US House panel tweets against India's Citizenship Bill

New Delhi/Washington: The House Foreign Affairs Committee of the US House of Representatives has voiced its apparent disapproval of the Citizenship Amendment Bill (CAB) that proposes granting Indian citizenship for non-Muslim minorities from countries such as Pakistan and Bangladesh.Early on Tuesday, the contentious Bill pushed by the BJP-led government, cleared the lower House of Parliament.

Commenting upon a nytimes.com article on the contentious Bill, the House Foreign Affairs Committee tweeted: "Religious pluralism is central to the foundations of both India and the US and is one of our core shared values. Any religious test for citizenship undermines this most basic democratic tenet. #CABBill."

As a standing committee of the US House of Representatives, the House Foreign Affaris Committee has jurisdiction over the bills and investigations pertaining to US foreign affairs.
