Home Minister Amit Shah took to X and said that PM Modi has delivered on another commitment. He further said that these rules will now enable minorities persecuted on religious grounds in Pakistan, Bangladesh and Afghanistan to acquire citizenship in our nation.

The CAA provides a path to Indian citizenship for undocumented migrants belonging to six religious minorities (Hindu, Sikh, Buddhist, Jain, Parsi and Christian) from Pakistan, Bangladesh and Afghanistan who entered India before 2015. Critics argue that it discriminates against Muslims and violates the secular principles of the Constitution of India.

On Friday, India deported seven Rohingya immigrants to Myanmar for alleged illegal entry into India.
