A Meghalaya high court judge has in a recent potential controversial order, requested the Prime Minister, home minister, law minister and MPs to pass a law that will allow Hindus, Sikhs, Jains, Buddhists, Parsis, Christians, Khasis, Jaintias and Garos who have come to India from Pakistan, Bangladesh and Afghanistan to live in India and be given citizenship without them having to produce any documents.
“I make it clear that nobody should try to make India as another Islamic country, otherwise it will be a dooms day for India and the world. I am confident that only this Government under Shri. Narendra Modiji will understand the gravity, and will do the needful…” said Sen expressing his opinion.
Sen said so as he delivered his ruling on a petition relating to the refusal of a domicile certificate to a Meghalaya resident. The order also stated that Hindus and Sikhs, of Indian origin and currently residing abroad, should be allowed to come back to India at any time and granted citizenship “automatically”.

“Even today in Pakistan, Bangladesh and Afghanistan, the Hindus, Sikhs, Jains, Buddhists, Christians, Parsis, Khasis, Jaintias and Garos are tortured and they have no place to go and those Hindus who entered India during Partition are still considered as foreigners which in my understanding is highly illogical, illegal and against the principle of natural justice,” Justice Sudip Ranjan Sen said on December 10.
“Pakistan declared itself an Islamic country and India, since it was divided on the basis of religion, should have also been declared a Hindu country but it remained a secular country. Even today, in Pakistan, Bangaldesh and Afghanistan, the Hindus, Sikhs, Jains, Buddhists, Chrstians, Parsis, Khasis, Jaintias and Garos are tortured and they have no place to go and those Hindus who entered India during Partition are still considered foreigners, which in my understanding is illogical, illegal and against the principle of natural justice,” the order said.
Justice Sen, however, clarified he was not “against my Muslim brothers and sisters residing in India for generations and abiding [by] India laws”.
