India’s updated citizens list excludes nearly two million people, mostly Muslims

India has published the final National Register of Citizens (NRC), a list of bonafide citizens in the state of Assam, excluding nearly two million people amid fears they could be rendered stateless. 1.9 million people were excluded from a total of 3.1 million. The government says it carried out the mammoth exercise to detect and deport undocumented immigrants from Bangladesh.
