CAA is fundamentally anti-national: Shashi Tharoor

Member of Parliament - Shashi Tharoor

Congress MP Shashi Tharoor on Friday called the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) “fundamentally anti-national”. He said that the law targets a particular minority.

“Any law that is seen targetting any community is fundamentally anti-national. They (Centre) should not proceed with it. I welcome the fact that for two years they have not yet written the rules or implemented the law,” Tharoor said while speaking to Asian News International (ANI).

He further said that the law will “needlessly” divide the country. He urged the government not to “recklessly endanger” the social harmony of the country.

Further, Trinamool Congress (TMC) MP Dola Sen stated that the Centre will have to repeal CAA just like farm laws.

“A union minister in a written reply in the Parliament yesterday said that National Register of Citizens (NRC) will not be implemented throughout India. They have (central government) repealed the three farm laws. We believe they will have to repeal the NRC. The ball is in their court now,” the TMC MP told ANI.


  1. shashi tharoor is now contradicting mahatma gandhi, he thinks he is more secular than gandhi ….i dont think so.
    shashi tharoor is murderer of his wife was saved only due to sonia gandhi

  2. CAA gives justice to those who have been persecuted in Islamic countries due to Islamic fundamentalism. India can not remain 100% secular because it is surrounded by Islamic countries. Hence CAA is not anti-national. It will give citizenship to few lakh non-muslims. Muslims have no right to oppose CAA.
