The BJP central government will try its best to pass the bill in Rajya Sabha also.
Or PM Mr.Narendra Modi after minutes of legislative assembly passes the bill he congratulated and tweeted, “Delighted that the Lok Sabha has passed the Citizenship Amendment Bill, 2019, after a rich and extensive debate. I thank the various MPs and parties that supported the bill. This bill is in line with India’s centuries-old ethos of assimilation and belief in humanitarian values,”
Let us understand about Citizenship bill
- Presently, for a person to get Indian citizenship it is mandatory to live in the country at least 11 years.
- By the amendment of the bill, the government will decrease the period to six years to get citizenship of India.
- The people from six minority communities i.e. Hindu, Buddhist, Jain, Parsi, Christian and Sikhs from Bangladesh, Afghanistan and Pakistan will get the citizenship of India.
- Presently, the Citizenship Act 1955 states that the illegal migrants will not get citizenship of India.
- These are those people who entered the country without valid travelling documents.
The disagreement of an opposition party
The opposition party put an allegation on the central government as following
- It hurtled the principle of equality.
- The bill will create fear for Muslim i.e. anti-Muslim.
- And also criticise for making Hindu Pakistan.
Following are the arguments of Home Minister Amit Shah
Amit Shah said, “In Afghanistan, Pakistan and Bangladesh, Hindus, Sikhs, Buddhists, Christians, Parsis and Jains have been discriminated against. So this Bill will give these persecuted people citizenship. Also, the allegation that this Bill will take away the right of Muslims is wrong.”
“Why do we need this Bill today? After Independence, if Congress had not done partition on the basis of religion, then today we would have not needed this Bill. Congress did partition on the basis of religion.”
He added, “If any Muslim from these three (Afghanistan, Pakistan, Bangladesh) nations applies for citizenship according to our law, then we will consider it, but the person won’t get the benefit of this amendment as the person has not faced religious persecution.”
Hope the articles will helps the aspirant to update themselves about their environment.
