The CAA, which was implemented to grant citizenship to persecuted minorities from Afghanistan, Bangladesh, and Pakistan who arrived in India before December 31, 2014, has been a subject of contentious debate due to its exclusion of Muslims. Afghanistan, Bangladesh, and Pakistan are all Muslim-majority countries.
