The Ministry of Home Affairs is likely to notify the rules for the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA). This comes a month after Union Home Minister Amit Shah said that the CAA would be implemented before the Lok Sabha elections this year.

The law makes getting Indian citizenship easier for Hindu, Sikh, Jain, Buddhist, Christian and Parsi refugees from Afghanistan, Bangladesh and Pakistan. This aims to give citizenship to non-Muslim migrants from these countries who came to India before December 31, 2014. After the law was passed in 2019, protests broke out in several parts of the country.

Last month, Amit Shah stated that no one can stop the CAA law.

This will be implemented before the elections…this is the law of the country, no one can stop it, this is set in stone, this is the reality.

According to PTI, Shah, while speaking at the ET Now-Global Business Summit in Delhi in February, asserted that CAA was an act of the country and assured the minorities that the law would not snatch away anyone’s citizenship.

The CAA is an act of the country…It will be notified before the polls. There should be no confusion around it. Minorities in our country, and especially our Muslim community, are being provoked…The CAA cannot snatch away anyone’s citizenship because there is no provision in the Act. The CAA is an act to provide citizenship to refugees who were persecuted in Bangladesh and Pakistan

At the same time, Amit Shah said that the law was promised by the Congress government. When the country was divided, minorities had to suffer. Congress assured the refugees that they were welcomed in India and would be provided with Indian citizenship, and now they are backing out.
