Don’t dent sec­u­lar­ism

The Times of India (New Delhi edition) - - All That Matters -

Swa­pan Das­gupta in his col­umn ‘Cit­i­zen­ship Bill aims to give dig­nity de­nied to Partition vic­tims in east’ (ATM, Oc­to­ber 6) ad­vo­cates in favour of Cit­i­zen­ship Amend­ment Bill. If the bill is passed by the Par­lia­ment, cit­i­zen­ship will be de­cided on the ba­sis of re­li­gion, which is against the spirit of sec­u­lar­ism of our Con­sti­tu­tion. The bill also has the po­ten­tial to make the in­dige­nous peo­ple of North­east mi­nori­ties in their own land. The gov­ern­ment should look for other ways to help the mi­grants.
