CAA unacceptable in its current form: YSRCP MLA

Must read

YSRCP MLA from Kurnool Hafeez Khan has said that party president and Chief Minister YS Jagan Mohan Reddy, during the past five years, mentioned hundreds of times that there will be no discrimination on the basis of religion, caste, party lines, or even region with respect to the social welfare programmes, law, and order or justice. “Therefore, YSRCP doesn’t accept Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) rules in its current format because we, on the floor of the Parliament, have sought amendments to the law so that it is acceptable to each and everyone. We should amend it in a way that we give the same rights to Hindus, Parsis, Jains, Sikhs, and Christians, as well as Muslims,” he said.

He added that CAA, later, can depend on NRC (National Register for Citizens) and NPR (National Population Register). In NRC or NPR, if an Indian Muslim is not able to prove his citizenship, then the CAA will not apply to him. However, if anyone from any other religion faces a similar situation, then CAA will be applicable and provide him protection. Today, somewhere within the system, there is a lot of distress within the Muslim community that they might be targeted through NRC / NPR and CAA will not be able to shield them. “So, we request the Central government to rethink and take everyone into confidence,” he said.
