Over 20 Muslim bodies petitioned TN govt over CAA


Over 20 Muslim organisations and outfits on Thursday petitioned the Tamil Nadu government to urge the Centre to withdraw the controversial Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA).

Representatives of 23 organisations, accompanied by AIADMK leader and state Labour Minister Nilofer Kafeel and opposition IUML legislator KAM Muhammed Abubacker, met Deputy Chief Minister O Panneerselvam in this connection.

A brief release from the deputy CM’s office said the representatives submitted a memorandum to Panneerselvam on “cancelling” the CAA.

The meeting comes amidst stiff opposition to the amended Citizenship Act, with scores of protests being held so far, including by the Opposition DMK.
