"It violates the spirit of the Constitution" . In essence, the government is in dispute, the decision to enact a measure that will facilitate the acquisition of the citizenship of irregular migrants from Pakistan, Afghanistan and Bangladesh belonging to different confessions, but not that muslim. Among the criticisms levelled at the measure of those who sees it as a violation of the spirit of the indian constitution, to the extent that religion becomes a condition for the acquisition of citizenship. The authorities of the indian states of Assam and West Bengal have promised to protect the land rights of the indigenous peoples and of refugees in the midst of the protests against a new law that discriminates against muslims. In the state's North-Eastern Assam, a law scheduled to prevent the natives selling the land to non-indigenous people, said the finance minister Himanta Biswa Sarma. "This means that our land will be preserved for our people," he told reporters after the government approved the measure.
The opaque definition of "indigenous". But there is little clarity on the definition of indigenous in the State, where at the beginning of this year almost 2 million people have been excluded from the register of citizens. In addition, nearly two-thirds of the land in the State, which borders muslim-majority Bangladesh, it is common ground, said Walter Fernandes, a senior member of the Centre for social research in the North-East, a reflection group. "When a large part of the land belongs to the State, it is not to sell or transfer that land," he said. "There are a number of definitions of indigenous peoples, including tribal, assamesi and others who live in the State for several decades. Therefore, it is not clear who will benefit from the law," he told the Thomson Reuters Foundation. The government of Prime Minister Narendra Modi says that the new law on the amendment of the citizenship aims to help minorities in non-muslim from Afghanistan, Bangladesh and Pakistan, who have fled to India before 2015, with a path to citizenship, an indian. But many indians believe that the law discriminate against muslims and violates the Constitution, a secular Country by making religion a test for citizenship.
Twenty-two died during the encounters with the police. India is not a signatory to the 1951 refugee Convention, which sets out the rights of refugees, and the responsibility of the State to protect them. Nor has a national law to protect the over 200,000 refugees, including tibetans, sri lankans, afghans, bengalis and rohingya from Myanmar. Ways, in the course of the event, said that his government has introduced reforms without religious bias. At least 22 people were killed during clashes with the police, while thousands of people took to the streets in indian cities to protest against the law, marking the greatest challenge to the leadership of the Ways when it came to power in 2014.
Who do not implement the law. Mamata Banerjee, the West Bengal chief minister, has said that it will implement the law on citizenship in the State. He said that his government will speed up the granting of land rights to tens of thousands of immigrants living in the State for almost fifty years. "They were granted titles to the exploitation of the land to migrants from Nepal and Bangladesh, which gives them an identity and a certain security, he emphasized, Fernandes - and this allows them to be considered legal."
