CAA, NRC not against Muslims: Ajmer dargah dewan
AJMER: Ajmer dargah dewan Sayed Zannual Hussain Chisti on Thursday said that Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) and The National Register of Citizens (NRC) are not against Muslims. However, he demanded to constitute a high-powered committee to look into the CAA issue and added that till then it should not be implemented. Chisti said, the government has the right to frame law and people have to respect it. “India is the biggest democracy in the world. In any democracy, respect of majority is the same as respect of Constitution. But it is also the duty of government to respect the feelings of people and should not bring any law which hurts the sentiments of people and hurt the unity, harmony and social feelings.” Chisti said the Centre brought the CAA which is not at all against of Muslims. “Muslims residing in India should not be scared of this Law and it will not against the citizenship of any Indian Muslim. The Centre should constitute a high-powered committee which will visit the whole country and prepare a factual report. Then, the government should table the bill on the basis of the report. Till then, the government should not implement the Act.” He added that if mercy and help are based on religion, then this world will no longer exist. He condemned the incident of Jamia Islamia University of New Delhi and appeal that there should be guidelines for the police. They should not use power in any educational institute and should not deal with students like they are terrorists and criminals. He also appealed to the student of Jamia University that they should not take law into their own hands in any circumstances. He also appealed to maintain peace in the country.
