No document will be asked for in NPR, no one will be marked doubtful: Shah

New Delhi: Union Home Minister Amit Shah Thursday clarified that no citizens would be marked 'doubtful' and no documents would be asked for in NPR. While replying to a remark made by Congress' Kapil Sibal, he also said that if anybody doesn't have any document, he or she would not have to submit that.

Shah vowed to punish those behind the Delhi riots, irrespective of their religion and party. Speaking during a session on Delhi riots in Rajya Sabha, Shah said, "We won't spare anybody, irrespective of whichever party or religion they belong to. We will set an example by punishing the rioters."

Terming Shaheen Bagh "communal", "divisive", BJP Rajya Sabha MP from Rajasthan Vijay Goel Thursday blamed the protests there for the riots in Delhi. While speaking in the Rajya Sabha, Goel said, "Had there been no Shaheen Bagh, there would not have been any riots."

Launching a blistering attack on the central government, Congress leader Kapil Sibal asked Union Home Minister Amit Shah on why FIRs have not been registered against those who delivered hate speeches that allegedly incited communal violence in Delhi. "You can do anything to protect cows, can't you do anything to protect the lives of human beings? Do we need to bring another Article to ensure the protection of human being?" the former union minister asked.
