Amit Shah said on Saturday that it will be ensured that nobody is harassed because of their religion, according to Muslim outfit Jamiat Ulema-e-Hind, which met the Union Home Minister here.
Shah assured the delegation that there will be no impact on Kashmiri culture because of the abrogation of the provisions of Article 370 of the Constitution.
Madani told Shah “attempts are being made to harass Muslims in Assam” through NRC exercise in the state, H M’s statement that National Register of Citizens would be updated across the country is being presented as a “threat”.
Shah responded by saying, Nobody should be scared about NRC. Regarding Assam, we have said we will provide free legal aid to the people who have been excluded from the final NRC list.
“As far as implementing NRC across the country is concerned, name me one country where this exercise has not taken place. We will make sure nobody’s citizenship is impacted because of their religion,”
