Abstract The article addresses the post-secular shift in the global politics of citizenship and migration where secular and inclusive ideals are being threatened by emerging right-wing leadership, especially in the Indian subcontinent. It also highlights the politicization of migration and citizenship through ethnic and nationalistic discourses, illustrating examples of refugees and migrants in India. It also investigates the nexus between the controversial Citizenship Amendment Act 2019 and the divisive National Register of Citizens.
