South superstar Rajinikanth has broken his silence over Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) but he did not take anyone's side and stood neutral on this issue. He posted a press statement on his Twitter which led the netizens divided.

"Violence is not the way to find solution for any issue. I request the people of India to stay united keeping in mind the nation's security and welfare," said the statement of Rajinikanth. The actor turned politician added that the violence and unrest in the country has pained him and appealed everyone to stay calm at this moment.

However, Rajinikanth was late to express his opinion on CAA and the other day during his upcoming movie 'Darbar' trailer launch in Mumbai, he refused to comment on it. This late reaction has brought criticism. A few of them backed him while a few opposed him. The hashtags #IStandWithRajnikanth and #ShameOnSanghiRajini were trending on Twitter for some time now.

Meanwhile, the protests over CAA have intensified all over the country. In Mangalore, two persons have died in the clashes between cops and agitators. In the national capital, Muslim community members have sat down at Jama Masjid. Large number of police personnel were deployed at Jama Masjid.
