about the stories that matter. a bill that grant citizenship residency rights along religious lines in india has prompted widespread protests i debate on social media for me ok and i'm really good so maybe look at the citizenship amendment bill some of your thoughts we have twitter and the live chat and you could be on the story. thousands of undocumented immigrants living in india would be granted a polish way to legal residency and citizenship under the citizenship amendment bill but the legislation is remarkable for who it leaves out the bill was crafted by the ruling bharatiya janata party or b j p it extends rights to followers of six religions who came to india from bangladesh pakistan and afghanistan before the end
of twenty fourteen that muslims who came to india in similar circumstances are not eligible people protested soon after the bill passed the lower house of parliament last week strikes were held across northeastern india student a women's groups in among those demonstrating against the proposals the bill has also split opinion online supporters of the bill say the b j p m prime minister narendra modi have taken a bold stand to protect non muslims who fled persecution in their home country but others say the bill is a political risk that may backfire on the beat. j p before elections due to go ahead in april or may for id for look at the bill we're joined from new delhi by common pal joy he is editor in chief of east mojo that's a digital news platform he has reported extensively from north eastern india raju as an independent journalist and writer she joins us from mumbai some result but the stars are is chief advisor and spokesperson for the all us some students union
which led protests against the bill he joins us from doha team and in new delhi we have swadeshi saying he is a former national vice president of the b j y m s the youth wing of the ruling b j p he's now an assistant professor at delhi university hello everybody really good to have you here let me show our audience what this bill looks like it's not much to look at have to tell you this citizen ship amendment bill twenty nine his page one his page to and and then we're done comma as you've been on packing this for your. resists for your subscribers who are following this citizenship bill what are you telling them it's can you simply explain it. you know as far as the citizenship amendment bill is concerned it is very simple i mean if you look at it in a plain and simple we need jobs citizenship to people who are non muslims who
are you know induce well secured or karsies or following the sikh religion work with us you did in countries which i mean about india they will be granted citizenship it's as easy as that but mostly they're muslims when so this isn't your program will not be granted to keep it simple that is how it is. i just want to show you what happened when this bill was passed in the lower house there was uproar havoc. and believe me i may say my dear if there are any migrants who are the victims of persecution anywhere in the country they can apply for indian citizenship and after that they will be able to live in any state of the country like any other indian citizen their responsibility is on the entire country and not just one state if you are not you can do they see big. problems for everybody.
because at that really we wanted to go ahead with the bill. it's a divisive bill one politician says what our community talking about almost exact same words are being used this is a tweet from ten moira he would says this is citizenship amendment bill is a direct attack on the concept of equality that's in chimed in the constitution and an attempt to intensify communal antagonisms between the bengali hindus and muslims rather break this down for us in terms of being an attack on the constitutional principles. well malik i think you are missing the to decide absolutely guide because just months before the general elections the government is trying to do so for the rise issues and mobilize the majority voice because this is an attack on the indian constitution and the principle of because indian constitution does not allow for discrimination in citizenship to
a true religion jane here you have citizenship granted to citizens from pre country from the base of the bridge and are just a week before the biggest possible lower house fly is going to read the protests from the north you say to assemble and and the government policy has been to before going is if you talk about persecution of minorities then why under clinton today means you are discriminating on the basis of pridgen if you are really concerned about pussy good minorities why not look to the neighboring countries like a saw that i am and these are being prosecuted wearing us having protected on the other side said the scale of the sentence i will i'm going to make a point that they should appoint ms indian constitution is a living document and under article three sixty eight indian constitution again parliament has all the right minded and constitution and dislike of america and you cannot and meant that will be of the can cause. and it started for in the form comics of the golden gate also and constitution about supposed right to quality is
right to cut a deal with and to place imposed if the should of just as it did because equally unequal and equally those who was a secret could go to what educated those who were abused they would be given the r.t. and this is our government of india has done subject to amendment bill i too was going to sing at the mill i did business not a single line in the indian constitution that out for discrimination on the basis of religion they knew to move it or turn it on villages or think it is a good new model community middle of the morning if this condition policy all hard to get sixteen million people because if you look at you and i don't but that and. now i'm just going to stop you for a second asco free sixty eight article sixteen can we do this conversation without all of the articles this talk about the broader principles so what ash i'm thinking about you p j p the voting party in india this bill this is just it bill has got a lot of blowback people are really upset even your allies other parties are upset
with you why. look we have to see this billion totality event how did years we in the country fuse in a secluded communities from iran and other parts of the world now in the modern set of you need a legal status for defuses for a prosecutor population and in the last twenty years we have seen that many persecuted communities from different part of what is basically from of gonna get on and bangladesh they have come in india so we have to differentiate between persecuted people and those were coming for economic benefit there is a difference between both of them and we should really come those were prosecuted.
