Thalapathy Vijay Responds to CAA Notification: ‘It’s Not…’

Thalapathy Vijay, Tamil actor and leader of the Tamilaga Vettri Kazhagam (TVK), criticized the central government for implementing the controversial Citizenship (Amendment) Act, 2019.

Expressing his discontent, Thalapathy Vijay voiced concerns about the CAA 2019, which provides citizenship to undocumented non-Muslim migrants from Pakistan, Bangladesh, and Afghanistan. He emphasized the importance of maintaining social harmony and stated that such laws should not disrupt the unity among all citizens.

Thalapathy Vijay also urged the Tamil Nadu government to prevent the implementation of the law within the state boundaries.

This marks Thalapathy Vijay’s inaugural political stance since the inception of his party. He entered politics on February 2, announcing the formation of the Tamilaga Vetri Kazham.

Meanwhile, Tamil Nadu Chief Minister MK Stalin accused Prime Minister Narendra Modi of attempting to gain political advantage ahead of the Lok Sabha elections by enacting the CAA. Stalin criticized the BJP government for transforming the Citizenship Act from a symbol of humanity to a tool of discrimination, alleging betrayal towards Muslims and Sri Lankan Tamils.

Stalin further claimed that despite opposition from democratic forces like the DMK, the CAA was passed with the support of the BJP-aligned AIADMK. He asserted that the BJP had delayed the implementation of the law to avoid public backlash.
