'Why not include Muslims', BJP's CK Bose askstext_fields
New Delhi: BJP West Bengal vice president Chandra Kumar Bose came out against the party stand in the Act saying India is a country "open to all religions and communities".
"Don't equate India or compare it with any other nation - as it's a nation Open to all religions and communities," he said in another tweet.
The comment by the grandnephew of Subhash Chandra Bose , respected Indian freedom fighter, has left BJP leadership in quandary.
It came when BJP launched a massive public awareness campaign on social media to reach out to the Muslim community and dispel their doubts on the issue.
Earlier, BJP-ally Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) had demanded that Muslims should also be included in the CAA in sync with the democratic and secular principles of the country, ANI reported.
