'We Firmly Support CAA'

We, the expatriate Hindus and other religious and ethnic minorities of Bangladesh, living around the globe fully support the Citizenship Amendment Act (2019) passed by the Parliament of India. This is a humanitarian act towards humanity.

The horror of partition, that was forced on the innocent Hindus and other non-Muslim populations who lived in the east and west of the Indian subcontinent in 1947, continues to haunt them through various forms of discrimination in Bangladesh, Pakistan and Afghanistan. The Liaquat-Nehru Pact of 1950 – through which refugees were to be allowed to return to dispose of their property, rescue abducted women and children, recover looted property, un-recognize forced religious conversions, and confirm minority rights – was never realized.

Not only that, in India, Hindu refugees from East Pakistan and later from Bangladesh had to hide and forge documents to become citizens of India. Through this Act, India has partially fulfilled its duty to the millions of non-Muslims from Bangladesh, Pakistan and Afghanistan who had to flee to India in recent years, but could not claim their rights in India. CAA has given them the right.

We also want to remind that close to 20 million Hindus, Buddhists and Christians still live in Bangladesh. These populations want to remain in their motherland Bangladesh with security and dignity. Their presence there creates a potential that Bangladesh could become a more tolerant nation where militant Islam would not find a stronghold. We hope the Indian Government will continue to work for the wellbeing of the beleaguered non-Muslim population of Bangladesh as they work with others to provide a bulwark against Islamic extremism in the Indian subcontinent.

Thank you.
