SAD appreciates NDA govt’s decision to bring Citizen Amendment Bill for clearance in Parliament

Chandigarh, Dec 8 (UNI) The Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) on Sunday appreciated the NDA government’s decision to bring the Citizen Amendment Bill for clearance in the Parliament on Monday, saying a long pending demand of the party had been accepted but simultaneously urged that the Bill "should cover all persecuted people irrespective of religion".
The party said keeping in view the country’s socialistic, secular and democratic credentials as well as humanitarian principles, Muslims should not be excluded from the Bill on the basis of religion.
A decision to this effect was taken at a meeting of the party’s core committee which was presided over by SAD president Sukhbir Singh Badal at Badal village in Muktsar. The meeting appreciated the Citizen Amendment Bill (CAB) unreservedly and said the NDA government had fulfilled the demand of the SAD as well as all minorities including Sikhs, Hindus, Jain, Budhists, Parsis and Christians who had fled religious persecution in Pakistan, Afghanistan and Bangladesh and taken refuge in India.
