New Delhi:

Union minister Prakash Javadekar on Friday assured that the NCR will be implemented smoothly and not a single Indian citizen will be deprived of his or her citizenship rights in the process.

Speaking to the media, he also said that the people coming to India were part of it before Bangladesh and Pakistan were separated.

“People got their Aadhaar very easily. I can assure whenever NRC happens, it will be so smooth and not a single Indian citizen will be deprived of their citizenship,” he said.

Speaking on excluding Muslims from the CAA, he explained that the three neighboring countries — Bangladesh, Pakistan, and Afghanistan — have declared themselves as Islamic states.

“Therefore, you cannot imagine the religious persecution of somebody based on religion in an Islamic state. Also, the people living in Bangladesh and Pakistan now coming back were part of India only.”

So they were originally Indian citizens, he said adding “India was divided but not the people.”
