What is the Citizenship Law of India?
The “Citizenship Amendment Act,” approved by India’s Parliament on Dec. 11.
Also, it makes religion a criterion for nationality in the country’s citizenship law for the first time.
Therefore creates an expedited path to citizenship for migrants from three countries.
Those three countries are Pakistan, Bangladesh, and Afghanistan.
Whose religions are Hinduism, Buddhism, Christianity, Sikhism, Jainism, and Zoroastrianism who illegally entered the country by 2014.
Well, it’s kinda hard if you think of it right?
So to make it simple, The country wants to be freed from these different countries.
Because of these three countries (Pakistan, Bangladesh, and Afghanistan) The Country wants to part ways with them.
The Prime Minister of India, Nerendra Mudi said:
“will have no effect on citizens of India, including Hindus, Muslims, Sikhs, Jains, Christians and Buddhists”
He said also to his supporters that
“Spreading lies and rumours”, “instigating violence” and “used its full force to create an atmosphere of illusion and falsehood”.
And so the Hindu nationalist Bharatiya Janata Party said they are to protect people from countries.
Also for them to apply easier in Indian Citizenship.
If you think of it it seems that it’s unfair right?
But on the other hand, it will just be a protection to India Itself.
After all the said countries are the ones who entered India.
In other words, Mr. Modi just wants to eliminate these “infiltrators.”
But just to clarify, fleeing them from India.
And moreover, It will keep the country aware.
