Union cabinet clears Citizenship (Amendment) Bill



The Union Cabinet cleared the contentious Citizenship Amendment Bill for Parliament to take over.

The Bill is now likely to be tabled in the Lok Sabha for clearance.

The Parliament is likely to take up the Citizenship Amendment Bill next week.

The Citizenship Bill seeks to grant citizenship to all non-Muslim refugees from Pakistan, Bangladesh and Afghanistan if they faced religious persecution in these neighbouring countries.
