BSP supremo Mayawati gave a statement on granting citizenship of India to Pakistan-origin singer Adnan Sami. He said that when the central government can honor Adnan Sami with citizenship and Padma Shri, then why can’t the rest of the Muslims in India be sheltered in India?
He has again asked the Central Government to consider the Citizenship Amendment Act. Let us know what questions are being raised on the central government on granting citizenship to Adnan Sami.
Actually, the political tirade has started after the announcement of Adnan Sami to be conferred the Padma Shri. The Congress has described it as an insult to 130 crore Indians while the NCP has benefited from the gluttony of the Modi government. At the same time, the BJP has retaliated in this case, raising questions on the citizenship of Congress President Sonia Gandhi.
Congress spokesperson Jayveer Shergill says on twitter that, “Jambaz Sanaullah of Kargil war was declared as an intruder, while Sami is being given Padma Samman whose father was in the Pakistani Air Force shelling against India?” Significantly, Sami’s father was a Pakistani airman and fought against India in 1965.
MNS has also opposed giving Padma Shri to Sami. Meanwhile, senior Congress leader Digvijay Singh expressed happiness over awarding Padma Shri to Sami.
