The tweet by BJP Karnataka comes at a time when Congress party has been constantly launching attacks on the BJP for keeping the Muslim community out of the perview of the amended Citizenship law. Congress and other opposition parties have been protesting against the BJP for discriminating on the basis of religion.
The amended citizenship bill 2019 will grant Indian citizenship to non-Muslim refugees from Pakistan, Bangladesh, and Afghanistan. Through this bill, Indian citizenship will be provided to the members of Hindu, Sikh, Buddhist, Jain, Parsi and Christian communities, who have come from the three countries to India till December 31, 2014, to put an end to them being treated as illegal immigrants in the country. The Bill was passed by the Lower House of the Parliament earlier this year but lapsed with the term of the previous Lok Sabha during the first term of the PM Narendra Modi government in the Centre.
