Mumbai: The Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA), National Register of Citizens (NRC) and National Population Register (NPR) are part of the Narendra Modi government's communal agenda to transform India into a Hindu-nation, President of Jamiat Ulema Arshad Madani said Thursday.

"CAA-NRC-NPR are part of a larger communal agenda to isolate and alienate Muslims, and make India a Hindu nation. They want to polarise the society," Arshad Madani, the President of the largest organisation of Indian Muslims, told a news conference in Mumbai.

"When the Constitution guarantees equal rights to all citizen, irrespective of his/her religion caste, language, region, the agenda behind the CAA-NRC-NPR is very clear", he said, adding that Jamiat Ulema e Hind does not support any specific political party but is compelled to raise this issue as it endangers the unity and integrity of India.

"In the last two to three months, clearly there is a communal turmoil," he added.

The Jamiat Ulema e Hind is holding its four-day long executive committee meeting, during which wide ranging religious, social and political issues will be discussed.

The Jamiat Ulema e Hind would end the four-day session with a mega rally in Mumbai.

The Jamiat's Mumbai meeting is being held at the backdrop of the Yogi Adityanath-led BJP government in Uttar Pradesh disallowing the century-old Muslim organisation to hold anti NRC-NPR rally.

“We will work hard to neutralise the poison of NPR-NRC and preserve the secular nature of the country. Hindus and Muslims will continue to co-exist peacefully. We will not hesitate to sacrifice in the same way we sacrificed in the war for independence,” he said.

“We were born in India, and we will not leave India even if someone tries to scare us. We do not discriminate between people. We are all Indians. Jamiat is always ready to fulfil its duty,” Madani said.

“CAA has become a law and NRC is against the soul of the Constitution. There will be a day when NRC will be imposed and it will be doomsday for Muslims. Take Assam, Hindus that were left out in NRC will be given citizenship under CAA but Muslims will not be entertained", he said.

"Whatever happened to Muslims in Myanmar, will happen to Muslims of Assam, ” he said adding that most of the Opposition parties are opposing the NRC-NPR and it is not without a reason.
