Rampur: Union Minorities Affairs Minister Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi on Sunday accused the opposition parties for not standing with victims of religious persecution.
“We had expected that all the political parties will stand with the victims of religious persecution. Instead, they are standing with those who committed atrocities on minorities,” Naqvi said.
“Some parties are trying to churn out political benefits from the controversy over Citizenship Amendment Act. Congress and their friends, with their disastrous thinking and are creating an environment of fear and misinformation,” he added.
Naqvi was speaking after kicking of awareness campaign on CAA in Rampur.
“CAA was brought to give respect and justice to the persecuted minorities from three neighbouring countries,” he said.
