Mehbooba Mufti Hits Out At Central Govt Over Citizenship Amendment Bill

 

SRINAGAR, JAN 11: Former chief minister Mehbooba Mufti Friday hit out at the central government for the controversial citizenship (amendment) bill.

 

The PDP president took to her Twitter handle to criticise the government move that largely favours non-muslims, “Granting citizenship on the basis of religion is appalling and disgusting in equal measure. We are full of venom when it comes to Pakistan but are matching some of its policies in spirit,” she wrote.

 

She further said that although Pakistan was created on the basis of two-nation theory, the country however has changed its attitude towards minorities, “But even the country that was formed on the basis of two nation theory has changed its attitude towards minorities now . Temples have been declared as national heritage & approved the Hindu marriage bill.” She tweeted.

 

On January 8, the Lok Sabha passed  legislation that would grant citizenship to minority non-Muslim communities from neighboring countries.
