The Citizenship Amendment Bill 2019 violates Article 14 of the Constitution and against its basic feature. It discriminates persons on the basis of religion. It’s an act to demonize 200 million Muslims in India. We condemn Citizenship Amendment Bill 2019,” he tweeted.
“It’s an anathema to the Constitution and if passed will be a black spot in the Parliamentary history of India,” he had tweeted.
“During the passage of the Bill, wrong facts, misleadingly information, wrong logic were produced by the HM. History was distorted. The idea behind the bill is to stoke fear in Muslims and divide the nation,” he added.
