    Over 2500 Pakistanis given Indian citizenship in last 6 years, claims minister


    [​IMG]
    India on Sunday claimed to have given citizenship to 2,838 Pakistani refugees in the last six years amid countrywide protests against the controversial Citizenship (Amendment) Act, 2019.

    Senior ruling party leader and Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman said, "in the last six years, as many as 2838 Pakistani refugees, 914 Afghan refugees, 172 Bangladeshi refugees including Muslims have been given Indian citizenship."

    "From 1964 to 2008, more than 4,00,000 Tamils [from Sri Lanka] have been given Indian citizenship," Sitharaman was quoted by Times of India as saying at 'Programme on Citizenship (Amendment) Act, 2019' in Chennai.

    The initiative is the Indian government's attempt to gather support for the discriminatory legislation.

    The Indian minister further said that till 2014 some 566 Muslims had migrated to India from Bangladesh and Afghanistan, claiming that the BJP government had granted close to 1,595 citizenships to Pakistani migrants and 391 to Muslims from Afghanistan between 2016-2018.

    "It was also during the same period in 2016, that Adnan Sami was given Indian citizenship," said the Indian minister. "This is an example."

    She further said that the people who had migrated from the region formerly known as East Pakistan (now Bangladesh), are still residing in various camps across India.

    "They are still there and it's been 50-60 years now. If you visit these camps, your heart will cry. The situation is the same with Sri Lankan refugees who continue to live in camps. They're barred from getting basic facilities," she said.

    India has been rocked by protests against the controversial citizenship law introduced by the Modi-led government at the backend of 2019. For many analysts, the protests have become a major challenge for the Indian government

    The law, which offers fast-track citizenship to non-Muslim nationals from three neighbouring countries, is the latest policy instituted by Modi's government that critics accuse of marginalising Muslims in the Hindu-majority nation.

    During his nearly six years in power, Modi's party has renamed places with Islamic-origin names, rewritten history textbooks to diminish or discredit the role of Muslim leaders, and stripped the Muslim-dominated region of Kashmir of its special autonomy.

    Modi has insisted the legislation will have no impact on Indian Muslims, however his party's 2019 election pledge to conduct a nationwide survey to identify illegal immigrants has raised fears among Muslims of becoming stateless, with no fast-track naturalisation option available to them.

    F#*K! When I opened this Topic & saw that picture on top of that Nirmala Sithara-ma-pa-whatsherface... It scared the sh!t out of me.

    I'm sure this hag hasn't ever had a Kodak moment, but that image is something out of a C-Grade Horror flick.

    How funny is this ridiculous womans fake concern for human rights.

    Not to mention the millions of muhajirs settling from the 1960's to present, and the thousands of Kashmri refugees across Azad Kashmir.

    They are probably those who have been languishing in India without official status for decades, now India accepted those people after putting them through Hell on Earth based on their nationality.

    They didn't do it because they love them, only to do PR against Pakistan. This fascist regime of Moodi is incapable of loving anything, even its own people are just pawns.

    If in India bangaldeshi and srilankan are living in camps in very bad condition then why not nirmala did provide them facilities from her treasury?
