India: MP government gives citizenship to Pakistani Hindu refugees

Bhopal(MP, India): The Shivraj government of Madhya Pradesh has given citizenship certificates to Hindus who became refugees after facing persecution from neighboring countries.

Addressing the media today, State Home Minister Narottam Mishra said that 6 Hindu refugees living in Madhya Pradesh were handed over a certificate of Indian citizenship under the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA).

The Hindu refugees who got citizenship are Nandlal (Bairagadh Bhopal), Amit Kumar (Bairsia Road, Bhopal), Arjun Das (Mandsaur), Jairam Das (Mandsaur), Narayan Das (Mandsaur), and Soushalya Bai (Mandsaur).

Home Minister Narottam Mishra said after handing over the certificate that all these people will now be able to enjoy a life of dignity and basic rights as citizens of the country. The Congress and other parties had spread a lot of confusion and fear in the country against this (CAA) historic law of the Modi government.

The Citizenship (Amendment) Act, 2019 was passed by the Parliament of India on 11 December 2019. It amended the Citizenship Act, 1955 by providing a pathway to Indian citizenship for persecuted religious minorities from Afghanistan, Bangladesh and Pakistan who are Hindus, Sikhs, Buddhists, Jains, Parsis, or Christians, and arrived in India before the end of December 2014.
