Citizenship rules have been changed in India by the ruling Hindu Nationalist Party. The amendments made give preferential treatment to certain religious groups, explicitly barring Muslims, to gain citizenship in India. All this has led to communal violence against Muslims, who have had their homes, businesses, mosques and families targeted, most recently in Delhi.
It is important that the international community stands in solidarity with Muslim communities against this persecution and the recent spate of deadly violence in Delhi, before it escalates even further.
