PM Modi directly replied to the opposition over the increasing amount of resistance faced over the Citizenship Amendment Act and he said, "You have also seen to what extent these people are going for their politics and serve their own interests. The statements which were given, the false videos, the inciting things, people sitting at high levels have committed the crime of spreading confusion and fire by putting it on social media. I want to ask the people, who are spreading false rumours about CAA, did we ask anyone about their religion or political beliefs when we took the decision to authorize the unauthorized colonies in Delhi? But after the Citizenship Amendment Bill is passed, some political parties are spreading rumours, confusing people, provoking emotions."

Some people are even saying that the CAB is against the poor people of the country. The Congress and its allies, some educated Naxalites-Urban Naxals living in cities, are spreading rumours that all Muslims will be sent to Detention Center. At least value your education.
