900 scientists & scholars oppose CAB, 2019

Scientists from many of the country's leading research institutions,have strongly protested the Modi govt's proposed Citizenship Amendment Bill.

Sabrangindia 09 Dec 2019

In the statement released on Sunday late night, the scholars argue that "The use of religion as a criterion for citizenship" would mark a "radical break" with the "idea of India that emerged from the independence movement." They also state that "they fear, in particular, that the careful exclusion of Muslims from the ambit of the bill will greatly strain the pluralistic fabric of the country."  The scholars note that "it seems certain to us" that the bill "violates ... [the] ... spirit" of the constitution and so they "call for the immediate withdrawal of the bill."

In the past few months, members of the  scientific and broader academic community have repeatedly felt compelled to issue public statements to voice their discontent with the government's policies.

Here is the full text of this statement:

Statement on the Proposed Citizenship Amendment Bill

"We are a group of Indian scientists and scholars.

" We are issuing this statement in our personal capacity as concerned citizens to express our dismay at the reported plans to table the Citizenship Amendment Bill 2019 in the parliament. We do not have access to the exact text of the current version of the Bill. Our statement is based on media reports and the text of the previous version of the Bill that was passed by the Lok Sabha in January 2019. Nevertheless, we feel compelled to issue this statement already at this point of time in view of the reports that the Bill may be tabled in parliament early next week and may be taken up for voting in both houses soon after.

"We understand that the Bill seeks to grant citizenship to Hindus, Sikhs, Buddhists, Jains, Parsis and Christians from Afghanistan, Bangladesh and Pakistan. The stated intent of the Bill is to provide refuge to persecuted minorities from neighbouring countries. While we support this laudable objective, we find it deeply troubling that the Bill uses religion as a legal criterion for determining Indian citizenship.

"The idea of India that emerged from the independence movement, and as enshrined in our constitution, is that of a country that aspires to treat people of all faiths equally. The use of religion as a criterion for citizenship in the proposed bill would mark a radical break with this history and would be inconsistent with the basic structure of the constitution. We fear, in particular, that the careful exclusion of Muslims from the ambit of the Bill will greatly strain the pluralistic fabric of the country.

"We note that article 14 of the Indian constitution prohibits the State from denying “to any person equality before the law or the equal protection of the laws within the territory of India.” While it is the job of legal experts to determine whether this draft bill violates the letter of the constitution, it seems certain to us that it violates its spirit.

"For the reasons mentioned above, we call for the immediate withdrawal of this bill and as its replacement request for appropriate legislation that will address the concerns of refugees and minorities in a non-discriminatory manner.

It is left to be seen whether this diverse and mounting opposition and criticism in any way tempers a government clear on bludgeoning through and debate or dissent.
