Sangh is using the permission of classification in #Article14 to state that the classification is constitutional. But they don't say what are the criteria for that classification.

#Article14 permits classification, so long as it is 'reasonable', but forbids class legislation.
A classification reasonable when

The classification is based upon intelligible differentia that distinguishes persons or things that are grouped from others that are left out of the group, and
The differential has a rational relation with the objective of the act.

Topic: The #NRC v #CAB Debate

Given the umpteen opinions and point of views surrounding NRC and CAB, I wanted to write a simple and neutral point of view on these 2 bills, covering pros & cons of the same.

#CABBill #NRC #RajyaSabha #LokSabha #AmitShah
Before I start. If any of you notice glaring errors or misjudgement in my thread, I'm more than happy to hear you. But let's keep the thread / replies civil.

#CABBill #NRC #RajyaSabha #LokSabha #AmitShah
Firstly, let's see what each bill stands for.

NRC - Now only limited to Assam focuses on deciding the citizenship of those living in #Assam by judging their residentship/presence (or that of their ancestors) before March 24, 1971.

Congress leader Adhir Ranjan Choudhury calls #CitizenshipAmendmentBill2019 regressive,anti-minority. @AmitShah hits back: says Bill not even .001%anti minority. Says will respond to every point raised by Congress but tells them not to `Walk Out' when he is responding. @IndiaToday
@AmitShah @IndiaToday TMC's Saugata Roy says #Constitution in danger. As MPs oppose, Prof Roy says: will you hit me now. Come hit me. Claims #CitizenshipAmendmentBill discriminatory.

Targets home minister @AmitShah says if this Bill is not stopped then his name will be taken along with Hitler & Ben Gurion (former Israel PM)

Of course Jesus broke the law, both religious and civic.

⚠️But *please* pay attention⚠️
@Paula_White is right in this:

Jesus did not break the law in being a refugee. NOR DOES ANY ASYLUM SEEKER. It is NOT a crime to seek safety under International Law!!!
Which is to say @Paula_White is right about Jesus not breaking the law in seeking safety in Egypt and WRONG about every brave soul seeking safety in America when she calls them “illegal”.
I invite everyone, including @Paula_White to repeat after me:

“Asylum Seeker means someone like me, only they need safety.”

Repeat this phrase until you are ready to do unto those needing safety as you would want someone to do unto you in the same position.
