‘We cannot allow vested interest groups to divide us and create disturbance,’ PM Modi appeals for peace amidst violence

The Prime Minister also said that it was deeply distressing to see violent protests and that damaging public property and disturbance of normal life has never been a part of our ethos as a country.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi appealed for peace and harmony in wake of the violence perpetrated by Muslim mobs across the country after the passage of the Citizenship Amendment Act. He requested everyone to refrain from any sort of rumour-mongering and falsehoods. The statement comes a day after the Police entered Jamia Milia Islamia University to flush out violent ‘protesters’.

The Prime Minister assured the citizens of the country that no Indian citizen had anything to fear from the Citizenship Amendment Act. He 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.”

PM Modi also said that vested interests were at work to create instability in the country. He stated, “The need of the hour is for all of us to work together for the development of India and the empowerment of every Indian, especially the poor, downtrodden and marginalised. We cannot allow vested interest groups to divide us and create disturbance.”
