A disputed statement by AIMIM national spokesperson Waris Pathan at a rally in Gulbarga, Karnataka has created a ruckus. Meanwhile, a strong statement by actress Swara Bhaskar, who has been vocal and opposed to the Citizenship Amendment Act has come out. Swara tweeted and said, “Sit down, Chacha, if you cannot say something helpful don’t say it at all! Stupid, irresponsible and highly condemnable statement!!!” Swara instructed Waris saying that his statement will only harm the movement against CAA-NRC.
AIMIM leader Waris Pathan had said in Gulbarga rally, “We have learned to answer the stone by brick. But we have to walk together. Freedom has to be taken and We will take it. We are being told that we have sent our mother and sisters forward. We say that just now the lionesses have come out, then you are fearing. If we all come together, then think about what will happen. We are 15 crores heavy on 100 crore people. Remember this thing.”

Pathan further addressed the people in Gulbarga and said, “We will shoot on the chest, but will not show the paper. Those who are protesting against the CAA have come out to save the constitution of this country. They have come out to save the democracy of this country and they have come out to save the secularism of this country.”
