Defence Minister Rajnath Singh on Wednesday assured the Muslim community that “no one can touch” them and let alone taking away their citizenship.
“I want to tell my Muslim brothers; it is up to you to decide whether to vote for us or not, but please do not doubt our intentions. No one can touch you. Let alone taking away your citizenship,” he said while addressing a gathering.
His statement comes in the wake of controversy over the recent Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) and the NRC.
He also stated that those found guilty in the 1984 anti-Sikh riots will be punished.
“We formed a Special Investigation Team (SIT) to probe the 1984 Sikh riots case. Those who are found guilty in the case would be punished,” said Singh, while addressing a rally.
