New Delhi: Popular Front of India General Secretary Anis Ahmed has filed a public interest litigation in the Supreme Court challenging the constitutional validity of the controversial declaration issued by the Home Ministry .
In which non-Muslim refugees from neighboring countries have been asked to apply for citizenship.
The rules of the Citizenship Amendment Act, 2 have not yet been enacted, and a May 8 gazette notification from the Interior Ministry called for citizenship applications from Hindu, Sikh, Jain, Christian and Buddhist refugees from Afghanistan, Pakistan and Bangladesh. They are currently residing in 9 districts of Gujarat, Rajasthan, Chhattisgarh, Haryana and Punjab.
The Popular Front of India has alleged that the MHA’s notification is an attempt to enforce the CAA through a back door. The PIL filed in the Supreme Court by Anis Ahmed has requested that the notification be withdrawn. Should be declared unconstitutional, discriminatory and illegal under Section 5 of the Constitution of India, as it prevents Muslims from acquiring citizenship by registering under Sections 2 and 3 of the Citizenship Act.
The PIL has also been asked to review the accuracy of the controversial gazette notification, as it has been issued against sections 3 and 4 of the Citizenship Act. The petition also seeks restraint from the central government on the pretext of “fraudulent use of power” under Section 4 of the Citizenship Act.
