    Pakistan (and Bangladesh) were separated from India as a separate nation for Muslims. Hindus/Christians there are second class citizens due to the Islamic constitution. The CAA is a specific relief for Hindus and Christians who could not get their Indian citizenship at the time of Partition. Before partition, Muslims were given a separate electorate by the British. They voted for the Muslim league which stood for a separate nation for Muslims. The Muslim league won resoundingly in every single seat. This enabled the partition of Pakistan from India. It is unclear what her issue with the CAA is.

    Good poem. Seriously these read and say these words only when they want their rights or some else say so. She is reading it heavily n forcefully. She reading this poem right? Does she know truth CAA and NRC? Has any one asked questions to her?
