UN Secretary General, António Guterres, recently raised concerns over the impending fate of the minorities in India, following the passing of the Citizen Amendment Act (CAA).
During his four-day visit to Pakistan, the Secretary General said that "there is a risk of statelessness" with regards to the two million people that are now facing the danger of exclusion due to the much contested CAA.
Guterres spoke about the importance of avoiding statelessness and that measures must be taken "to ensure that every citizen of the world is also a citizen of a country."
"It is absolutely essential that when nationality law is changed, statelessness is prevented," he added.
