<pre>80 Muslim BJP leaders quit party membership to protest citizenship law

Indore. In the wake of the ongoing revolt over the revised Citizenship Law (CAA) in the country, around 80 Muslim leaders of the Bharatiya Janata Party have announced to leave the primary membership of the party here. Rajik Qureshi Farsiwala, one of these BJP leaders, gave this information on Friday. He told that about 80 Muslim leaders have left the primary membership of the party by sending a letter to the newly appointed National President of BJP JP Nadda. These include many officials of the BJP's minority front.

Qureshi said, "After the CAA came into existence, it was becoming increasingly difficult for us to attend our community events." At these events people used to curse us by saying that how long will we keep quiet on divisive law like CAA? He said, the genuinely afflicted refugee of any community should get Indian citizenship.

You cannot decide on the basis of religion only that the individual is an intruder or a terrorist. In the letter of Muslim leaders leaving the BJP against CAA, it said, under Article 14 of the Indian Constitution, any Indian citizen has the right to equality. But the work has been done to divide the country by applying the Bharatiya Janata Party-led Central Government's CAA on religious grounds, which is against the basic spirit of the Constitution. Some of them are considered close to the party's national general secretary Kailash Vijayvargiya. When asked about the collective resignation of BJP leaders of minority community, Vijayvargiya said that although I am not aware of this matter, if any person is being misled, we will explain it.
