Why Is The Citizenship Act Creating A Divide?

This week, the government passed the Citizenship Amendment Bill which has now become a law. But it has been a move that has sparked anger, protests and despair in various parts of the country. The law now makes it easier for non-Muslims from 3 Muslim majority countries - Pakistan, Bangladesh and Afghanistan to acquire Indian citizenship. Opposition parties and many civil rights activists had opposed the bill on the ground that it discriminates against Muslims and this is unconstitutional under Article 14 - a cornerstone of our Constitution that states Equality before law.

    Constitution is not fixed; it was amended several times. thus, in future it can be amended and secularism can be thrown out. Secularism was not there in the original constitution; but it was imposed on the constitution in 1976 by Fakir Uddin Ali Ahmed during the emergency. It is wrong to say that we have chosen to be secular. we have not. There was no referendum on this issue. In fact there is a serious defect in our constitution that we have no provision of any referendum. Thus, constitution has to be revised.

    1. India was divided because of religious reason; thus we have to open up the question of religion whether it is according to secularism or not. 2. Tribals are not neccesarily indigenous because in the NE lots of people came from China since the 13th century, some of them came only 200 years ago. 3. Only indigenous people in the NE are the Hindu Bengalis. Tribals are not indigenous in the NE.

    Our Hon,ble CM is right that he said " no need NRC in Tripura because everyone has documents". but it's fact in Tripura. To get documents is no problem. If so , what will do C(A)A in Tripura rather they'll be given opportunity to get double citizenship by the government of India.

    How is it wrong to help mistreated minorities in radical countries? Isn't it so dramatic and attention-seeking to compare a nationalist Prime Minister to Hitler? Isn't the brutality of hitler more closely related to killing, and forceful conversion in our neighborhood? How can education ever lead to such twisted thinking?

    North east always claims they are becoming minorities, but in reality, they are minority, because they chose to be, they keep dividing even amongst their own race, into many clans, then blame others for becoming minorities...it looks like north east themselves aren't sure who they are, but always grab at the chance of blaming others for their own made problems.

    No, CAA is not "creating a divide". It´s just a small humanitarian act for very few people. Nothing special. Who are creating the divide are certain Anti-India elements who want to win the power over India. The CAA-protests is just the means to that aim. Nothing else. It could have been anything, they could have chosen to attack...the fight for India, the last refuge for Hindus and other dharmic religions has begun.
