stop the sword of Damocles from falling on the heads. He said census is scheduled in 2021 but conducting it a year before shows that there is something fishy about it.
Supporting his claim Maulana Vali Rahmani cited Home Minister Shah’s statement in which he had told about implementing NRC across the country. Answering a question in Rajya Sabha, Amit Shah had told that the government will ensure that illegal residents will be driven out of the country in the light of international laws.
Maulana Vali Rahmani said Muslims must prepare documents proving their citizenship before the NRC is implemented.
