Renowned historian and writer Ramachandra Guha has said that the Citizenship Amendment Act is ‘illegal, immoral and ill timed’. Guha said this in an interview given to NDTV.
” The Citizenship Amendment Act is ‘extremely illogica, immoral and ill-timed’. The minorities from Muslim majority countries-pakistan, bangladesh and Afghanistan- would get Indian citizenship and Muslims would be excluded from this. What about Tamils in Sri Lanka”, Guha asked.
” There is an economic crisis, there is a downturn, there is joblessness, agrarian distress and environmental degradation. The government should roll back the move and acknowledge the protests”, Guha said in the interview.
” Deepening majoritarianism and demonizing of Indian Muslims; attacks on Dalits, women and tribals; institutional decay and deepening environmental crisis. We are an environmental basket case”, he added.
