If no minority will be affected by CAA, why keep Muslims out of it: Chidambaram to Amit Shah

Senior Congress leader P Chidambram hit out at Union Home Minister Amit Shah for his comments that no one from the minority community will be affected by the CAA and asked why then was the Muslim community excluded from the law in the first place.

Senior Congress leader P Chidambram on Sunday hit out at Union Home Minister Amit Shah for his comments that no one from the minority community will be affected by amended Citizenship Act and asked why then was the community excluded from the law in the first place. Addressing a rally in Kolkata, Shah assured people of the minority community that not a single person will lose citizenship due to the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA).
“The Home Minister says that no minority will be affected by CAA. If this is correct, they should tell the country who would be affected by CAA. If no one would be affected by CAA, as it currently is, why did the government pass the law?

“If the CAA aims to benefit all minorities (no one will be affected, says HM), then why are Muslims excluded from the list of minorities mentioned in the Act?,” Chidambaram asked in a post on Twitter.
