He said that these changes should have happened long ago in the National interest. India has enacted the Citizenship Amendment Act by adopting soft approach. With the enactment of this law, Hindus, Christians, Sikhs, Jains, Parsis and Buddhists who have taken refuge in India from neighboring countries after being tortured in the name of religion would get citizenship of India. Today, efforts are being made to spread confusion in the country on the Citizenship Amendment Act. But I want to say firmly that this law is made to give, not to take away citizenship of anyone.
