Citizenship Amendment Act, 2019 came into force all over India recently. The act gives citizenship to minority refuges who are religiously prosecuted, from three countries Pakistan, Afghanistan and Bangladesh. Over the years, the minorities in these three countries were subjected to continuous prosecution, and the population percentage of minorities are in rapid decline. Leaders from Mahatma Gandhi, Nehru to Manmohan Singh kept promising the prosecuted people will be given Indian Citizenship. But no Government had political Will to do so. Present Government under the leadership of Narendra Modi based the bill in Parliament with absolute majority.
After the bill is passed, opposition kept peddling brash perpetual lie and instilled fear among Indian minorities and triggered violence and riots across the country. Congress leader Shashi Tharoor visited JNU campus and met students who are protesting for fee hike. While visiting Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU), the new epicentre for violent protests in the country, Congress MP Shashi Tharoor peddled lies about Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) again.
He said that first time a religious test has been introduced into definition of Indian citizenship. This is blatant lie. The muslim from these three countries can apply for citizen ship through normal process. Perceived to be a learned politician, spreading blatant lie makes one wonder whether he has low IQ?
