As the protests against the citizenship amendment act (CAA) still being in continuation in India, the United Nations commissioner for human rights, Michelle Bachelet Jeria has moved the Supreme Court of India over CAA.

The human rights commission has moved an intervention application in the Supreme Court of India concerning the citizenship amendment act which means that the global human rights body wants to be made a party in the existing pleas filed against the citizenship amendment act in the Supreme Court of India.

Responding to it, India’s Ministry of external affairs (MEA) asserted that the citizenship amendment act is an internal matter of India and concerns the sovereign right of the Indian Parliament to make laws.

The Ministry of external affairs has released a statement saying – a permanent Mission in Geneva was informed yesterday evening by the United Nations High Commissioner for human rights that her office had filed an intervention application in the Supreme Court of India with respect to the citizenship amendment act.

Ravish Kumar, the spokesperson of the Ministry of external affairs in India said, we strongly believe that no foreign party has any locus standi on issues pertaining to India’s sovereignty.

India is clear that the citizenship amendment act is constitutionally valid and complies with all the requirements of its constitutional values said, Kumar.

India is a democratic country governed by the rule of law. We all have the utmost respect and full trust in our independent judiciary. We are confident that our sound legal system position will be vindicated by the Supreme Court of India, said Kumar.
