Diplomatic fallout over CAB? Bangladesh FM cancels India trip

Dec 12, 2019 14:53 IST

Bangladesh Foreign Minister A K Abdul Momen has cancelled his three-day visit to India beginning Thursday over the protests after the passage of the controversial Citizenship (Amendment) Bill. According to an earlier advisory issued by the Ministry of External Affairs, Momen was scheduled to arrive in India on Thursday evening. There have been massive protests in Assam and several northeastern states against the proposed legislation which seeks to provide citizenship to non-Muslim persecuted religious minorities from Bangladesh, Pakistan and Afghanistan.
