RJD Rajya Sabha MP Ashfaque Karim’s pants dropped as he addressed an anti-CAA rally.
Bengaluru: RJD Rajya Sabha MP Ashfaque Karim had the embarrassment of his life when he addressed a protest against the CAA in Bihar’s Araria.
While he didn’t hold himself back while throwing his criticisms, the pants he wore too did not hold back! Here is the tweet:
In the video, he can be heard saying, “Everybody knows that the law pertains to people who came to India prior to December 31, 2014, except Muslims. The government, through this law, will grant citizenship to everyone except Muslims from Pakistan, Afghanistan and Bangladesh.”
Protests against the CAA have been taking place for months together now.
The protests have also been going on at Shaheen Bagh near New Delhi.
But these protests are needless as PM Modi and Union home minister have reiterated that CAA doesn’t apply to Indian citizens at all.
Not only at Shaheen Bagh, the protests against the Citizenship Amendment Act across the country have only proved emphatically that the participants have either not read the act fully or have wantonly abstained from reading, with the obvious intention of creating violence and vandalism in the society. Now, you can also add that fact that they are being bribed to take part in the protests.
All that the CAA does is to grant citizenship to persecuted minorities of Pakistan, Afghanistan and Bangladesh who have been residing in India hitherto December 31, 2014. What is essentially a one-time offer to integrate the minorities socially and emotionally with India is being seen as a divisive and communal.
The Act enables around 32000 minority members to become citizens of India.
What is worse is how the anti-CAA protests have taken an anti-Hindu stance.
On Sunday, NCP MLA and Maharashtra minister of Housing Jitendra Awhad said that Muslims know the burial places of their ancestors as they bury them, while Hindus don’t know because they cremate them.
