Muslims unwanted

Guilt (Issue II/2019)

The Indian House of Commons has passed a law that allows non-Muslim immigrants to acquire citizenship. Hundreds of thousands of Hindus, Christians and Sikhs will benefit from it. The condition is that they have been living in the country for six years. However, the law should not apply to Muslims in the same situation. The move sparked protests in the state of Assam but not because of the discrimination against the Muslims, but because immigrants would find it easier to gain Indian citizenship.
