As the Citizenship Amendment Act 2019 notification stirs political controversy, a video from 2020 featuring advocate Abhinav Chandrachud, son of the current Chief Justice of India DY Chandrachud, has resurfaced, garnering attention for his critique of the Act’s constitutionality. In the video, Abhinav contends that the CAA is unconstitutional due to its exclusion of certain religions, such as Jews.

Abhinav elaborates on historical migration patterns from West Pakistan to India, highlighting the disparity in treatment between Hindus/Sikhs and Muslims returning to India. He questions the exclusion of East Pakistan from the permit system, despite a significant Hindu population there at the time.

During the height of anti-CAA protests in 2020, Abhinav raised concerns on social media about the exclusion of Jews from the CAA. He further critiques the Act’s preferential treatment for specific religious groups, highlighting discrepancies in residency requirements for naturalization.

The notification of the CAA has reignited political tensions, with opposition parties like the INDIA bloc condemning it. Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal labeled the decision as dangerous, drawing backlash from the BJP and Sikh community. Meanwhile, West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee dismissed the CAA as a political ploy and vowed to resist the establishment of detention camps in the state.
