Opposition says Citizenship Amendment Bill violates the Constitution, but the government's strength in Lok Sabha ensures
Parlament updates: Rajya Sabha will debate the controversial Citizenship Amendment Bill on Wednesday after Lok Sabha passed the legislation that gives citizenship to non-Muslim minorities from three neighbouring countries.
Home Minister Amit Shah, in his reply to over six-hour-long debate in Lok Sabha, insisted that the Bill does not discriminate against Indian Muslims but aimed at protecting continued persecution of minorities in Afghanistan, Bangladesh, and Pakistan.
Opposition parties stood against the proposed law that would, for the first time, create a legal pathway to grant Indian nationality on the basis of religion.
