CCS Statement on the Bharatiya Janata Party’s Citizenship (Amendment) Act, 2019

By Comrade H. R. Nadezhda

The Center for Communist Studies stands with our comrades in India and around the world protesting against the blatant Islamophobia and ethno-nationalism being practiced by the Modi government. The newly passed Citizenship Act seeks to, ironically, protect minorities from neighbouring countries while further oppressing and alienating the Muslim minority in India. These attempts to create a "uniform" population are familiar to those of us who stand against fascism in all its forms, and we reaffirm our pledge to support protests and agitate against these policies. This event serves as a reminder that the most dangerous population is that which supports a government for "economic" reasons, and ignores the inherent prejudice, bigotry and hatred it stands for.
