Termination of the Citizenship Amendment Act 2019 (CAA)

This petition is directed to the Supreme Court of India and the United Nations regarding the unconstitutional act, namely the 'Citizenship Amendment Act' which was passed on 2nd of December by the Lok Sabha followed by the votes of Parliamentarians in the Rajya Sabha. The implementation of this bill violates the very idea of the Indian constitution's Article 14 which states  "The State shall not deny to any person equality before the law or the equal protection of the laws within the territory of India."

This Bill claims to grant citizenship to non-muslim refugees from countries such as Pakistan, Bangladesh and Afghanistan on the basis of religious persecution in specific and rejects granting citizenship to Muslim refugees, Sri Lankans and Myanmarese. 

The reason the implementation of this bill is dangerous and catastrophic is that when NRC is implemented nationwide, we would have to prove our ancestry and if we aren't able to, we would be deemed as illegal citizens. The CAB would grant citizenship to non-muslims but not to the Muslims.

It would divide India on the basis of religion and history would repeat itself. I request you to stand with me for a secular India we have always known because we believe in it.
