Whoever opposes CAA will get answer in the form of ‘surgical strike’: CT Ravi

Bengaluru: In a retort to AIMIM Chief Asasuddin Owaisi’s statement opposing Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA), BJP National General Secretary C.T. Ravi said on Tuesday that whoever opposes the CAA would be given a befitting reply on the lines of surgical strike.

India has been giving citizenship to those who are targeted and persecuted for their religious identity. Whoever comes here with “jihadi agenda” stands no chance. Whoever opposes this would be given a befitting answer on the lines of “surgical strike,” IANS reported him as saying.

Earlier, AIMIM Chief Asaduddin Owaisi had issued a statement that if the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) is not repealed, he would turn the streets of Uttar Pradesh into Shaheen Bagh.

CAA provides citizenship to people belonging to Hindu, Jain, Buddhist, Christian people who are subjected to religious persecution. Owaisi is demanding granting of citizenship to Muslims as well. There are declared Islamic nations in the world. If he wanted citizenship for all, all Islamic nations should declare that they are secular countries, Ravi explained.

“Owaisi does not have faith in democracy. Those who do not believe in the constitution talk about bloodshed. India is prepared to contain people like Jinnah, Kasab and Bin laden,” IANS quoted Ravi as saying.

They call non-Muslims kafirs and commit atrocities on them. When the dream of Akhand Bharat (India including Pakistan, Bangladesh, Afghanistan and other countries) is realized, everyone will get citizenship, he said.

The ruling BJP government at the Centre sees people of all faiths equally. There is an opportunity for citizenship to those that have faith in the constitution and ballot, he said.

Where is the concept of one religion, Ravi questioned, referring to Mahatma Gandhi’s ‘Ishwar Allah tero naam’. But, is there any example of uttering these lines in any of the mosques, he questioned.

Reacting to ISIS online magazine publishing a beheaded Shiva statue, Ravi explained that, Islam is still in the same way since its inception. Nalanda and Takshashila were educational centers for the whole world. Due to intolerance, they were destroyed, they also destroyed Ayodhya and Mathura. “We maintain and practice that all religions are one and the same,” he elaborated.
