A thread explaining the provisions pertaining to #Citizenship in India and some concerns regarding the #CAA2019:

#CitizenshipAmendmentAct

1/9
Citizenship of India can be acquired by Birth, descent, registration, naturalisation or incorporation of territory.

Any foreigner on becoming eligible can acquire citizenship by registration or by naturalisation irrespective of his country or community.

#CAA2019
#CAB2019

2/9
#CAA2019 enables foreigners of 6 minority communities from 3 countries to apply for citizenship on basis of religious persecution

It does NOT amend any existing legal provision which enables any foreigner to apply for Indian citizenship through registration/naturalisation.

@rahulelectra @onlyonenetra @BesuraTaansane Few inputa. Pls make your own conslusion after that.

1. BDs have been pouring in unabated since 75 yrs. Rest of India, this process stopped in 1948

2. BDs grabbed lands, fenced properties, burned down local Kachari Hindu communities and renders them homeless.

Thread#1
@rahulelectra @onlyonenetra @BesuraTaansane 2.(Contd) Kacharis are Local Hindu Tribes with their kingdom in Cachar and they find mention in Mahabharata. They opened their homes to the BDs on humanitarian grounds. BDs squatted, grabbed their lands, killed their cattles, raped their women, maimed their children.

Thread #2
@rahulelectra @onlyonenetra @BesuraTaansane 2. (Contd ) Today, Kacharis are a mere 25 families left in Cachar. All are BDs (Hindus + Muslims).

3. Congi Govt allowed this to happen. Vote Bank Politics

4. Indira Gandhi brought IMDT Act making Citizens liable to prove that X is a BD

The Narendra Modi-led NDA govt must control things before they spin out into something much bigger. There are three main worries the government is grappling with: @abhijitmajumder on #CABBill2019

@abhijitmajumder Telling friendly neighbours that you have persecuted #minorities is bad #diplomacy and cocking a snook at those who stood by you in protecting your #NationalSecurity interests — #CABBill2019 conveys that to #Afghanistan and #Bangladesh: @jayanthjacob

Okay. Have been reading JPC report and findings on #CAB2019

Whether it violates Constitution Article 14 & 25, the JPC holds that it does not. Their findings in pic below. 1/n
Could Bangladesh have been kept out of 3 identified countries to maintain Assam Accord? #CAB2019 2/n
On why persecuted religious minority from Sri Lanka and Myanmar not included-- their issue managed by SOP Dec 29 2011 (India has no national law on refugees nor did it ratify UN acts on refugees)
In BTW, try as I could, I have not yet been able to trace SOP

#CAB2019: Petition by Indian Union Muslim league challenging CAB will be filed in Supreme Court in a short while from now. @htTweets
Grounds raised in the petition:

Amendment Act discriminates on the basis of religion and consequently violates Article 14.

There is an unreasonable and arbitrary classification of countries

There are other religious minorities in the 3 countries which have been excluded.
No reason for exclusion of minorities from other countries.

Legislative intent as set out in statement of objects and reasons does not match the legislation.

The Act contravenes the principle of secularism and therefore violates basic structure of the Constitution.

Thread:
I am not religious. I struggle with faith. But I am a Bengali Muslim. That's my political identity. As researcher in Ahmedabad working with 2002 riot survivors, and in life in general my political subjectivity was shaped around the lived experience of this identity.
There is a role of my caste and class location in forming this political identity as well. Many can ignore but I can't escape it.
Today the Indian government passed the Citizenship Amendment Bill, which is rightly compared with Nuremburg race laws enacted by Hitler. #CAB2019
Though there is very little comparison on account of history of suffering, but after this new law 'Bengali Muslim' identity is going to be the most vulnerable community in the Indian nation-state after Kashmiri Muslims.
