Union Law Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad on Sunday said the government will talk to youngsters and clear any confusion they have about the amended citizenship act but will not talk to those raising slogans of "Azadi" and are part of the "tukde-tukde gang".
Underlining that India is a democratic country, he said there is a freedom to protest but "there can't be any compromise with national security".
"We welcome criticism but such voices and views which talk about dividing the country are not acceptable," he said at a programme on the amended Act organised by the Vishwa Hindu Parishad.
Talking about youngsters protesting against the Act, Mr Prasad said the government will talk to them to clear their confusion.
"We will talk to youngsters to clear any confusion there is about the Act but not with those who are talking about 'Azadi' and are a part of the 'tukde-tukde gang'," Mr Prasad said.
He said the government has repeatedly said this law doesn't apply to current Indian citizens. Even Congress leaders, including former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, on various occasions, have talked about the need for giving citizenship to Hindus, Sikhs and people from other persecuted minorities who came to India from Pakistan and Bangladesh.
Meanwhile, Ravi Shankar Prasad also met a baby girl named ''Nagrikta'' who was born on the day the law was passed by the parliament.
