Israel’s discriminatory Law of Return gives all Jews the right to move to Israel & claim Israeli citizenship within three months of arrival. The Citizenship Amendment Bill (CAB) being debated in the Indian Parliament excludes Muslims but makes Hindu, Sikh, Buddhist, Jain, Parsi, & Christian undocumented immigrants from Afghanistan, Bangladesh & Pakistan eligible for Indian citizenship & would shorten the residency requirement for citizenship

Ashfaque EJ, who pointed out the analogy, said “CAB resembles the Law of Return. So India is on the verge of becoming a Hindu Israel, not a Hindu Pakistan.”
