New Delhi : In a hard-hitting attack on the government over the new citizenship law, Opposition parties on Friday held it responsible for the widespread unrest in the country following the legislation''s enactment and said the society was dangerously inching toward a civil war-like situation.

Leader of the Opposition in the Rajya Sabha Ghulam Nabi Azad said the government has lowered the prestige of President''s office by including the CAA in his address.

"The society is dangerously inching toward a civil war-like situation and the government is solely responsible for it," CPM general secretary Sitaram Yechury said.

Azad said the government claiming development in Jammu and Kashmir after making it a Union Territory is a cruel joke with people there, and he demanded that the Centre should apologise. He said it was shameful that the government claimed CAA to be an achievement and included it in president''s address.

A day after a Jamia Millia Islamia student was injured in firing here, Congress MP Shashi Tharoor expressed shock and held the NDA government responsible for "creating a climate of hatred" in the country.

"This government is responsible for creating a climate of hatred, wherein certain people feel they are empowered to fire at peaceful protesters. It is really shocking and very disappointing. Certainly, the police should take action," the Congress leadersaid.

The Karnataka BJP was forced to delete a controversial tweet on Friday when it turned the firing incident at Jamia into a meme.

The tweet appeared to suggest that the gunman opened fire on anti-CAA protesters in the national capital as a reaction to anti-CAA activist Sharjeel Imam's controversial speeches.
