The Citizenship Amendment Act provides citizenship for religiously subjugated minorities like Hindus from Pakistan, Afghanistan and Bangladesh and has nothing to do with the Indian citizens, especially, Indian Muslims.
Bengaluru: A lie repeated a hundred thousand times becomes the truth.
And that ‘truth’ spreads like wildfire, consuming in its gargantuan flames, millions of innocent people who refuse to verify the filth they are being fed into.
The Citizenship Amendment Act, which was passed by the Indian Parliament, is a tool to accommodate subjugated, mortified, harassed and persecuted non-Muslims, namely Hindus, Sikhs, Jains, Parsis, Buddhists and Christians from Pakistan, Afghanistan and Bangladesh.
Why not Muslims?
Well, the very foundation of the Act bases itself of religious persecution.
Muslims, in the three countries of Pakistan, Afghanistan and Bangladesh cannot be persecuted religiously as the three countries have Islam as their state religion.
So if there are arguments that the Ahmadiyyas or Shias might face persecution, these persecutions will not be on a religious basis, for they don’t form a minority in these countries. In case, these persecuted Muslims want to flee, they don’t come to India, but prefer Iraq and Iran.
In simple words, the CAA doesn’t apply to any Indian citizen. Be the citizen a Hindu, a Muslim, a Christian or anyone else, they are absolutely immune from the law.
What about the NRC?
Well, the National Register of Citizens (NRC) was conducted in Assam, not based on the whims and fancies of the BJP, but as ordered and monitored by the Supreme Court.
It was first initiated by former PM Rajiv Gandhi in the year 1985 as part of the Assam Accord.
No, NRC and CAA are not related
While there is a strident effort to link the CAA with the NRC, in reality, the two are at all related.
The CAA is a law but the NRC is still in a conceptual stage. Yes, Union home minister Amit Shah has reiterated that NRC would be held across India, but as of now, it is still in the drafting stage. The government is still formulating it. So there is no need to worry about it.
