Prime Minister Narendra Modi during Budget session in the Lok Sabha on Thursday assured that no Indian's citizenship would be affected due to the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA), including Muslims.
"I want to clarify it to my 130 crore Indians. The CAA will not have any effect on any religious community -- be it Hindu, Muslim, Sikhs or Christians," he said.
PM Modi accused the Congress was spreading misinformation about the CAA. He also targeted Pakistan for trying to influence India's Muslims.
Attacking the Congress and other Opposition parties, the PM said they wanted to divide India in the name of religion. He said people who had been removed from office by the people of India were now doing the unthinkable. "They see citizens based on their faith. We are different. We see everyone as an Indian," the PM said.
