Some Muslims creating CAA fear in their community: Bhagwat

Gorakhpur, Jan 29 (IANS): RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat has said that some Muslims were trying to instil fear about the Citizenship (Amendment) Act in their community, adding that there was no need to be afraid of the law.

"Educated and intellectuals among the Muslims in India should come forward and dispel this fear. Both Hindus and Muslims are citizens of the country and there is no reason for them (Muslims) to be afraid of the law," he said during a closed-door meeting of Rashtriya Swayamsewak Sangh activists late Tuesday evening.

The RSS chief also asked its activists to spend a part of their income on social welfare activities.

He said that caste and class divide was a curse for Indian society and efforts be made to ensure equality in the social fabric.

Bhagwat also asked workers to shun arrogance and to get involved in the expansion of the organization.

"The RSS has been surviving on this concept for the past 95 years and we need to follow the same principles. Every individual should be a part of nation-building exercise so that India regains its lost glory," he said.

Bhagwat said that the RSS aim is to set up 'shakha' in every village of the country by 2025, its centenial years. He urged all RSS functionaries to work towards this goal.

    I am sure he knows there is no fear factor as far as CAA is concerned and every Muslim is aware of that.
    There is a fear about NRC among all sections religions.
    CAA is flatly discriminatory not only against Muslims; but also against Tamil Hindus from Srilanka, Christians from Bhutan and so on.

    There is no fear from CAA.
    But, there is discrimination in it on religion lines.
    There is violation of Constitution of our Country.
    There is disrespect to the secular fabric of our country.

    And, the CAA has no logic if they are saying that the oppressed from 3 countries would get Citizenship.
    Because we have many more neighbouring countries. In other countries also there are oppressed people.

    Bhagvat for sure knows very well about the discriminatory nature and illogical idea of CAA that you have highlighted. Still he is trying his best to portray the image of Muslims in the general public that Muslims are protesting just out of ignorance. But he conveniently forgetting that every section and class of people are protesting against CAA; even the hundreds of European Union MPs.
