B9 : Freedom of religion: can protection against persecution justify infringement of the right to equality?

India’s recent Citizenship Amendment Act affords protection to Hindu, Sikh, Buddhist, Jain, Pars, and Christian migrants fleeing persecution, but not to Muslim migrants. The UN has observed that these amendments will have a “discriminatory effect on people’s access to nationality” and appear to undermine India’s Constitutional commitment to equality before the law and non-discrimination. Experience from other jurisdictions will also be addressed in this session.
