Commitment by the BJP

The BJP national general secretary took to his Twitter account and said that the party was upholding India's tradition to shelter the persecuted in the neighbourhood.

"It was passed by the last Lok Sabha but couldn't reach Rajya Sabha and lapsed. A revised bill is coming. Upholding India's tradition to shelter the persecuted in the neighborhood," he tweeted.

The Union cabinet on Wednesday gave its nod to the bill which seeks to grant citizenship to non-Muslim refugees from Pakistan, Bangladesh and Afghanistan if they faced religious persecution there. "For all others about whom the bleeding hearts' are complaining, Indian citizenship laws are there. Naturalized citizenship is an option for others who legally claim Indian citizenship. All other illegals will be infiltrators. No country in the world accepts illegal migrants," he said.
