Union Home Minister Amit Shah on Monday said people belonging to any religion should not have any fear under the Modi government as he asserted that the Citizenship (Amendment) Bill would give relief to those minorities who have been living a painful life after facing persecution in neighbouring countries.Shah also said the Modi government will definitely implement the National Register of Citizens (NRC) across the country and when it will be done, not a single illegal immigrant will remain in the country.In a hard-hitting reply to a debate on the proposed legislation, which seeks to give citizenship to non-Muslim refugees from Pakistan, Bangladesh and Afghanistan, Shah said there is difference between illegal immigrants and those who have come after facing religious persecution in the three neighbouring countries.
