Home Minister Amit Shah while responding to the arguments against Citizenship Amendment Bill (CAB), 2019 took on the Congress by stating that it is so non-communal (secular) that it aligns with Muslim League in Kerala and Shiv Sena and Maharashtra.
Shah also took on Mamata Banerjee’s nephew Abhishek after the latter quoted Rabindranath Tagore, Bankim Chandra Chattopadhay and Swami Vivekananda to oppose the CAB.
Shah in his response questioned that did Tagore envision a Bengal where one has to take the court’s permission for Durga Puja visarjan or is prevented from celebrating Saraswati Puja.
