Bengaluru: Jamat-e-Ahle Sunnat, Karnataka, President Moulana Tanveer Hashmi on Friday asserted that the organisation will file a writ petition in Supreme Court against the implementation of Citizenship Amendment Bill – 2019 through which people have been asked to prove their citizenship.

Speaking at a press conference at the office of Jamat-e-Ahle Sunnat, Karnataka in R T Nagar added that the bill is violation Article 14, 15 and 21 of Indian Constitution.

“The constitution of this country clearly states that the country will not provide citizenship to anybody on religious line. We take pride in calling ourselves as Indians, but this bill is clearly set against Muslims” he noted.

“The Contitution of this country is set on the principles of secularism and democracy. The CAB is threat to our Constitution, and the day this law is implemented in the country, it will be a dark day for the democracy. We condemn this law and we will fight a legal battle against this” he added.

He further stated that not only Muslims but all the secular people of the country condemn the NRC and CAB. “There will be protests against the agenda of Central Government if it continues with such acts and bills. Everyone will come together against the government to condemn such bills” he said.

He called upon all the organisations, clerics, intelluctuals to come together and stand united against the attitude of the government. He also added that this will be another freedom movement in the history of the country wherein they will fight against the fascist forces which are taking the country in a state of lawlessness.

Meerut (UP) (PTI): Bharatiya Janata Yuva Morcha (BJYM) president Tejasvi Surya claimed on Tuesday that the BJP will get more seats in next year's Lok Sabha polls compared to the 2019 general election.

He also said the "double-engine" government led by the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has changed the face of Uttar Pradesh.

Addressing a BJYM convention in Meerut, Surya said, "The BJP will get more seats in the 2024 polls than in 2019 and (Prime Minister Narendra) Modiji will score a hat-trick for a third innings."

The member of Parliament from Bangalore South also alleged that before 2014, when the Modi government came to power, there was a misrule in the country, adding that nine years of the Modi government have proved to be more effective than the 70 previous years. People's welfare is the topmost priority of this government, he said.

Surya said the "double-engine" government has changed the face of Uttar Pradesh, adding that thanks to Prime Minister Modi and Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath, the law-and-order scenario of the state has also improved.

"Double engine" is a term often used by BJP leaders to refer to the saffron party being in power at the Centre as well as in a state.

Surya said under Modi's leadership, India has got respect at the global stage, which is only increasing.

The prime minister is trying to take the country to new heights, he added.
