A day after the Union Government notified the rules to implement the controversial Citizenship Amendment Act 2019, the Indian Union Muslim League (IUML) filed an application seeking stay of the Citizenship Amendment Rules 2024, it’s leaders said to Maktoob.

“We will fight against this unconstitutional and discriminatory law legally and politically,” IUML senior leader and Lok Sabha MP E.T Muhammed Basheer said to Maktoob on Monday, hours after Union government notification.

IUML who is the lead petitioner in the batch of writ petitions pending in the Supreme Court challenging the CAA, filed an interlocutory application in the pending writ petition seeking an immediate stay of the implementation of the CAA, Live Law reported.

Muslim League argued that since the Act has linked citizenship to religion and has introduced a classification solely on the basis of religion, it is “prima facie unconstitutional” and ought to be stayed by the Supreme Court.
