Impossible to show religious proof of persecution under CAA: Assam Minister

The CAA is the burning issue in the nation for a month and the center took no back step on this and even passed the bill under parliament. But much to their shock, the Kerala Government appealed against this CAA in the supreme court and even shown some prominent articles in the constitution supporting their statement. One of them includes the violation of the basic fundamental right 'Secularism', as they say.

 
Taking inspiration from Kerala, many anti-CAA states filed petitions to review the bill passed at the parliament. In meanwhile Modi has no clue about what’s happening. Assam Finance Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma said under the Citizenship (Amendment) Act, it's impossible for someone to go back to their country and collect a copy of police report to show the proof of religious persecution. "Why would the police station...give that proof?" he added. However, the government will work out a process to verify their claims, Sarma further said.
 
Protests broke out in different parts of the country, including Assam against CAA which grants citizenship to Hindus, Sikhs, Jains, Parsis, Buddhists, and Christians facing religious persecution from Pakistan, Afghanistan, and Bangladesh and who came to India on or before December 31, 2014.
