The passage of the Citizenship Amendment Bill in both the Houses of Parliament has created commotion in the entire country. Opposition parties and students from universities across the country are protesting against the Act. The incidents of public property being destroyed and people being shot by cops have rocked the country.
Meanwhile to counter the protests the Narendra Modi-led BJP has released an awareness video on Citizenship Amendment Bill (CAA) and National Register of Citizen (NRC).
The video urges the protesters to stay away from the rumours relating to CAA and NRC and instead read and get informed about the Act which seeks to grants citizenship for Hindu, Sikh, Parsi, Jain, Buddhist and Christian immigrants from Pakistan, Afghanistan and Bangladesh.
Earlier, the BJP released an animated conversation between two people who wear a sherwani-like outfit and have beards. One of them asks questions about CAA and NRC, while the other answers the queries.
"This is an appeal to all the Muslim brothers and sisters of the country to first understand the Citizenship Amendment Act itself and then explain it to others. Otherwise, political parties that lie and spread confusion will make us fight among ourselves for the sake of their vote bank," the party captioned the video.
The animated video was heavily trolled on Twitter. One user said that the party couldn't even find two Muslims.
