    No dual citizenship. There cannot be divided loyalties. The US today is being held hostage to those that are Americans, but are more loyal to Israel. I don't want India to become like that.

    Nope. I may sound like a bitter nationalist, but no individual should have divided loyalties. You are either loyal to your home nation or your adopted nation.

    No. Either you are an Indian or you're not.

    Yes. Why cannot a normal citizen be loyal to two countries?

    India already has a very clever dual citizenship policy. Its called OCI Overseas Citizen of India.

    I and my family have all the rights of a regular indian passport holder except to vote and to buy agricultural land.

    In extreme situations of war, where there is a military call to duty, I can see a conflict of interest scenario. Also nations have to be sensible about vetting people with access to sensitive material. But otherwise In my opinion it is possible to both support what is in the best interests of your heritage nation as well as your host nation. I think that the Jewish Americans that you refer to would argue that the they are fiercely loyal Americans, and that there is no conflict of interests.
