Professor Devinder Singh is a renowned scholar and specialises in Human Rights ,Election and Constitutional Law .He very eloquently defined Nationality and Citizenship . Nationality is permanent whereas citizenship may be acquired from one state to another. The right to nationality has to be respected and the state has the right to regulate its citizens to overcome any impending problem, respecting their identity. We should respect each other to bring peace and harmony in our society. The Constitution of India gives equal opportunity to all its citizens to develop togetherness. We should all learn to co-exist peacefully respecting each other’s identity and save our country from anarchy and controversies.
