Nonviolence Incorporation Expresses Worries over Discriminatory Bill in India

Over the past few days, Nonviolence Incorporation published a statement and strongly condemned the passing of a recent citizenship bill by the Indian government, for encouraging discriminatory behaviors against Muslim communities in this country. This bill offers Indian citizenship to all religious minorities that have fled their countries in fear of persecution and have lived in this country for at least five years. However, the exclusion of Muslims from this bill has sparked protests by many lawyers and activists, accusing the Indian officials of violating the constitution of this country and rooting for the marginalization of Indian Muslims and immigrants. According to reports, tens of people have been killed and injured in these protests, and damages have been inflicted on public properties. In the light of these events, Nonviolence Incorporation calls on the Indian government to modify the contents of the bill and be committed to ending this conflict.
