Jamaat condemns the passing of CAB in Lok Sabha

December 10, 2019


New Delhi: The President of Jamaat-e-Islami Hind, Syed Sadatullah Hussaini has condemned the passing of CAB in the Lok Sabha. In a communique to the media, the Jamaat chief said: “We condemn the passing of the Citizenship Amendment Bill in the Lok Sabha. We feel that the bill is an outcome of a communal mindset; it is both biased and discriminatory. As the bill envisages granting citizenship to all foreign immigrants coming from Afghanistan, Bangladesh, and Pakistan except Muslims, it is violative of the cherished “diversity” found in our country and the core values of our Constitution. Differentiating the persecuted aspirants of citizenship based on religion is not only against the basic structure of the constitution but also against humanity and fundamental human values.


Syed Sadatullah said: “It is highly regrettable that many other political parties besides the BJP are supporting the legislation. We urge them to reconsider their opinion and oppose it in the Rajya Sabha. This bill is already causing international repercussions that are bound to increase over time. By ignoring the plight of Muslim minorities in countries like Srilanka and Burma, the CAB fails the test of its own logic and shows our country bowing before the forces of bigotry and Islamophobia.


We appeal to all justice-loving citizens of our country to reject the CAB. Jamaat-e-Islami Hind will continue to oppose the CAB using all legal and democratic means at its disposal. We hope the non-BJP political parties will understand the dangerous consequences of CAB and oppose it in the Upper House of Parliament. This is a fight for justice and preserving the soul of our country”.
