Union Home Minister Amit Shah on Monday tabled the controversial Citizenship (Amendment) Bill (CAB), 2019, in Lok Sabha to amend the six-decade-old Citizenship Act. The amended bill seeks to grant Indian citizenship to non-Muslim refugees from Pakistan, Bangladesh and Afghanistan escaping religious persecution there. Amid strong protests and sloganeering from Opposition leaders, AIMIM chief and Lok Sabha MP Asaduddin Owaisi once again continued his hateful rant and compared HM Amit Shah to Hitler.

Continuing his rants against the CAB, Owaisi asked the speaker to save the country from such a law and save the Home Minister also. ‘Otherwise, like in Nuremberg race laws and Israel’s citizenship act, Home Minister’s name will be featured with Hitler and David Ben-Gurion, said Owaisi in the Lok Sabha.

“In Israel, the Defence Minister’s name was attached to that of Hitler,” said Owaisi referring to David Ben-Gurion who was the first Prime Minister and defence minister of the State of Isreal.

Since the time the Citizenship Amendment Bill has been brought up for discussion in the Lok Sabha’s winter session, the AIMIM chief has been continuing his tirade against the Modi government. Hitting out at the central government Owaisi had recently rehashed that if CAB is implemented it “will make India Israel.”

“The Citizenship Amendment Bill (CAB) in itself shows that they want to make India a religious country,” Owaisi told ANI. “India will be in the league of Israel which is the most discriminatory country in the world,” he added.

Nobody really knows what Owaisi’s rationale is considering that India is not making any laws against its Muslim citizens. India is not obligated to give citizenship to Muslims from Islamic nations. The CAB is aimed at giving citizenship to persecuted minorities from Islamic nations like Pakistan, Afghanistan and Bangladesh. Unless Owaisi believes the theory of ‘Ummah’ and that all Muslims of the world belong to the same nation based on religion, one is hard-pressed to understand this line of attack.

Owaisi had earlier in another veiled attack said that the Modi government was “reviving two-nation theory” and would “dishonour our freedom fighters” if the Bill was passed. “If we pass this law then it will be disrespect towards Mahatma Gandhi and BR Ambedkar”, Owaisi had said.

The BJP-led NDA government had introduced the Bill in its previous tenure and got the Lok Sabha’s approval. But it did not introduce it in the Rajya Sabha, apparently due to vehement protests in the Northeast. That Bill lapsed following the dissolution of the last Lok Sabha.

Paving the way for Parliament to take up the contentious Citizenship (Amendment) Bill, the Union Cabinet on Wednesday approved the draft law and has been taken up for discussion and passage in the Lok Sabha today.
