The discussion started after the Union Home Minister introduced the bill in the lower house of parliament. Opposition leader of the Lok Sabha, Adhir Chowdhury, strongly opposed the bill. He said the bill was against the interests of minorities. Trinamool Congress MP Saugat Roy also opposed the bill.
Although Amit Shah, on this day, has claimed that the bill is not against minorities. All India United Democratic Front (AIUDF) MP Badruddin Ajmal staged a protest at Jantar Mantar in Delhi just before the bill was tabled.
The cabinet gave the bill a few days ago. The amended bill was introduced in the Lok Sabha last January. It was said that Hindus, Sikhs, Jains, Parsis, Buddhists and Christian people from Afghanistan, Pakistan, and Bangladesh, who are refugees in this country, will be given citizenship.
The bill was identified as the basis for December 7, 20. That is, those who came to India earlier that day will get citizenship. But the issue of Muslim refugees remains unanswered. And it becomes clear that Muslims from three neighboring countries will not get citizenship from this country.
