The Citizenship (Amendment) Act, 2019 was passed by the Parliament of India on 11 December 2019.
It amended the Citizenship Act of 1955 by providing a path to Indian citizenship for Hindu, Sikh, Buddhist, Jain, Parsi, and Christian religious minorities fleeing persecution from Pakistan, Bangladesh, and Afghanistan and came to India on or before 30 Dec 2014, 11:59 pm.
Rumors are circulating through Social media asking the following questions:
- Indian Muslims will be thrown out.
- Why can’t the BJP government give citizenship for the Majority of people from Pakistan, Afghanistan, and Bangladesh?.
- Why can’t we Include Sri Lankan citizens who are staying in refugee camps since 2009?
- Do we have to show our Grandfather’s identity proof?
What is the Prime Minister of India’s opinion about CAA?
The Citizenship Amendment Act, 2019 was passed by both Houses of Parliament with overwhelming support. Large number of political parties and MPs supported its passage. This Act illustrates India’s centuries-old culture of acceptance, harmony, compassion, and brotherhood.
What is the INC leader Sonia Gandhi’s opinion?
The passage of the Citizenship Amendment Bill marks the victory of narrow-minded and bigoted forces over India’s pluralism
What did the Supreme court of India say?
We are not going to grant a stay and we have nothing to say right now .
The reasoning is very simple if you wish for a solution:
- Indian Muslims with proper proof stays here.
- None of the Majority Muslims from Pakistan, Afghanistan, and Bangladesh would ever possibly be religiously persecuted and thrown out.
- Giving dual citizenship for Sri Lankan Tamils has been already appealed to the Home Minister of India.
- This is about CAA not NRC. CAA and NRC are different ends, but both have to do with citizenship of India.
No, there is not need to oppose CAA.
The bill is to protect minorities of Pakistan, Afganistan, and Bangladesh.
