Alleging that the Congress was behind the protest, Chief Minister B S Yediyurappa had said, "it is because of people like Khader such things are happening, and if they continue in the same way, they will have to face the consequences". However, Khader denied the charge that he had incited people to indulge in violence.

    "There has been widespread opposition against the CAA in north India as a result of which that part of the country is burning. I had concern about the flames of protest spreading to our state and wished that such a situation does not arise in Karnataka," he said on Friday.

    The former minister also stated that he had only said that our state should not burn due to protests. "It will be wrong to interpret my statement as Karnataka will burn", he said. If the state government claims that there is no such situation in the state, why prohibitory order under section 144 has been invoked? Khader asked.

    Recently, the Congress MLA had claimed that the state would "blow up in cinders if the Yediyurappa government tried to implement the Citizenship (Amendment) Act (CAA)". Two persons were killed and several injured in Mangaluru as protests against the CAA took a violent turn on Thursday.
