Drawbacks of CAA And NRC
CAA (Citizenship Amendment Act, 2019):
- All religious minorities are not protected in the bill and do not apply to all neighbours.
- The law violates Article 14 of the Constitution, guarantees equality right for foreigners and citizens, and the secularism principle enshrined in the Constitution preamble.
- The CAB will not apply to the areas under the Sixth Schedule of the Constitution, which deals with the Autonomous Tribal Areas in Meghalaya, Assam, Mizoram, and Tripura.
- The government finds it difficult to distinguish between the illegal migrants and the persecuted.
- This act can worsen our bilateral relations with neighbouring countries where religious oppression has occurred.
- People who appeared on the first list, published on 1 January 2018, did not find their names on the second.
- The former President of India's family is also not listed.
- It will be difficult to verify all members physically who are not present on the list.
- Detention and deportation camps are not a good option for a democratic country like India.
