Why Citizenship Amendment Bill is required?

What is the Amendment?

The Citizenship (Amendment) Bill 2019, seeks to give Indian nationality to non-Muslim refugees from Pakistan, Bangladesh and Afghanistan. The bill was passed in the Lower House yesterday by 411 votes in favour. there were 80 votes opposing the bill.

The Bill seeks to amend the procedure for grant of citizenship for Hindu, Sikh, Parsi, Buddhist and Christian immigrants from Pakistan, Afghanistan and Bangladesh, who have lived in India without documentation. They will be granted fast-track Indian citizenship in six years, relaxing present requirement of 12 years of residence as eligibility requirement for naturalisation.

Why the amendment is required?

Bill seeks to regularise about half a million of asylum seekers who are living in India for decades. It does nothing for those who are still accross the border.

It does not legalize illegal migrants who sneaked into India through porus borders from Bangladesh and Pakistan. It also exclude Rohingyas of Myanmar.

China wants to build a road very near to the most vulnerable point in North-East India. India and China do not have agreed borderline or even line of control. Both country’s army knows it and respects each other’s sovereignty. Except in 1962, there has never been any armed conflict in past 200 years of recorded history and 2000 years perceived history. Before China became communist, both countries had strong cultural ties. Hinduism’s rebel Buddha’s teachings were and are most popular in China.
