Mangaluru: Former IAS officer and Deputy Commissioner of Dakshina Kannada, S Sashikanth Senthil,  has written a strongly worded letter to the Home Minister Amit Shah condemning the Citizenship Amendment Bill.

Addressing the Home Minister, Senthil wrote, “Your vehement defence of the bill on the floor of the house revealed a lot about the core ideology of hatred that drives your government. I feel completely ashamed that as a country that we have let down our Muslim and Adivasi brothers and sisters and have not succeeded in assuaging their fears about the secular ethos of the country.”

“The passing of this bill in the Lok Sabha has left a deep scar in the belief of already marginalized people and along with the NRC is surely an attempt to profile Muslims and Adivasis akin to the Asiatic Registration Act in South Africa and the Nuremberg laws of Germany,” he added.

Calling for a civil disobedience against the bill, Senthil called upon fellow citizens to follow the path that Mahatma Gandhi did in South Africa protesting the Asiatic Registration Act.

“As a former civil servant, I would advise you to increase the capacity of your detention centers, as many of us would fill it up before you succeed in your agenda. In the coming days you would realize that this country is the making of people who would stand up for one another and would fight every attempt by any authority to divide us,” Senthil said.
