When asked about the protests which are happening all over the country against CAA, the official said, “We had anticipated protests, at least in the Northeast. But, the protests in Delhi happened due to the circulation of wrong information and rumours.”

Furthermore, when asked about the process of giving Indian citizenship to eligible refugees from Pakistan, Afghanistan and Bangladesh, the official said, “The ministry will employ a competent authority that will handle the applications of those who are going to apply for Indian citizenship and also the entire process will be digital. No one will get Indian citizenship automatically and one will have to prove his/her eligibility for the same through the documents mentioned in the rules.”

According to CAA, members of non-Muslim communities who have come from Pakistan, Afghanistan and Bangladesh till December 31, 2014, facing religious persecution there, will not be treated as illegal immigrants and will be given Indian citizenship.

And hence, citizens from all over India are protesting against CAA as according to them, this act is discriminatory in nature and against the the Indian constitution.
