Amid the ongoing protests against Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) and National Register of Citizens (NRC), Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) leader Jitendra Awhad on Monday attacked Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Union Home Minister Amit Shah. 

While addressing the gathering at Bhiwandi, Jitendra Awhad targeted “people sitting at the throne in Delhi” and alleged that their father was appeasing Britishers when his father was shouting “Inquilaab Zindabad” while embracing death sentence. 

I ask the people sitting at the throne in Delhi, you want the proof of my citizenship? So, listen. When your father was appeasing the Britishers, my father was embracing death sentence while shouting Inquilaab Zindabad (Long Live Revolution,” said Awhad in his aggressive speech. 

The protests against the CAA, NRC are ongoing across the country. In many places, women have gathered in huge number to register their opposition against the new citizenship legislation and NRC. 

Several activists and political analysts have stated that if NRC is implemented in India, the marginalised and Muslim community will be forced to prove its citizenship.

Maharashtra Housing Minister Jitendra Awhad further said that Muslims can tell where their ancestors are buried but Hindus may not be able to tell the place of their ancestors’ last rite. 

I want to ask my Hindu brothers, where did your grandfather’s last rites take place? Muslims can tell where the graveyard is,” Awhad said in a remark which can stir controversy.
