Wrong to dub Citizenship Amendment Bill communal, unconstitutional / Firstpost
In Pakistan, Hindus, especially, are subjected to ethnic cleansing and targeted attacks. Just to give one example among scores, in February this year a temple was vandalised in Pakistan’s southern Sindh province by a mob that set fire to idols and three sacred books, including Bhagwad Gita and Guru Granth Sahib.
Another report says that around 5,000 Hindu families are forced to leave Pakistan each year facing “forced conversions”. Quoting a Pakistani newspaper, ANI reported that Hindu girls in particular are targeted to convert them to Islam.
The CAB says that since India is umbilically tied to these nations and the persecuted minorities take refuge in the land of their ancestors, it is only fair that they are given citizenship rights
