Buddhist monk – Arunjyoti Viku said, “Modi government is tactically isolating the Muslim community by including other communities with the Hindus. But we don’t want to be with them only, it is not Indian spirit. Irrespective of caste and creed, we want to live with each other- we are all brothers.” Sikh leader, Bachchan Singh Saral said that “Avoiding one community in the Citizenship Act is nothing but a move to divide Indians.” The press meet was also addressed by Partho Sengupto, Secretary Bishhokos Parisad.
