CAA: Subhas Chandra Bose's Grand Nephew Questions

Recently, BJP working president J.P. Nadda held a rally in West Bengal in support of the Citizenship Law. But right after this, Chandra Kumar Bose, West Bengal BJP vice-president and grand nephew of Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose, took his own government to task over the Citizenship Law. 

Bose tweeted against this law several times and asked the government, “If CAA is not related to any religion, why are we stating Hindu, Sikh, Boudha, Christians, Parsis & Jains only! Why not include Muslims as well? Let’s be transparent.”

In his next tweet, he said, “Don’t equate India or compare it with any other nation, as it’s a nation open to all religions and communities.”

In his third tweet, he wrote, “If Muslims are not being persecuted in their home country, they would not come. So, there’s no harm in including them. However, this is not entirely true. What about Baluch who live in Pakistan and Afghanistan? What about Ahmadiyya in Pakistan?”

After this sharp attack by Chandra Kumar Bose, a BJP supporter asked him if he is connected to the BJP, to which he replied that he is connected only to India.

Bose has raised questions on the Citizenship Law at a time when the BJP, under the leadership of J.P. Nadda, organised a massive rally in support of the controversial law in Kolkata. At the very same time, for a prominent leader of the West Bengal BJP to attack the party in this manner is a matter of shame for the BJP. 

It is important to note here that among the main commanders of Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose’s Azad Hind Fauj (Indian National Army) were Muslims like Mohd Zaman Kiyani and Shahnawaz Khan. Apart from them, thousands of Muslims took part in the struggle for independence by enrolling with the Indian National Army.
