Why do people protest against CAB (Citizenship Amendment Bill) 2019 ?

Is proposal of the law a sudden move?
  • No. Citizenship Amendment Bill appears in the election manifesto of the 2019 General Elections.
  • The BJP’s 2014 manifesto rather crudely states that “India shall remain a natural home for persecuted Hindus and they shall be welcome to seek refuge here.”
Why does the bill leave Muslims out?
  • As per Union Home Minister, Amit Shah, Bangladesh, Pakistan and Afghanistan are Islamic or Muslim dominated countries where Muslims are a majority.
  • Hence, Muslims cannot be said to be religiously persecuted in these countries and hence are not being included under this amendment.
Is it true that Muslims do not face religious persecution in Pakistan?
  • No.
  • The Ahmadiyya community in Pakistan suffer severe religious persecution.
  • They are not allowed to call themselves Muslims.
  • So are the Baluchis in Baluchistan.
Who does this bill wilfully ignore?


  • To name a few, Rohingyas from Myanmar, Tamils from Sri Lanka (Muslim or Hindu!)
  • Ahmadiyyas from Pakistan are a few examples of people who have faced religious persecution but are not being protected under the bill.
What are the implications of the bill for Muslims who migrated to India?


  • By implication, or interpretation, all Muslims who seek Indian citizenship by naturalisation (application hitherto made after 12 years residence as migrants/refugees) will not be eligible for grant of citizenship by right.
  • The resulting statelessness is a cause for deep concern as their fates could lie not in the “Refugee” or “transit” camps, as they are at the moment, but in detention camps.
  • The legal basis of these detention camps is as much in question as are the abysmal conditions and non-transparency under which they operate.
What will happen to people who cannot claim citizenship as per this bill?


  • The implications have not been enumerated in the proposed law but taking Assam as an example, one can only infer that such persons will find themselves being detained in detention camps, preparations for which have already begun in states like Maharashtra, Karnataka and West Bengal.

Does India have a repatriation treaty with Bangladesh, Afghanistan and Pakistan?

  • Repatriation is the process of sending someone back or returning someone to their place of origin.
  • Once the government determines the nationality of the illegal migrants (as per the bill), ideally, they should be sent back to their home country.
  • However, India does not have an arrangement or agreement with any of these countries to repatriate migrants back to these countries.

Does migrants belonging to Muslim community will be termed as illegal migrants ?

  • By implication, yes. All “illegal migrants” or foreigners without valid travel documents who do not belong to Hindu, Sikh, Buddhist, Jain, Parsi or Christian communities will be considered as illegal migrants.
