New citizenship law is not against Muslims, Opposition is distorting facts, says PM Modi

At a rally in New Delhi on Sunday, Prime Minister Narendra Modi rejected the accusations imposed on him that his government’s new citizenship law was against Muslims.

PM Modi said, “The law does not impact 1.3 billion Indians, and I must assure Muslim citizens of India that this law will not change anything for them”, adding that his government never indulges in religious bias.

“We have never questioned anyone if they go to a temple or a mosque when it comes to implementing welfare schemes”, said the PM.

The Prime Minister said, the opposition parties, mentioning Congress, in particular, were distorting the facts on the citizenship law and conspiring to weaken his government not only in Delhi but other parts of India also, creating fear in the people.

Modi said, “They are trying every tactic to push me out of power”, urging the protestors not to resort to violence.

Fresh demonstrations were planned for Sunday in New Delhi and the northern state of Uttar Pradesh, where most of the deaths have occurred.
