Bengaluru: Amit Malviya, the IT cell head of the BJP has put out a tweet, claiming that the protests in Shaheen Bagh near New Delhi, against the Citizenship Amendment Act for the last several days is sponsored. 

Take a look at the tweet.


In the tweet, people can be heard saying that lady protesters are taking Rs 500 to Rs 700 to participate.  It can also be heard that people are eating biryani and are even making children as young as one year old take part in the protest. It can also be heard people talking about the Congress party’s role in the protests. 

It all began with Amanullah Khan making a speech, claiming that CAA will somehow target and strip the Muslims of their voting rights. 

The area which is making a lot of headlines, is more or less like a slum, with dingy lanes, power cables hanging dangerously across the street. Several journalists have made q beeline to cover the protests, with a view to bring disrepute to the Narendra Modi government. 

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 is 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.
