Violence over CAA “deeply distressing”, PM Modi breaks silence

“It is my appeal to everyone to stay away from any sort of rumour-mongering and falsehoods,” Prime Minister Narendra Modi wrote.


New Delhi| Prime Minister Narendra Modi has finally broken his silence over the protests against Citizenship Amendment Act. Violence engulfed South Delhi on Sunday as protesting students of Jamia Milia University clashed with the Delhi Police. In a series of chaos that followed, three buses were torched and public property was damaged. In retaliation, Delhi Police stormed into the Jamia Campus and allegedly attacked the students. Students claim that police personnel beat them mercilessly and also used tear gas.

Several students and police have been injured in the violent altercation. Following the news of students being attacked, students from various educational institutes across the country hit the street to protest.

PM Modi commenting on the violent protests said that it was unfortunate and “Deeply Disturbing”. “Debate, discussion and dissent are essential parts of democracy but, never has damage to public property and disturbance of normal life been a part of our ethos,” he tweeted.

Defending the Citizenship Amendment Bill passed in both the houses of parliament, PM Modi said, “Large number of political parties and MPs supported its passage.” “This Act illustrates India’s centuries-old culture of acceptance, harmony, compassion and brotherhood,” he added.

He also assured that CAA does not affect any citizen of India of any religion. “We cannot allow vested interest groups to divide us and create a disturbance,” he said.

In the last tweet, he appealed that this is the time to maintain peace, unity and brotherhood. “It is my appeal to everyone to stay away from any sort of rumour-mongering and falsehoods,” He wrote.
