No Muslim born in Tamil Nadu will be affected by the NPR, says the prime minister
MADURAI: No Muslim born in would be affected by the National Population Registry ( NPR ), said chief minister on Sunday. Like a fortress, the AIADMK government would continue to protect the rights and interests of Muslim s, he said.
Residents were free to omit three questions in the NPR, including one regarding the birthplaces of their parents, and no records need to be submitted, he said.
He affirmed it in two events: in Ramanathapuram and Virudhungar. He laid the foundations of government medical universities in both places.
Palaniswami asked Muslim women to give up their protests and extend their support to the state government.
He said: “Tamil Nadu is a garden of peace, where people of all faiths and castes live in harmony. The government works on the basis of secularism and continues to protect minority sections, ”he said.
“I said the same thing in the assembly. But in recent times, some people, who could not tolerate this, were spreading rumors with a malicious intention of making political gains, he said.
The people of Tamil Nadu must remain united and should not pay attention to the false information that is disseminated by the divisive forces, he added.
