Prime Time takes a look at the mention of Mahatma Gandhi by the government with reference to the Citizenship Act. Are Mahatma Gandhi's ideals being followed to the hilt by the Centre? Are Gandhi's words being misquoted or partially quoted by the BJP for political benefit? At a rally held in Delhi on December 22, Prime Minister Narendra Modi defended the Citizenship Amendment Act and said that Mahatma Gandhi had said that Sikhs and Hindus living in Pakistan will always be welcomed in India. Later, Home Minister Amit Shah said at a rally in Vaishali in Bihar that Gandhi had said that "Hindus and Sikhs living in Pakistan can come to India" and that "India's priority would be to rehabilitate them, provide them with jobs and give them citizenship".
