What are the problems?

Citizenship Amendment Bill

Now, the problems and why this Bill is Criticized because, it does discrimination by not allowing Muslims or excluding Muslims from this new Amendment and the second thing which is also Criticizing the CAB is that people of northeast says that this amendment will provide benefits to illegal Bengali Hindu migrants from Bangladesh who settled in Large Number across the regions, and many other questions are asked that why bill is not including Tamil Refugees from Sri Lanka and several other communities and religions and this act also fails to follow Constitution of India and challenge the constitution.
