While the Citizenship Amendment Act also called as CAA is being defamed for being biased towards few communities, In reality it is very far from that, Muslims that are citizen of India will not be affected in any manner, neither it changes any previous features of the Constitution, it just allows minorities such as Sikh, Hindu, Jain, Parsi and Christian from the three neighbouring countries(Bangladesh, Pakistan and Afganistan) to get easy access to Indian Citizenship.
You must be wondering how such noble act is being targeted, well sadly that is how “Politics and Politician” work in this country, many leaders of the opposing party has taken an active part in pumping out false claims and twisted facts to polarise a certain ethnic group that in this case are Muslims, to believe that this CAA is evil and will take away their right to be citizen of India, In an attempt to create a Nationwide strike or protest so they can throw the Ruling party out of power.
