SUBJECT: DUAL CITIZENSHIP APPEAL TO ALL ELIGIBLE INDIAN AMERICANS
Dear Honorable Prime Minister of India,
We, the people of Indian Origin, who have received Citizenship in the U.S., are considered as foreign nationals by the Indian Consulate and even by the Indian authorities. Many of us are OCI Card holders, who were forced to surrender the Indian Passports in front of the Indian Consulate, and many of us had to “ Renounce” our Indian Citizenship. We were treated very badly and totally discriminated by the past UPA Government.
We know that you were an advocate for Dual Citizenship and you even sent memorandum to the UPA Government while you were the Chief Minister of Gujarat. We understand that you know the feelings of our people, who are serving our great nation by working hard in far away lands, and sending major part of our earnings to India dreaming a better tomorrow.
At this time, the Indian American Community is welcoming you to America. We believe that under your leadership there will be good relationship with India and the U.S. that help us to be recognized in this foreign land.
Even though many of us accepted American Citizenship, we still like to retain our Indian Citizenship along with the American Citizenship. We all know that several developed countries have Dual Citizenship such as U.S., U.K., Australia, Switzerland, etc. and they don’t have any restrictions on holding Dual Citizenship. We also know that Belgium, Italy, Bangladesh, Canada, South Korea, South Africa, Egypt, Iraq, France, Germany, Israel, most of the Latin American Countries, even Pakistan have Dual Citizenship.
So, We , the Indian American community, humbly request you to amend the old Indian Citizenship Act of 1955, and resolve the hardships encountered by the Indian Americans , by taking necessary steps to issue “Dual Citizenship” to all eligible Indian nationals and their children, which we believe, is our “Birth Right.”
We request your immediate attention to this matter and we hope and pray that our dream of Dual Citizenship will come true during your first term in office.
On behalf of the Expatriate Indian Citizens.
Chairman, Justice For All, Inc.
