New Delhi, December 18, 2019: Union Home Minister Amit Shah said there was no need to fear the National Register of Citizens (NRC). Special arrangements will be made for the Muslims.

Shah has tweeted that the government will make special arrangements for the minority community. Indian citizens of any religion need not fear the NRC. No NRC can exclude an Indian citizen from the country.

According to Home Ministry sources, in the next few days, the ministry may announce special arrangements for minorities, especially Muslims.

Amit Shah has tweeted that “I re-clarify that no citizen of any religion needs to be scared of NRC. No one can exclude you. Special arrangements will be made because the opposition has spread fear in them. But intruders will have to leave the country. ”

The statement came from Home Minister Amit Shah when Muslims are protesting against the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) in many places across the country. There has been violence in Delhi during the protests.

Commenting on the ongoing protests on the Citizenship (Amendment) Act, Shah had earlier said that people are being misled on the issue by vested political interests and reiterated his promise that not a single minority citizen of India will lose his/her citizenship.
Shah said that as legislation, the CAA is meant to enable and empower stateless refugees, and is not meant to deprive any Indian citizen. Shah also remarked that giving citizenship to refugees was part of the Nehru Liaqat pact, which was being implemented after 70 years under the leadership of Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi. He emphasized that people against the Amendment may oppose it as much as possible, Modi Government is committed to giving citizenship and dignified life to refugees persecuted for the last 70 years.

Few days back, PM Modi had said, “I want to unequivocally assure my fellow Indians that CAA does not affect any citizen of India of any religion. No Indian has anything to worry regarding this Act. This Act is only for those who have faced years of persecution outside and have no other place to go except India. The Citizenship Amendment Act, 2019 was passed by both Houses of Parliament with overwhelming support. Large number of political parties and MPs supported its passage. This Act illustrates India’s centuries old culture of acceptance, harmony, compassion and brotherhood.”
