What was the statement of Sharjeel Imam:-
Although the speech of The Sharjeel Imam is very long, we are here to place before the readers the part that says inflammatory and damaging the integrity of the country. At the anti-CAA programme, Sharjeel Imam had said, "It is time for us to speak to non-Muslims to come and stand by our terms if they are our sympathy. If they did not stand on our terms, they would not be our sympathy. If we have 5 lakh people organized, we can separate the North-East from India permanently. If not permanently, you can cut Assam from India for at least one-half months. Pour so much pus on the tracks, on the road that it took a month to remove them. If you want to go, go to the Air Force.
