“It was an idea that was planned to increase the population, establish domination, supremacy and turn this country into Pakistan. It’s back Punjab and Sindh afterward; Assam and Bengali is very important right now. Pakistan did not get what it wanted. It didn’t take Assam, it only took half of Bengal and Punjab… After the Partition, we took care of our minorities even though Pakistan didn’t. ”
Bhagwat defended the controversial Citizenship Amendment Act and said that every country has the right to know who its citizens are. Bhagwat said, not a single Indian Muslim facing problems caused by the CAA and its citizens should unite in taking ‘remedial measures to solve past problems’.
“A large number of people were evicted from their homes during the Partition. Even today, people are kicked out of their homes. What is their fault? Who will take care of them? It is our moral duty to help such people. After independence, India’s first prime minister said minorities would be taken care of. We will continue to do so. Not a single Muslim will be affected by the CAA,” Bhagwat said after the launch of his book on Assamese history and politics.
People in the country have no problem with any religion, language or belief, but “the problem starts when someone tries to impose identification with the intention of dominating. Problems arise when someone claims the rights enshrined in the Constitution but does not follow the obligations,” Bhagwat said. The nation does not have to learn from the world about secularism, socialism and democracy. These values are an intrinsic part of Indian civilization.
“Our vision is for Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam. We don’t have any problems with any region, language or creed. Despite the differences in language and way of life, Indian civilization is interconnected. We reached out to the majority of communities in other countries during a disaster… So if there are some people who want to come to our country due to intimidation and fear, we will definitely have to help them,” Bhagwat said.
“The NRC is just a process to find out who is a true citizen.”
