Imran condemns passing of India's Citizenship (Amendment) Bill

Tuesday - December 10, 2019 12:26 pm , Category : WORLD
Islamabad, Dec 10 (IANS) Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan on Tuesday condemned the passing of India's controversial Citizenship (Amendment) Bill 2019, which seeks to give Indian citizenship to non-Muslim refugees from Pakistan, Bangladesh and Afghanistan, saying that it "violates all norms of international human rights law" with Islamabad.
 
In a tweet, Khan said: "We strongly condemn Indian Lok Sabha citizenship legislation which violates all norms of international human rights law and bilateral agreements with Pakistan.
 
"It is part of the RSS 'Hindu Rashtra' design of expansionism propagated by the fascist Modi govt."
 
Khan's remarks come after the draft legislation was passed in the Lok Sabha on Monday midnight after division of votes with 311 in its favour and 80 against it.
 
The Bill would now be moved in the Rajya Sabha on Tuesday to cross its final hurdle before becoming a law to provide Indian nationality to Hindus, Christians, Sikhs, Parsis, Jains and Buddhists fleeing persecution in Pakistan, Afghanistan and Bangladesh.
