Worried about Indian Muslims, not Pakistani Hindus: Arvind Kejriwal

A video clip of Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal is going viral on social media for all the wrong reasons. The clip is from an interview with television news channel Times Now.

When the anchor asked Kejriwal whether the condition of Hindus and other persecuted minorities in Pakistan is of no consequence to him, he replied that he’s more worried about the condition of Hindus and minorities, including Muslims, living in Delhi.

“The condition of millions of Hindus, Christians, Sikhs, Jains and Muslims living in Delhi is my problem. You’re concerned about the problems of Pakistanis but what about Indians?” he argued.

“The government is unable to address the issues of employment and economy hence they popped up this Citizenship Amendment Bill to distract people,” he surmised.

CAA is aimed to give citizenship to persecuted minorities -- Hindus, Sikhs, Christians, Jains, Buddhists and Parsis -- of Pakistan, Bangladesh and Afghanistan.
