Protest against the CAA

.

A s citizens and members of the academic community, we write to register our protest at the recent enactment of the Citizenship (Amendment) Act, 2019

The act is discriminatory and violative of the basic structure of the Constitution. It is inconsistent with the cherished values of equality under law and secularism. It institutionalises preferential treatment based on religion, which is in direct conflict with the inclusive spirit on which our nation was formed. Additionally, the act is inconsistent with India’s international obligations under the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights as well as the inter­national law principle of non-refoulement of refugees, irrespective of caste, gender, race, religion, sexual orientation or political ideology.
