Daryaganj is a locality in New Delhi where Musharraf was born.
Swamy wrote, “All self—acknowledged descendants of Hindus are qualified in a new CAA to come.”
Swamy’s comments come amid widespread protests in the country over the contentious citizenship law which seeks to grant citizenship to illegal immigrants from Pakistan, Bangladesh, and Afghanistan who entered India on or before 31st December 2014.
