As a Canadian citizen you can live in India, work here, pay taxes without visiting Canada and still remain a Canadian citizen. A luxury that I as an Indian don't have. If you didn't need to prove your love for India, why be embarrassed about holding a Canadian passport?— Rupa Subramanya (@rupasubramanya) May 3, 2019
No one cares about your citizenship until you align yourself with fascists who distribute patriotism certificates to the others. Sonia Gandhi has voluntarily taken up Indian citizenship and she receives the most vile misogynist nonsense for being an “Italian” from those fascists.— Baba (@BabaGlocal) May 3, 2019
Akshay Kumar on Friday released a statement about the ongoing controversy. In his statement, he talks about his Canadian citizenship, he said:
"I really don't understand the unwarranted interest and negativity about my citizenship. I have never hidden or denied that I hold a Canadian passport."
In 2017, in an interview with Times Now, he had said that he is an 'honorary citizen' of Canada.
You bloody liar, Fake Nationalist, in 2017 you had said that you're honorary citizen of Canada, people should be proud of it.— Md Asif Khan آصِف (@imMAK02) May 3, 2019
Kuch bhi..Don't fool people. You can't be an honorary citizen of Canada as our constitution does not allow such an arrangement. You are either a citizen of India or not. There's no half way house in between. There are only 6 honorary citizens of Canada and you ain't one of them..— Soul of India (@iamtssh) May 2, 2019
