Voting in Lok Sabha

The Citizenship Amendment Bill proposes to provide citizenship to the persecuted minorities of Pakistan, Bangladesh and Afghanistan. The Hindu, Parsi, Sikh, Christian, Jain etc minorities of Islamic nations like Pakistan, Bangladesh and Afghanistan are severely persecuted and have been demanding citizenship of India for long.

The opposition parties including Congress, TMC etc have opposed the Citizenship Amendment Bill tooth and nail asserting that the bill is anti-Muslim. The opposition parties fail to understand that CAB aims to give citizenship to persecuted minorities from Islamic nations and that Muslim sects like Shias and Ahmeddiyas are not ‘minorities’ since Islam is the dominant religion of those countries.

Today in the parliament, the opposition parties’ argument against the CAB were mostly misplaced and born out of their electoral politics that aims to appease the minority Muslim community in India. AIMIM chief Owaisi went as far as to call Amit Shah ‘Hitler’ and said that the constitution would be subverted if the bill is introduced and passed.
