Citizenship Amendment Bill: What is it and why is it contentious | OneIndia News

The Citizenship Amendment Bill has been a controversial piece of legislation that the govt has been seeking to bring in.

The Bill proposes to give shelter to religious minorities - mainly Hindus, Sikhs, Parsis, Christians, Buddhists and Jains - from countries neighbouring India.

This Bill has been opposed on grounds that it differentiates among citizens on the basis of religion.
