CAA: Assam Finance Minister Sarma said – difficult to prove religious persecution for citizenship

Minister Sarma said that there are three criteria to apply for obtaining citizenship under CAA. The first of these is that the applicant be Hindu, Jain, Parsi, Christian, Sikh or Buddhist. Secondly, the applicant should be originally from Pakistan, Bangladesh and Afghanistan and third is to have proof of living in India before 31 December 2014. He said that apart from this, religious persecution is not a criterion for citizenship.

Sarma explained the reason behind this and said that how can anyone prove that he has been tortured on religious grounds. This is not possible. If a person wants to prove this, then he will have to return to the country concerned and obtain documents related to harassment from the police. In such a situation, how will any country be ready to believe that it has been or has been persecuted on religious grounds.
