Shiv Sena on Monday attacked Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) government in the centre over the intension of Citizenship (Amendment) Bill (CAB) saying that whether the bill was to “create a vote bank”.

Although Shiv Sena hasn’t directly opposed the bill while accusing the central government of doing an “invisible partition” of Hindu and Muslims.

In its editorial published in ‘Saamana’, Shiv Sena suggested that Union Home Minister Amit Shah should take away the voting rights of new citizens for the next 25 years.

Sena also stated that the “selective” immigrants will act as a trigger for a religious war in the country while claiming that this bill could lead to “vote bank politics” which is not in the interest of the country.

The centre has made an invisible partition of Hindus and Muslims over the bill. It is true that there is no other country for Hindus except Hindustan. However, by accepting only Hindu among the illegal immigrants will trigger a religious war in the country,” the editorial said.

Sena also appealed Prime Minister Narendra Modi to take action – just as he had taken against Pakistan - against neighbouring countries that torture Hindus.  

The Union Home Minister on Monday introduced the Citizenship (Amendment) Bill in Lok Sabha amid the ongoing winter session of Parliament. Amid the huge uproar, the bill was introduced in Lok Sabha with 293 Ayes and 82 Nos.
