Union Minister Amit Shah on Wednesday tabled the Citizenship Amendment Bill, 2019, in Rajya Sabha during the winter session of the Parliament. Amit Shah said, “There has been an almost 20% decline each in population of religious minorities in both Pakistan and present day Bangladesh. Either they were killed or they fled to India for shelter.”
Meanwhile, he said, “Misinformation has been spread that this bill is against Muslims of India. I want to ask the people saying this that how is this bill related to Indian Muslims? They are Indian citizens and will always remain, no discrimination against them.”
“No Muslim in India needs to worry due to this Bill. Don’t get scared if someone tries to scare you. This is Narendra Modi’s Govt working according to constitution, minorities will get full protection,” he added.
Amit Shah added that “In 1985, Assam accord happened. There is a provision in clause 6 to protect indigenous culture of the state. I want to assure that NDA Government through committee to supervise clause 6 will protect rights of Assam. All Assam Students’ Union is part of committee.”
