New Delhi: BJP MP Tejasvi Surya said on Wednesday that the majority community has to remain vigilant or else Mughal rule will return to the country.
The MP from Bengaluru South said this in the context of the protests at Shaheen Bagh in the national capital as he slammed the anti-CAA demonstrations.
Surya was participating in the debate on motion of thanks on the President's address in the Lok Sabha.
Pointing to the ongoing protest at Shaheen Bagh against the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA), he said, "Unless the majority community remains vigilant, the days of Mughal Raj may not be far away."
Surya also heaped praise on Prime Minister Narendra Modi for resolving crucial issues which had been pending for several decades.
He added that the CAA was aimed at resolving the issues originating from Partition days and added, "The new India cannot be built without healing the wounds of the past."
Surya said that CAA will give citizenship to persecuted minorities in Pakistan, Bangaladesh and Afghanistan and is not for taking away anyone's citizenship.
Under the leadership of Modi, Surya said, several issues of the past have seen closure. These include abrogation of Article 370, construction of Ram temple, Bodo issue and abolition of Triple Talaq.
