Jamiat Ulama-i-Hind has strongly criticized Indian Home Minister Amit Shah's recent statement on the National Register of Citizens, in which he intentionally skipped to mention Muslims. 

Jamiat general secretary Maulana Mahmood Madani alleged that it seems only Muslims would be kept in detention camps in Assam.

Madani cautioned that if that happened, then it would tarnish India's image.

He was referring to Shah's speech at a rally in Kolkata on 1st of this month where he said the government would "throw out all infiltrators one by one" by enforcing NRC simultaneously clarifying that no Hindu, Sikh, Jain or Buddhist needed to worry because they would be accorded Indian citizenship with passage of the Citizenship (Amendment) Bill.
