“Make Changes To CAA”: Harsimrat Kaur’s Appeal To PM For “Rehabilitation” Of Refugees

Ms Badal appealed that the government should priortise the “rehabilitation of Hindus and Sikhs” coming from Afghanistan.

As Taliban’s return to power in neighbouring Afghanistan has compelled thousands to escape, Akali Dal MP Harsimrat Kaur Badal highlighted the issue and urged for a review of the CAA (Citizenship Amendment Act). Ms Badal appealed that the government should priortise the “rehabilitation of Hindus and Sikhs” coming from Afghanistan to “provide them a safe haven” in India.

“Not only must we rescue our Sikh and Hindu brethren from certain death in Afghanistan, it’s imperative we provide them a safe haven and home here, for this is their own land. I urge PM @narendramodi & HM @AmitShah to make changes in CAA and facilitate their rehabilitation on priority,” Harsimrat Kaur Badal wrote in her tweet.

Harsimrat Kaur Badal today also made another appeal to the government. “We fear not just the loss of human lives but also desecration of shrines and a number of rare handwritten copies of Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji. Appeal to @DrSJaishankar/ @MEAIndia to ensure that along with Hindu/Sikh brethren, holy books too are brought home safely with full dignity (sic),” she tweeted.

Akali Dal’s Manjinder Singh Sirsa, who also heads the Delhi Sikh Gurdwara Management committee, had also raised the appeal on Tuesday to grant citizenship to those who have taken refuge in India.

“Requesting @AmitShah ji & Govt of India for necc amendments in CAA to cover Sikhs + Hindus of Afghanistan who have taken refuge in 2020 & 2021. India has taken a humanitarian step by supporting minorities of Afghanistan & it would be great to help them by granting Indian citizenship (sic),” Mr Sirsa tweeted, along with a letter to the government.
