Issuing apparent threats to 'minority' Muslims for participating in anti-CAA protests, BJP MLA from Karnataka on Friday said that opposing the new Citizenship legislation will not be good for them and that they will have to face the 'repercussions' for being opposed to the law. “It's just a caution for those who are protesting against the CAA (Citizenship Amendment Act). We are 80 per cent and you (Muslims) are 18 per cent. Imagine what will happen if we take charge", news Agency ANI quotes MLA Somashekar Reddy as saying.
The Karnataka lawmaker, who was addressing a gathering in Bellary, did not stop here and went on to add, “Beware of the majority when you live in this country. This is our country. If you want to live here, you will have to, like the Australian Prime Minister said, follow the country's traditions."
He further asked the minority community to go to Pakistan and added that if they want to live in India, they’ll have to live in ‘harmony with Hindus’.
"So, I warn you that CAA and NRC are made by Modi and Amit Shah. If you will go against these acts, it won't be good", the BJP lawmaker continued. "If you will act as enemies, we should also react like enemies," he added.
