On Thursday, Union Home Minister Amit Shah said Shraddha Walker’s killer would be punished severely at the earliest opportunity.
“I am keeping an eye on the situation. As Shah said at a Times Now Summit, “the Delhi Police and the prosecution will ensure that anyone guilty of the crime receives the harshest punishment.” There was no involvement on the part of the Delhi Police in the letter (written by Shraddha in 2020). According to Shraddha, she was threatened with being killed and cut into pieces by the police under the Maharashtra government. Despite that, nothing was done. It was announced yesterday that a probe would be conducted into the matter, Deputy CM Devendra Fadnavis. Even though our government wasn’t in power then, we will take strict action against those responsible,” he said.
In addition, Shah slammed the Aam Aadmi Party for alleging the BJP is using videos to discredit them ahead of the Gujarat elections. According to Shah, the question of a jailed minister enjoying prison amenities should be raised by his party, not ours, regarding Delhi Minister Satyendar Jain. “After a minister has been jailed, I have never seen a party not ask for his resignation on moral grounds,” he said.
Shah and Bharatiya Jan Sangh and Bharatiya Janata Party have always promised the people of this country the Uniform Civil Code. “How can a secular country have a law based on religion?” asked Shah. We will implement UCC in the country after the Bharatiya Janata Party has concluded all democratic discussions.”
Every party except the BJP opposes the Uniform Civil Code. The importance of healthy debate in a democracy cannot be overstated. A healthy and open discussion is needed on the issue,” he added. Himachal Pradesh, Uttarakhand, and Gujarat have formed a panel under the chairmanship of retired Supreme Court and High Court chief justices, and their recommendations will be followed.
