Art. 14 of the consitution says " The State Shall not deny any person equality before law or equal protection of the laws within the territory of India".
Citizenship amendment bill, which clearly states that the minorities from Afghanistan, Pakistan and Bangladesh i.e; Parsis, Christians, Hindus,Sikhs,Buddhists and Jains to be eligible for citizenship and not mentioning Muslims which itself is considered as a minority in our country and being a division based on Religion, it led to more controversies in the country.
But what is citizenship? How is it given ?
The Citizenship Act, 1955 regulates who may acquire Indian citizenship and on what grounds. A person may become an Indian citizen if they are born in India or have Indian parentage or have resided in the country for a period of time, etc. However, illegal migrants are prohibited from acquiring Indian citizenship. An illegal migrant is a foreigner who: (i) enters the country without valid travel documents, like a passport and visa, or (ii) enters with valid documents, but stays beyond the permitted time period.
