Today , on 8th January 2019 morning the people of the state of Assam came out to protest against the citizenship amendment bill 2016. The bill aims to provide citizenship to non-Muslim refugees from Afghanistan, Bangladesh, and Pakistan — Hindus, Sikhs, Buddhists, Jains, Parsis, and Christians – after six years of residence in India, instead of 12, even if they do not possess proper documents. This Bill has faced massive opposition in northeastern states, particularly Assam, after Prime Minister Narendra Modi declared their intention to get the bill passed in Parliament.
