Muslims have 150 countries to live, Hindus have only 1: Vijay Rupani
Ahmedabad : Addressing a rally in support of the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA), Gujarat Chief Minister Vijay Rupani said that Muslims have 150 countries to get the citizenship while Hindus have only one.
Around 62 rallies were carried out by the Bharatiya Janata Party on Tuesday in Gujarat to show their support for the CAA. While Vijay Rupani led one in Sabarmati Ashram, Deputy Chief Minister Nitin Patel led one in Mehsana.
Addressing a huge crowd, Rupani said, “Muslims in India were happy and their population rose from 9 per cent to 14 per cent...because of the secular Constitution they live a dignified life in India.”
He also mentioned that the percentage of Hindus in Pakistan declined from 22 to just 3 because they were being tortured, raped and their properties were getting destroyed. They all moved to India and became a refugee and since a long time have been living a life with no amenities that a citizen of India enjoys. In Bangladesh, Hindus constitute just 2 per cent of the population, while in Afghanistan, the number of Hindus and Sikhs are around 500, (down) from over 2 lakh earlier.
"Muslims have 150 countries where they can live, but for Hindus, there is only one country, and that is Bharat."
Targeting the Oppositions, who have been protesting against the CAA, he said, "The Congress and its allies are creating unrest in the country by misleading people, rioting and destroying public property. I want to ask the Congress: how is the CAA against what Mahatma Gandhi said when the country was being divided... that Hindus from these three countries if they wish to come back..."
Meanwhile, he reassured that not a single Muslim living in India would be losing his/her citizenship because of CAA.
