BENGALURU: The ‘Enemy Property’ law of 1968 was amended by the Parliament on Tuesday. The Enemy Property bill, 2016 was passed by voice vote in the Lok Sabha after the amendments made by the Rajya Sabha.

The amended five decades old, Enemy Property law extends the definition of ‘enemy’ to include the legal heirs of declared enemies, even when their heir is an Indian citizen or of a country not considered to be an enemy.

The Enemy Property Act of 1968 was launched three years post Indo- Pak war which gave the Indian government the right to seize assets of Indian nationals who had migrated to Pakistan or China after the Indo- Pak war.

“The present govt in the name of nationalism is trying to deprive the minority community. Whether they talk about grave yards or other entitlements, they are indirectly trying to deprive them further,” said Kshithij U.R.S, a social activist and visiting professor at National Law School of India.
