THE CITIZENSHIP AMENDMENT ACT 2019 (CAA)AND NATIONAL REGISTER OF CITIZENS (NRC):THE CUTENESS LAW IN INDIA

Naresh Kumar.

Abstract
India is a nation of secularity, freedom, and stability. This could be the only nation in the world to support the slogan of 'Unity in diversity.' Maybe this is why many people from different countries want Indian citizenship.The word citizenship means that every society or State in which a person is enjoying full membership; it has civil and political rights.It may be defined as an individual 's legal connection with a particular State expressed by committing his or her allegiance to the State and performing duties such as paying taxes, serving in the armed forces in need of services, observing national values etc.The Citizenship (Amendment) Act, 2019 is an act passed on 11 December 2019 by the Parliament.The CAA of 2019 amended the 1955 Citizenship Act allowing Indian citizenship to Hindu, Sikh, Buddhist, Jain ,Parsi and Christian religious minorities that fled from Pakistan, Bangladesh and Afghanistan 's neighbouring Muslim majorities prior to December 2014 on the basis of the "religious persecution or fear of religious persecution."The law excludes Muslims, however. In six years, the migrants will obtain Indian citizenship easily. The amendment also eased the residence requirement for these migrants to be naturalized from 11 to 5 years.For almost two months now, the CAA has been in the news and even today, they hog newspapers. Protests against and in favour of the bill spread across the country, while in South Delhi, ShaheenBagh became some kind of iconic protest.At first sight, the law can seem discriminatory and unconstitutional, but there is no closer examination of this accusation. The provision does not violate Article 14, which can require the listing of rules.The claim that the Act is against secularism and violates the basic framework of the Constitution is a command of language rather than legal justification. Only in the absence of legislative authority or in breach of any constitutional clause shall a statute be invalidated.The land is not present, so no national statute is exclusive to this House and no constitutional requirements are violated by this amendment.The protests are failing and Modi and Shah can carry on with their two-tier citizenship plans, and we should be prepared to deal with certain consequences which will change Indian society and its relations regionally and worldwide forever.The nationalism has defined itself through the richness of identity that determines what it means to be an Indian. The National Anthem of India says, "Punjab, Sindh, Gujrat, Maratha, Dravid, Utkal, Banga" ,not Hindu, Muslim, Sikh.When freedom fighters fought against the British, they did not let their intention and unity shift in religious columns.CAA 's impact on the Indian economy is also diversified. The greatest impact is that we already have an unfortunate disappointment with the Islamic nations with which we have close business and cultural connections.The United States, with which India has formed relations for decades, also shows some incredulity in this Act.After the dilution of Article 370 in August, US senators have challenged India 's actions. India faces losing friendly relations and trust with its major Allies.Indian diplomacy works twice as hard to explain what CAA really is to the world! Free Asian countries account for almost 50% of India's exports.Our cheap labor is important for the world, but in many countries , public opinion is not opposed. Let us not fool ourselves that economic rationalism is more important for leaders to preserve themselves.But our people, the citizens, are the most important and significant element. Where can India effectively handle dissidents? Too many people can't be placed in a detention centre. They target Muslims today, so who is next for the BJP?Many minorities today think about this on the table. So any question needs to be investigated and addressed in law so that the judgments are not affected by any group or caste. Antonio Gramsci has said, “In order to govern, all s
