LAHORE: Punjab Governor Chaudhry Muhammad Sarwar on Tuesday said that protest demonstrations against controversial Citizenship Act in India are now turning into a revolution as the Gandhi’s grand grandson Tushaar Gandhi along with Indian Muslims is also protesting against the black law.

Narendra Modi government is following the agenda of extremism and ethnicity in India. Lockdown of Muslims through 170 days of curfew in occupied Kashmir and human rights violations are unethical, unconstitutional and inhuman and the world community should not keep mum over it but help stop Indian atrocities, said the Punjab governor while talking to a 13-member delegation, Punjab Women Development Department Vice-Chairperson Farzana Rauf and others at Governor’s House.

He said that India had become totally unsafe for minority communities because of Narendra Modi having ideology of RSS and his government’s cruel policies. Narendra Modi is also targeting the Muslims through controversial Citizenship Act but in addition to millions of Indian Muslims the Hindus and people belonging to other religions are also now raising voice against Narendra Modi and their protest is intensifying with each passing day.

He said that amendment to the controversial Citizenship Act was sheer violation of basic human right but, unfortunately, United Nations and any other international organisation were not taking notice of it and their silence was also violation of human rights.

More problems will take place in the region if the world did not stop the atrocious and anti-minority policies of Narendra Modi and India will solely be responsible for it, he added. Chaudhry Sarwar emphasised that unity in Pakistan was the need of the hour in view of the India’s aggression and war hysteria.
