Sadhguru, today gave released a nearly 22 minutes long video on the Citizenship Amendment Act and National Register of Citizens. The video was even shared by Prime Minister Modi, and called it “lucid explanation” and said “provides historical context, brilliantly highlights our culture and brotherhood. He also calls out the misinformation by vested interest groups.”
However, the video backfired Sadhguru, as he started his lecture with: “Because I’ve not read the Act fully. I only know it from the newspapers and whatever else is generally out there.”
He Addresses the students in the protest as “illiterates” and says that it is sad that no one reads the Act”.
“There is certain desperation among certain people who misinformed illiterate masses of a religious group who went wild thinking local Indian Muslims will lose their citizenship. That’s what they conveyed. They sent out a message saying they are discriminating and all of you will lose your citizenship and they will throw you out. Well, such mischief should not have worked on the scale that it worked. It should not have. It is unfortunate. Still, in today’s day and age, where to you can just open up your phone and read the Act, what does it say? It’s really sad that no one reads the Act, everyone goes by rumors that are going on. WhatsApp is their source of knowledge,”
To this many are calling Jaggi for his hypocrisy, as he hasn’t himself read anything about the law, and he is criticizing students for their actions.
