When government tries every little thing to make the public understand the newly amended bill which is the CITIZENSHIP AMENDMENT BILL and it is still reason of burning and urging protest. Both the Government and BJP have alleged that there has been a concentrated attempt to distort the reality of CAA-NRC and that combined. The true pictures may be different and totally have some clear aspects that are the need of hour. The citizenship amendment act 2019 was passed on 11th December, 2019. It amended the citizenship act of 1955 by providing a path to Indian citizenship to Hindu, Sikh, Buddhist, Jain, Parsi and Christian religious minorities from Pakistan, Bangladesh and Afghanistan. For the first time, the term religion had been used as criteria for the citizenship under Indian law. As far as everyone knows that the persecution of minorities such as Hindu, Sikh and Christians has been a serious problem in such countries and so they come to India as a refugee for shelter.


The amendment has been criticized to be discriminating on the basis of religion and the office of united nation high commissioner for human rights has called it to be FUNDAMENTALLY DISCRIMINATORY. The basic critics has been made over the NRC bill for India. As it would come in combination with CAA and would exploit a lot of people nation-wide.


Some Questions raised on this are the ones coming from the people of country. Because as of now, a lot of people have misunderstood the concept of the act and NRC bill. Though NRC bill is still in process for the whole country and is still imposed only for the places in Assam.


To make it clear here are some of the very few information any citizen of INDIA must know before creating an opinion and spreading it wide. India is up in arms over the citizenship amendment act and National register of citizenship for last one week. The union government has been at pain to assuage the concerns and has been reiterating that no Indian has to worry about anything.

The details of each one’s birth like date\month and year and for more preciseness the place of birth are enough. No other documents will be compulsorily asked to be submitted.
