Why 𝐂𝐀𝐀 alone ( CAA without NRC) is problematic?

Why 𝐂𝐀𝐀 alone ( CAA without NRC) is problematic?
πŸ›‘π‚π₯𝐚𝐒𝐦 𝟏 : Govt claims that 𝐂𝐀𝐀 is not discriminatory.
β˜‘Fact: 𝐂𝐀𝐀 grants citizenship on religious lines for the first time.The Constitution of India makes it clear that religion cannot be the criteria for citizenship.
So clearly it is discriminatory.
πŸ›‘π‚π₯𝐚𝐒𝐦 𝟐 : Govt says that the 𝐂𝐀𝐀 doesn’t have provision to take away citizenship. It is only to provide citizenship.
β˜‘Fact: Fair enough, but this is half-truth. They are not telling you that 𝐂𝐀𝐀 pertains to illegal migrants. Under Indian law, illegal migrants are not eligible for Citizenship in any case. So it means Under 𝐂𝐀𝐀 illegal non-Muslim migrants will get citizenship, but illegal Muslim migrants will not.
This is a form of discrimination.
πŸ›‘π‚π₯𝐚𝐒𝐦 πŸ‘ : Govt says that 𝐂𝐀𝐀 will protect minorities in 3 Muslim countries. In a very recent Speech, Home minister gave the example of a recent attack on Nankana Saheb Gurudwara in Pakistan. he said “Jo log 𝐂𝐀𝐀 ke against protest Kar Rahe hai vo bataae jo Sikh bhaiyo pe hamla Hua vo Bharat Nahi aaenge to Kaha jaaen.?”
β˜‘Fact : Again a False claim as the cut off date for 𝐂𝐀𝐀 is 31st December 2014. It means the minorities who enter in India after 2014 cannot be legalized under CAA.
πŸ›‘π‚π₯𝐚𝐒𝐦 πŸ’ :Govt says that 𝐂𝐀𝐀 is meant to fix the wrongs of partition.
β˜‘Fact: Then why Afghanistan with no link to partition is included in 𝐂𝐀𝐀. Afganistan was never part of India.
πŸ›‘π‚π₯𝐚𝐒𝐦 πŸ“ :𝐂𝐀𝐀 includes neighbouring countries.
β˜‘Fact : India shares border with 7 countries. Then why 𝐂𝐀𝐀 has included only 3 countries. Why Myanmar, Srilanka, Nepal, Bhutan, China are not included?
Note: Myanmar was part of British India till 1937.
πŸ›‘π‚π₯𝐚𝐒𝐦 πŸ” :Govt says that Muslims doesn’t face religious discrimination in Muslim majority countries and that’s why Govt has excluded them.
β˜‘Fact: Hindus, especially from lower castes, face persecution in India on daily basis, despite being in Majority.The same way Muslims in Pakistan can face other forms of persecution from regressive anti-blasphemy laws.
Example: Junaid Hafeez is a Pakistani university lecturer and graduate student who was convicted of blasphemy under Pakistan’s broad blasphemy laws and sentenced to death in December 2019. Minorities like Ahmadiyas and Hazaras face religious persecution in Pakistan and Afganistan.
πŸ›‘π‚π₯𝐚𝐒𝐦 πŸ• : Govt says that Minorities facing religious persecution will get citizenship under 𝐂𝐀𝐀.
β˜‘Fact: CAA doesn’t mention religious persecution. No details are given in 𝐂𝐀𝐀 about how the persecution will be proved.
Note: Intelligence Bureau has informed the Parliamentary committee that Individuals claiming religious persecution entered India decades ago and it is not possible to verify their claims now.
πŸ›‘π‚π₯𝐚𝐒𝐦 πŸ– : Govt says that Congress has also granted citizenship to the persecuted minorities. In 1971 Indira Gandhi has given citizenship to Bangladeshi immigrants.
β˜‘Fact: Yes, the citizenship act has been amended to accommodate immigrants from Bangladesh and on other occasions as well but it has never been amended on the religious lines. This is main point.
