New Delhi, Aug 24: With the scenario in the war-torn Afghanistan getting worse by the day, India has launched missions to evacuate its citizens and others in need from the country.
Union Minister, Hardeep Singh Puri said recently that the developments in Afghanistan are the reason why the enactment of the Citizenship Amendment Act is necessary.
“Recent developments in our volatile neighbourhood and the way Sikhs and Hindus are going through a harrowing time are precisely why it was necessary to enact the Citizenship Amendment Act,” Puri said in a tweet.
Experts that OneIndia spoke with say that it is time to start implementing the CAA now at least for those persecuted minorities staying in India. It is the right time to give a message to the international community that this is the only country where people who are persecuted can get refuge.
