Shia Waqf Board for implementation of CAA and NRC

Friday, 27 December 2019 | PNS | Lucknow

Throwing its weight behind the Union government, Uttar Pradesh Shia Central Waqf Board (UPSCWB) on Thursday reiterated its demand for immediate implementation of Citizenship (Amendment) Act and National Register of Citizens in the country so that infiltrators could be flushed out.
“Political parties like Congress, All-India Trinamool Congress and even Samajwadi Party are instigating demonstrators and supporting arson as Muslim infiltrators from Pakistan, Bangladesh and Afghanistan are their supporters. They fear that if the NRC is implemented, their vote bank will be depleted as these people will be thrown out,” UPSCWB chairman Waseem Rizvi said in a statement released in Lucknow on Thursday.
Rizvi said that there was no threat from the NRC to Indians, including Muslims, who belong to India and thus it should be implemented.
“The CAA and the NRC are being opposed only by those people who support infiltrators because of political reasons,” he said.
Rizvi further said that Hindus or members of other communities, except Muslims, who were being persecuted in Pakistan, Afghanistan and Bangladesh due to being minority could get citizenship in India.
The Shia Waqf Board chairman further alleged that the involvement of anti-national outfits like PFI (Popular Front of India) and SIMI (Students’ Islamic Movement of India) in the violence in UP and other parts of the country showed the real motive behind these protests and how these outfits wanted to create disturbances in the country.
