The Nankana Sahib incident justifies CAA: BJP

NEW DELHI: Condemning the attack on Gurudwara in Pakistan, the BJP said Saturday that the incident justifies the amendments made to citizenship law to protect minorities in three neighboring countries.

Addressing a conference here, the BJP leader said that minorities in Pakistan have been subject to threats of civil conversion, rape and violence for decades and the Nankana incident shows how minorities are persecuted and why they need citizenship in the India.

Lekhi also said that this incident should open the eyes of Congress leaders like Sonia Gandhi, Rahul Gandhi & Navjot Singh Sidhu , Supreme TMC Mamata Banerjee , the leftists & the "urban Naxals" who have been opposing the amended Citizenship Act.
