How Has CAA Affected India's International Relations?
2 min read

The CAA (Citizenship Amendment Act) enacted by India’s federal parliament in December 2019, sparked significant controversy both within the country and internationally. Let’s explore its impact on India’s international relations:

1. Diplomatic Reactions:

  • Condemnation: Several countries expressed concern over the CAA. Islamic nations like Indonesia and Iran criticized India’s move, and the Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) announced plans to file an application on the CAA in the Indian Supreme Court.
  • Diplomatic Spats: India faced tensions with Bangladesh due to insensitive comments made by Indian Home Minister Amit Shah and Defense Minister Rajnath Singh.

2. Economic and Military Impact:

  • Cancelled Deals: To my knowledge, no nation, bank, or company cancelled any economic deals with India directly because of the CAA.
  • Sanctions: There have been no sanctions imposed on India as a result of the CAA. Even Pakistan-connected entities were active in India before December 2019.

3. Image Perception:

  • Global Perception: India’s image in the world did take a beating due to the CAA. However, most of the condemnation remained in the realm of diplomatic rhetoric or discussions on human rights.
  • No Real Change: While the CAA controversy affected India’s global perception, it did not significantly alter its real position in the international arena.

In summary, the CAA stirred debates and criticism, but its direct impact on India’s international relations has been limited. As the world watches, India must continue engaging in informed discussions and uphold its constitutional values.
