Chennai: Superstar Rajinikanth on Wednesday threw his weight behind the contentious Citizenship Amendment Act and asserted that the legislation did not pose any threat to Muslims.

In his first reaction after the amendment to the Citizenship Act and nationwide protests against it, the top actor wondered as to how Muslims, who chose to stay back in India following partition will be sent out of the country.

“CAA is no threat to Muslims, if they face trouble I will be the first person to raise voice for them,” he told reporters here.

Besides, the central government has assured that Indian people will have no issues in view of the Citizenship Amendment Act, he noted.

Alleging that some political parties were instigating people against CAA for their selfish interests, he also blamed religious leaders for supporting protests against the law and dubbed it “very wrong.”

Backing the National Population Register exercise, he said the drive is “very, very essential,” and added that the Congress-led government had done it in the past.
