    Who is citizen, how can it be defined under Indian circumstances ?. How can the Nation filter out non citizens? Is it not important for a state like India to complete the five components of a state as defined . 1, population 2, fixed boundaries( territory) 3,Constitution, 4,sovereignty ( internal supremacy or sovereignty external sovereignty), 5,government . 1, it is accepted fact that people living in the state are citizens of the state . When citizens of other states entering in state are called “aliens ‘’. 3, constitution. India has a constitution which is amendable. Sovereignty explained; ( Internal Sovereignty: It means the power of the State to order and regulate the activities of all the people, groups and institutions which are at work within its territory. All these institutions always act in accordance with the laws of the State. The State can punish them for every violation of any of its laws.) (ii) External Sovereignty: It means complete independence of the State from external control. It also means the full freedom of the State to participate in the activities of the community of nations. Each state has the sovereign power to formulate and act on the basis of its independent foreign policy. 2,We can define external sovereignty of the State as its sovereign equality with every other state. State voluntarily accepts rules of international law. These cannot be forced upon the State. India is free to sign or not to sign any treaty with any other state. No state can force it to do so. No State can really become a State without sovereignty. India became a State in 1947 when it got independence and sovereignty. After her independence, India got the power to exercise both internal and external Sovereignty. Sovereignty permanently, exclusively and absolutely belongs to the State. End of sovereignty means end of the State. That is why sovereignty is accepted as the exclusive property and hallmark of the State. 3. Government: Government is the organisation or machinery or agency or magistracy of the State which makes, implements, enforces and adjudicates the laws of the state. Government is the third essential element of the State. The state exercises its sovereign power through its government.

    Prof Mustafa why the true believers have made even muslims like shias and Ahmadiyas kafirs. Why non muslims are treated kafirs. Why this violation of article 14 of the Indian constitution. A particular faith wants a secular and democratic India while it itself propagates division of humanity into believers and kafirs and remains confined to a book of truth which is above the Indian constitution. Why this paradox and hypocrisy!

    This fellow is against the spirit of Indian constitution. C aa makes the spirit of Indian constitution strengthened. It is not going infringe the rights of any citizen. It squarely identifies foreigners who have been settled in India. They are illegal intruders. They are causing problems of law and order. They are sabotaging the spirit of our constitution. They are even working for our enemy countries to destabilise our economy. They are stealing the bread of poor people of our country. They are posing a threat to our living with the help of people like you. No country is sane enough to accept such perpetual stupidity

    The addition of Socialist and Secularism has come during the most undemocratic era of independent India. So anyone using preamble to justify sound frivolous.

    Sir, Enumeration of citizens in Assam style is faulty and it can't be applied in rest of the country. But no country in the world is without data of its citizens. And, constitutional expert like you should suggest better ways for enumeration of citizens as government has no proper and fair mechanism for this exercise .

    This Gentleman proved that education has nothing to do with wisdom, and once you believe a particular religion, the brain drops down to knees. He is a classic example!!

    Well, I guess everyone has a right to support and oppose that doesn’t mean you are either patriotic or non-patriotic. One thing is for sure, Liberty is a constant battle between government; who would limit it, people; who would concede it, and patriots; who would defend it. So lastly, regardless what’s the outcome of CAA. The land is always there, it is you and I, who has to return. Good luck for both.

    India is burning & is on the track of destruction due to wrong decisions of its Leadership. Time is the best judge. Politics of Hate is bound to fail.. The damage ‘ll continue till these wrong decisions is reversed . Fear & bad taste ‘ll still remain for quite sometime even if corrective steps are taken. Rumi says “ Your Thoughts are your Status & whole property. Rest you’re made of Bones & only Flesh.” He further says true Love & trust are the only answers what cum may ! Narendra Modi & RSS Terrorists are Extremely Ignorant & lacking study, Knowledge, Wisdom & Guidance. The recent Looting of the property of Muslims & killing them proved . “ So the two nation theory stands correct today even after 72 years.indeed ,Jinnah was right .” God Almighty, The creator of the Universe Has sent Hundreds of Thousands Prophets to Guide Human Beings. The most important prophets among them are Adam, Noah , Ibrahim , Moses, David , Joseph , Christ , and The Last Prophet Muhammad ( Peace Be Upon , all of them ) . Four of these Prophets were sent with Books, TAURAT, GOSPHEL ( Good News ) , BIBLE, & Quran. Understanding the DIVINE MESSAGE ( teachings ) is the only things to lead a guided & live a Balanced life . Refusing to accept is Extremely Ignorant . Choice is yours.

    There is a trend nowadays. Wherever I see a video of an anti CAA activist, I always go to the comments section and see lots of people commenting - We support NRC and CAA. That just makes my day 😍😃🤩. The silent majoritarian population is quietly observing and supporting this government. And just because we are silently doing it, these anti CAA protestors think they are winning.. HarNRC

    We are excluding Muslims as muslims are neither Minority nor persecuted in Pakistan Bangladesh and Adghanistan as they are Islamic nations. CAA applies to foreign Minoritieswhich have emigrated to India already due to persecutionon religious basis. Idiot Law professor.we cannot allow Bangladeshiintruders to occupy Infia by illegal entry
