External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar defended the Citizenship (Amendment) Act (CAA) on Saturday, following criticism from the United States and other countries. Responding to US Ambassador Eric Garcetti's remarks on the CAA at the India Today Conclave, Jaishankar argued that India has a responsibility to those "who were let down" during the Partition. He also cited examples of other countries fast-tracking citizenship for specific religious groups. The CAA expedites Indian citizenship for persecuted non-Muslim minorities from Pakistan, Afghanistan, and Bangladesh.
