I would have become Begum of Khan Tiger who had come to kidnap me. If my mother and I could not attend the burqa that night from Dinajpur. I used to study in class 7. What should Amit Shah tell you? Today how many people have blessed you and Narendra Modi. The Rajya Sabha MP said, “Where will we go if India does not give us a place?” Why won’t anyone think? How often will we be homeless? My father in his country, sometimes in Narayanganj, sometimes Dhaka, sometimes in Dinajpur. How often will we change our homes? How often do we have to live the life of a refugee?

The BJP leader said, ‘I am surprised to see that the opposition is laughing at this issue … making fun of every comment … even senior women leaders … I see their gestures … very sad … . Very disappointing. ‘ Explain that the Citizenship Amendment Bill has been passed by the Parliament. Now this bill will go to the President and will become law after his signature. Responding to the opposition’s questions in the Rajya Sabha on the Citizenship Amendment Bill, Home Minister Amit Shah explained why Muslims were not included in this bill? He said that Muslims are majority in Bangladesh, Pakistan and Afghanistan, so the chances of persecution are very low. The Home Minister said that the Opposition is not praising the inclusion of people of 6 religions but focuses its attention solely on Muslims. Significantly, the Leader of the Opposition Ghulam Nabi Azad had asked the question that if India has more neighbors, why only Bangladesh, Pakistan and Afghanistan were included in it. He had also asked that the Muslims were also tortured by the Taliban in Afghanistan, but why they were not given a place in the Bill. The Home Minister responded by asking whether Muslims in Bangladesh, Pakistan and Afghanistan can be considered a minority? He said, “Islam is the main religion of those countries, then the chances of being tortured are very less.”
