‘As there is not a single Hindu country, CAA is a necessity to ensure citizenship for them’

Union Minister Nitin Gadkari at News18 Chaupal on Wednesday.

‘Several Countries for Muslims But Not a Single One For Hindus’: Gadkari on Citizenship Act Row.

Union Minister Nitin Gadkari said opposition parties are trying to mislead the people on the issue of Citizenship Amendment Act.

News18.com Online | New Delhi | Dec 18, 2019:: Amid widespread protests in the country against the Citizenship Amendment Act, Union Minister Nitin Gadkari said the law is a necessity as no country in the world right now is specifically for the Hindus.

Speaking at the News18 India Chaupal on Wednesday, Gadkari justified the government’s move, saying, “There is no country in the world for the Hindus. Earlier Nepal was one Hindu nation but now there is not a single Hindu nation…so where will the Hindus, Sikhs go? For Muslims there are several Muslim nations where they can get citizenship…opposition is trying to mislead the people.”

“We are not against any Muslim citizens of our nation. Some political parties are creating fear among minorities. I assure you that our government is against discrimination politics,” the Union Road Transport and Highways Minister added.

As per Citizenship Amendment Act, a specific group of illegal immigrants — those who came from Afghanistan, Bangladesh or Pakistan on or before December 31, 2014 and belong to Hindu, Sikh Buddhist, Jain, Parsi, or Christian religious communities — will not be treated as illegal immigrants and will now be eligible for citizenship.

The law allows a person to apply for citizenship via naturalization if they need the qualifications pertaining to residency in India — that they be employed in central government service for the past 12 months, or spend 11 of the past 14 years in India. For this group, the residency requirement for naturalization has been relaxed from 11 years to 5 years.

Meanwhile, the Supreme Court on Wednesday decided to examine the constitutional validity of the Act but refused to stay its operation.

A clutch of petitions challenging the Act, which has seen protests across the country, were filed in the Supreme Court. Among those who filed the petitions are senior Congress leader Jairam Ramesh, Asom Gana Parishad and the Indian Union Muslim League.

According to the petitioners, religion cannot be the basis for grant of citizenship. They said the new law is against the basic structure of the Constitution as admitting illegal migrants as citizens on the basis of religion violates the fundamental rights to life and equality.

    ‘According to the petitioners, religion cannot be the basis for grant of citizenship. They said the new law is against the basic structure of the Constitution as admitting illegal migrants as citizens on the basis of religion violates the fundamental rights to life and equality.’

    Let us look at all the errors here:

    1) No one is using religion alone as the basis of citizenship. It is the combination of religion, persecution and proximity that is serving as the basis of citizenship – and this is right and good.

    2) The non-Muslims fleeing persecution in Muslim-majority countries are not ‘illegal migrants’ – they are refugees, and are not only entitled to humane treatment, but deserve a fast track to citizenship so that they have one less thing to worry about. Elementary decency (obviously lacking among Congress and IUML members) demands nothing less.

    3) Far from violating the ‘fundamental rights to life and equality’, the CAA upholds both. It enables the refugees to live a dignified life in India – and it upholds equality by incorporating all the religious communities of the refugees, (assuming that there are no Jewish refugees from Afghanistan, Pakistan and Bangladesh – which I think is the case.)

    Finally – and this is a point that the BJP should stress – granting citizenship makes it easier for refugees to leave the North East and settle in other parts of India. So long as they don’t have Indian citizenship, they are bound to worry about being deported back to Bangladesh, and thus will tend to live near the border – ex: in the North-East. Once they have citizenship, the fear is gone and they can settle all over the country just as easily as the rest of us.

    In short, the CAA deserves our total support.
