Rajinikanth backs Modi govt on CAA

Superstar Rajinikanth has backed the controversial citizenship law saying it will not affect Muslims while demanding dual citizenship for Lankan Tamil refugees.

Citizenship Amendment Act will not affect any citizen of our country. If it affects Muslims, then I will be the first person to stand up for them, Rajinikanth said on Wednesday.

Rajinikanth also spoke in favour of the population register as he called NPR a necessity. NPR is a necessity to find out about the outsiders. It has been clarified that NRC has not been formulated yet, Rajinikanth said.

Rajinikanth had earlier expressed concern over violence over the citizenship law. He had said violence could not be a way to find solution to an issue.
