BJP MP Meenakshi Lekhi said that the attack on Gurdwara Nankana Sahib yesterday in Pakistan proves that the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) is right and timely as the persecution of minorities continues in the Islamic country.
Meenakshi Lekhi said, “Nankana Sahib is of huge symbolic importance because it is the religious shrine of Baba Nanak and is relevant across the globe to all Sikhs. It is the holiest shrine of Sikhism. Baba Nanak was born there. They have even threatened to change the name of Nankana Sahib to Ghulam-e-Mustafa.”
She added, “It is not conducive to the ethos of multi-culturism, mulit-religious societies and secular societies and the human rights that exist in any country. There have been thousands of evidence where young girls have been picked up, forcibly converted and married off to Muslim boys while the police, government and other agencies are part and parcel of the process. ”
The BJP leader stressed that this incident only justifies the necessity of and Act like CAA and the need for its immediate implementation.
