  • CAA’ will honour the helpless migrants: Sakshi Maharaj

    Published on January 9, 2020

    New Delhi : Amid ongoing protests against the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) 2019 across the country, ‘Nishwarth Kadam’ President Parmod Raghav organised a comprehensive workshop for thousands of Pakistani refugees living at Majnu Ka Tila on Wednesday. The aim of this workshop is to give proper information on how this law will help them get the Indian citizenship.
    Bharatiya Janata Party, MP Sakshi Maharaj, Former DCW chairperson Barkha Shukla Singh, Supreme Court Advocate and many senior prominent social activists participated in this workshop and gave appropriate knowledge about migrants. Supreme Court advocate presented the legal part of the Act.

    Addressing media persons, MP Sakshi Maharaj said that the new law only offers citizenship. If someone spreads rumours that this will impact the citizenship of any cast or community, then it’s not true. Our government is working for all communities. CAA provides thousands of migrants, which have come from Pakistan, Bangladesh and Afghanistan and are living in India without proper documents, a good life.
    Many Pakistani Hindu migrants are happy and have shared their views on this new law. Gita is one of them and she said, we are happy and thanks Mr. Narendra Modi for this law. Now we and our children live here with honour and pride. I hope those who are opposing this law will understand our pain very soon.  I have been living here for the last seven years. We built new home here but didn’t get the identity. Now we are recognized as an Indian citizen. We request government and local body authority to give us Indian citizenship as soon as possible. So, our children can get admission in school. Now not a single school give our children admission. Also government provides us basic amnesties for better life. We request Hindu, Muslim, Sikh and Christian brothers and sisters to stop opposing this law. We have got a new life, so don’t obstruct this.
