They underlined the fact that "Ever since the new government was elected in May 2019, there have been several controversial legislation passed by the Parliament that lead to the collapse of the democratic institutions of India which have been carefully and painstakingly built by enlightened leaders over the last seven decades."

The CAA 2019 cannot be seen in isolation. It has to be seen in the light of the National Register of Citizenship (NRC), an attempt to target minority communities under the guise of identifying illegal immigrants, they noted.

Vehemently opposing, resisting and protesting against CAA and NRC, Christian leaders warned that all these were aimed at polarizing communities in the name of religion, excluding the minorities and making a majoritarian, theocratic hegemony.

"It is extremely shameful for a patriotic citizen of India that even a brave decorated former Indian soldier and Kargil war hero, Mr. Mohammad Sanaullah, has been declared an illegal immigrant by the flawed NRC process and incarcerated in detention," they said.

Threat to Pakistan from India increasing due to anti-CAA protest: Imran Khan

Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan on Saturday expressed concern that India could carry out a "false-flag operation" against it to divert attention from its domestic situation. In a series of tweets Imran Khan said that under the Modi government, India has been moving towards "Hindu Rashtra" with its "fascist ideology".

Imran Khan said that as the protests in India are increasing, "threat to Pakistan from India is also increasing" and the Indian Army chief General Bipin Rawat's remarks on the situation along the Line of Control in Kashmir adds to Pakistan's "concerns of a false-flag operation". He warned that Pakistan will give a befitting response to any such action.

General Rawat on Wednesday said that the situation along the Line of Control in Jammu and Kashmir can escalate any time and the Army is ready for any "escalatory matrix".
