Discriminatory CAA may compel apprehensive Muslims to convert

President Ram Nath Kovind gave assent to CAB making it into an Act

Discriminatory CAA may compel apprehensive Muslims to convert

NEW DELHI: Leaders from prominent Muslim bodies on Friday said the discriminatory Citizenship Amendment Act may force extremely apprehensive Muslims to convert, reported The New Indian Express.

The one-two punch of the NRC followed by the CAB is an an attempt to eradicate the identity of 200 million or so Muslims across the country.

Top Muslim organizations like Jamaat-e-Islami Hind (JIH), All India Muslim Majlis-e-Mushawarat (AIMMM) along with members of the civil society said that the political parties calling themselves to be so-called ‘secular’ let the Muslims down by favoring their vote in support of the “contentiousâ€� Bill that will destroy the secular and democratic tenets of the revered Constitution.

While addressing a joint conference, Salim Engineer, vice-president, Jamaat-e-Islami Hind also responded to a question on conversion of Muslims will be likely to happen because of this poisonously divisive and dangerous law.

Mr. Salim said, “Conversion cannot be ruled out. This law has to be seen together with NRC. When a lot of genuine citizens won’t have documents to get through NRC, as we saw in Assam, everybody except Muslims will manage to escape that because of CAA. At that time, a lot of Muslims may think they too would have escaped the trauma if they were non- Muslims.â€� 

President Ram Nath Kovind gave assent to the Citizenship (Amendment) Bill, 2019 on Thursday night, making it into an Act.

Before becoming a law, the CAB was passed by both Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha to provide Indian nationality to Hindus, Christians, Sikhs, Parsis, Jains and Buddhists fleeing persecution in Pakistan, Afghanistan and Bangladesh with a cut-off date of December 31, 2014.

Agra, Dec 15 (IANS) Fearing spill over effect from Aligarh to Agra, district authorities here have made elaborate security arrangements to foil any trouble in view of the opposition to the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA).

Senior police officials have been visiting sensitive spots, led flag marches and deployed additional forces in areas identified as the hot spots. The security around historical monuments has been adequately beefed up, according to the officials.

"Tourists continue to pour in large numbers and there is absolutely no fear of any tension," an official said.

The number of visitors at the Taj Mahal crossed 30,000 on Saturday. Due to winter holidays the rush of domestic tourists, especially students from all parts of the country is high, according to tourist guide Ved Gautam.

Life in the city continues to remain peaceful, though there were some fears that trouble could break out here, if a section of the population chose to demonstrate.

The local Congress leaders have been critical of the amendments to the Act, but their failure to mobilise people against the Modi government, has come as a relief to the Yogi government in the state.
