Misleading article, it doesn't change the rules for citizenship. It's an amnesty law that limits amnesty to minorities from Pakistan and Bangladesh, as opposed to majorities in those countries who may be living illegally in India.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi's government says the new law will save religious minorities such as Hindus and Christians from persecution in neighboring Bangladesh, Pakistan and Afghanistan by offering them a path to Indian citizenship. But critics say the law, which does not make the same provision for Muslims, weakens the secular foundations of India.

So I'm guessing the people causing all the violence are Muslims, as India is 80 percent Hindu and only 14 percent Muslim why don't the Muslims just move to Muslim majority countries of Bangladesh or Pakistan if they feel persecuted against.

Modi is correct, and the "critics" are buying into islamist propaganda. The reality is that non-muslim minorities and Sharia countries are threatened, and it is high time we recognize that and start helping them.

That would seem to be a pretty good guess.
