Superstar Rajinikanth on Wednesday extended his support to the Modi government on the Citizenship (Amendment) Act. He has given an important message to Muslims who are protesting against the law across the country.
Rajinikanth assured Indian Muslims that CAA is no threat to them and termed the National Population Register “essential”.
"NPR is a necessity to find out about the outsiders. It has been clarified that NRC has not been formulated yet," Rajinikanth said.
He also added that if any Muslim faces trouble then he will be the first person to raise his voice for them.

"How will Muslims who chose to stay back in India following Partition be sent out of the country?" he added.
Rajinikanth also urged students to hold protests against the law only after understanding and analyzing it with their professors.
"The government has assured that Indian people will have no issues in respect of CAA. Some political parties are instigating people against CAA for their selfish interests," Rajinikanth said.
The superstar accused some political parties of provoking violence against CAA law for their welfare.
Last year, Rajinikanth had expressed concern over ongoing protests against the citizenship law in various parts of the country, saying violence and rioting cannot be a way to find a solution to any issue.
He also requested citizens of India to stay united and vigilant keeping in mind the nation’s security and welfare, Rajnikant said in a tweet.
