Singer Adnan Sami has slammed veteran actor Raza Murad over the latter’s comments on the controversial Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA). He shared a news clip of the senior actor to make his point.

Sharing the video, Adnan wrote “I thought that this guy was a villain & talked crap only in movies!” followed by emojis. In the video, when asked about his comments on the CAA, Raza Murad says: “See, I don’t have any objection to the law. Our Constitution gives equal rights to all citizens, thanks to Dr Bhimrao Ambedkar.”


“What I mean to say is that this is against the spirit of the Constitution. You cannot discriminate someone based on their religion or caste. All I am saying is if you wish to make a law, please go ahead. However, if you say the benefits of the law will go to non Muslims--Hindus, Parsis, Christians, Buddhists, Jains--and you keep Muslims aside... you should say that whoever is deserving will be considered, whatever be their faith,” he added.

“Did you not give citizenship to Adnan Sami? He is a Muslim, he is man from Pakistan. His father served in the Pakistan Air Force, who even bombarded India during the 1965 War. He was fighting for his country. I don’t have an issue with Adnan Sami being given citizenship -- all I am saying is that it is not correct to segregate one community,” he said. 

It is not clear if Adnan was attacking Raza for his views on CAA or for speaking about his father. Adnan is a supporter of CAA. In early December last year, tweeting about it, he had written: “The #CABBill is 4 religions tht r being persecuted in ‘Theocratic States’. Muslims r NOT persecuted 4 their religion in Pak, Afghanistan or Bangladesh cause they r in majority over thr. Muslims CAN still apply 4 Indian citizenship like b4. All r welcome thru d legal ‘Front Door’!”
