This Bill must be withdrawn
This Bill is violative of the fundamentals of the Indian Constitution
The preamble, citizenship provisions (Article 5 to 11) and the section on fundamental rights underline the fundamentals of equality regardless of gender, caste, religion, class, community or language. This Bill violates all of them.
This Bill is not a mere change in the statute but is a law that will fundamentally alter the character of the Indian Republic.
“The basic idea of India has been violated in the bill. Those who believe that religion should determine nationhood… that was the idea of Pakistan, they created Pakistan,” said #ShashiTharoor on #CitizenshipAmendmentBill
India sends most migrants to Islamic countries in the Gulf and ‘Christian’ counties in Europe and North America. How will it feel if they stop accepting Hindu migrants and stop giving them citizenship? #CitizenshipAmendmentBill
CitizenshipAmendmentBill is unfortunate for d country. Unable to understand as to why d present Govt is interested in unrest in d country. If it is passed in Parliament due to the majority of d ruling party, it will be a disaster for d country. Media/Press to play a democratic role
Being the largest democratic country, how can we pass accept the #CitizenshipAmendmentBill?
Why are Muslims being excluded? This bill is a grave violation of the Constitution and it’s an effort to turn India into a religion-based State.

All this while, we were protesting and resisting to save India from turning into a ‘Hindu Pakistan’. But now it looks like the day is not far when we will turn into a ‘Hindu Israel’. #CitizenshipAmendmentBill @BJP4India is reviving Jinnah’s two-nation theory, and trying to divide the nation on religious lines.
The proposed #CitizenshipAmendmentBill is a violation of Article 14 and 21, and, if passed, will be disrespect towards the Gandhi and Ambedkar. –

The #CitizenshipAmendmentBill is an assault on the Indian Constitution. It tells the world that India discriminates based on religion. It tells India’s 200 million Muslims we don’t care what you think about this shitty bill. Indians of all faiths must oppose this monstrosity!
Kudos to Union cabinet led by PM
@narendramodi ji for clearing Citizenship Amendment Bill.
Sukhbir Singh Badal
Grateful to PM @narendramodi ji led Union cabinet for approving the #CitizenshipAmendmentBill to grant citizenship to lakhs of persecuted Sikhs, Hindus & other religious minorities who fled Pakistan, Bangladesh & Afghanistan to take refuge in India. The move is deeply appreciable

Battle lines clearly drawn on #citizenshipamendmentbill. BJP MP from Gorakhpur Ravi Kishen says India is a country of 100 crore Hindus. RJD’s Manoj Jha says India is not Israel & the government must not try to convert India into Israel. Does the Govt have numbers in #RajyaSabha?

Popular Front condemns Cabinet approval of Citizenship Amendment Bill #CitizenshipAmendmentBill #CitizenshipBill
The #CitizenshipAmendmentBill is an insult to Article 14 of the Constitution that gives right to equality to citizens and non citizens. All in the name of national security #Travesty
Just as our nation was uplifted by our struggle for independence, and ennobled by our Constitution that allowed us to chart a path admired by the world, it has been debased and diminished today, by the government’s #CitizenshipAmendmentBill2019. #Rethink
