Pune, January 31: Actor Urmila Matondkar said on Thursday that the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) will be known as the "black law in the history".
She terms CAA as similar to Rowlatt Act that was brought by British Government. Speaking at an event here on the death anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi, Urmila said, "After the end of the Second World War in 1919, the British knew that unrest was spreading in India and that may rise after the Second World War was over. So, they brought a law commonly known as the Rowlatt Act. That 1919 law and the Citizenship (Amendment) Act of 2019 will be recorded as black laws in history," she continued.
“Gandhiji was the leader of the whole world, not of any country. According to me, if anyone has followed the Hindu religion most, then it is Gandhiji,” she added.
