On passing the Citizenship Amendment Bill today in Rajya Sabha, a Mumbai-based IPS Officer Mr. Abdur Rahman declares his resignation from the service in protest against the Bill. He declared in his announcement that he condemns the Bill. He says, “as a civil disobedience, I have decided not to continue in the service and thus not to attend office from tomorrow. I am quitting the service finally. I say sorry to those who want me to continue in service and give justice to the deprived people.

The reason for his opposition to Citizenship Amendment Bill is because “it clearly discriminates against the people belonging to Muslim community. The Bill is totally unconstitutional and against very basic feature of Equality Before Law. It violates Article 14, 15 and 25 of the Constitution. Religion cannot become a basis in giving or depriving a person from citizenship.”
