Impossible to prove religious persecution under CAA: Assam Minister Himanta Biswa

When asked about his earlier statement on religious persecution the Assam Finance Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma said that it is impossible for the person to go back to Bangladesh and collect a copy of police report to show the proof of religious persecution and he further asked that why would the police station in Bangladesh give that proof. Earlier, he had said that religious persecution cannot be a criterion for CAA, asking how can an applicant prove that he is a victim of religious persecution or that he has fled his country of origin and entered India owing to fear of religious persecution.
