The Bollywood fraternity continues to be divided over the controversial Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA), which has resulted in massive protests in India.

While several celebrities have spoken out against the controversial Act and defended the countrywide students’ protests, actor Paresh Rawal took to social media to defend the highly rejected bill in the worst possible way.

Rawal posted a tweet with wrong facts, “Myanmar is situated at a distance of 1769 km from India and merely 2 km from China, then why immigrants move to India than China”.

He then goes on to blame the anti-nationals for Rohingya Muslim influx.

 

According to geographical aspect, the total length of the international border between Myanmar and India is 1,643 kilometres (km). Just like how Myanmar shares a border with China, it also shares its border with four Indian states [Arunachal Pradesh, Nagaland, Mizoram, and Manipur]. In fact, all three nations share borders.

Netizens trolled Rawal for his lack of knowledge about geography and also about being selfish towards the immigrants.

Facing the severe backlash, Rawal also tried to justify his act by saying, “Don’t find the fault with the postal stamp (geography etc ) but read the message/ meaning”.
