Home India Citizenship Amendment Act by Indian Government

Citizenship Amendment Act by Indian Government

People will appreciate that this amendment will apply to only prosecuted religious minorities of these countries and has no impact on the Indian Muslims

Hindu Council of Australia wholeheartedly supports a recent action taken by the Government of India to grant the citizenship of India to Hindus, Sikhs, Jains, Buddhist, Parsi and Christens from Pakistan, Bangladesh and Afghanistan who migrated before 1st Dec 2014.

The reason for inclusion of these communities is due to the religious persecution they face in those countries. This action meets a long-standing demand of the minority communities from neighbouring countries who migrated to India to avoid persecution due to their religion.

India has a long tradition to give shelter to people who have been prosecuted due to their religious belief starting from Syrian Christians, Parsi from Iran and Jews.  The decision of the Indian Government is entirely in line with this tradition of welcoming religiously prosecuted minorities.
