What is the citizenship amendment bill? Why required and what is wrong with the bill, who is Indian?

#CAB #CitizenshipAmendmentBill #CitizenshipAmendmentBill2019 WHAT IS CITIZENSHIP AMENDMENT BILL? Citizenship (Amendment) Bill 2019:  It reduces the requirement for citizenship from 11 years to just 6 years. It seeks to allow illegal migrants from certain minority communities in Afghanistan, Bangladesh and Pakistan eligible for Indian citizenship by amending the Citizenship Act of 1955.  It seeks to grant citizenship to people from minority communities — Hindus, Sikhs, Buddhists, Jains, Parsis and Christians —after 6 years of stay in India even if they do not possess any proper document. The current requirement is 12 years of stay.  The Bill provides that the registration of Overseas Citizen of India (OCI) cardholders may be cancelled if they violate any law.  The notifications also exempted these migrants from the Passport Act and Foreigners Act. The Bill, however, does not extend to illegal Muslim migrants. It also does not talk about other minority communities in the three neighbouring countries, such as Jews, Bahais etc. Need for the bill:  There are thousands of Hindus, Sikhs, Jains, Buddhists, Christians and Parsis who have entered India after facing religious persecution in countries like Pakistan, Bangladesh and Afghanistan without any valid document.  All the reports clearly say that there is a threat perception on the basis of what is perceived as an unfinished agenda.  These refugees have been facing difficulty in getting Long Term Visa (LTV) or Citizenship  The existing Citizenship law does not allow anyone granting Indian nationality if he or she can not show proof of documents on the country of birth and therefore they have to stay at least 12 years in India.  Those Hindus who are persecuted due to religion has no other place to go except India. Issues surrounding the bill:  It makes a distinction on the basis of religion.  The proposed amendment is, however, unprecedented, in the sense that never before has religion been specifically identified in the citizenship law as the ground for distinguishing between citizens and non-citizens.  Civil society groups are opposing the bill, terming it “communally motivated humanitarianism.”  Since Article 14 of the Constitution guarantees equality to all persons, citizens and foreigners, differentiating between people on the grounds of religion would be in violation of the constitution.  The Bill will stamp these countries as institutions of religious oppression and worsen bilateral ties.  The proposed law not only provides citizenship rights to such refugees but greatly relaxes the procedure to avail of them.  Assam has a major problem regarding the infiltration of Bangladeshi illegal immigrants. this bill does not consider Bangladeshi Hindus as illegal immigrants.  The implicit consequence of such a law is that people only from the Muslim community in Afghanistan, Pakistan and Bangladesh will be treated as illegal immigrants.  Provides wide discretion to the government to cancel OCI registrations for both major offences like murder, as well as minor offences like parking in a no-parking zone or jumping a red light.
