India Unrest

India is currently facing widespread protests after the Bharatiya Janata Party passed the controversial CAA. The Act makes it easier for non-Muslims from the neighbouring countries of Afghanistan, Bangladesh and Pakistan who settled in India prior to 2015 to gain Indian citizenship.

Thousands of people have protested, saying the law is anti-Muslim and the latest in a series of measures by Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s Hindu nationalist government to marginalise the community. At least six people have died in clashes between protesters and security forces. The government, in order to quell the protests, imposed internet bans and curfews.

Big rallies crowded streets and criticizing the modi administration and demanding to pull back the law.

During the past week of unrest, hundreds of people have been arrested.

Authorities have cut the internet in some flashpoint areas and banned large gatherings in others.

Police have fired tear gas, also accused of beating protesters.

The arrested include women and students, heightening the anger.

Restrictions also imposed in Lucknow, capital of northern Uttar Pradesh state.

In New Delhi, authorities imposed a ban on gatherings of more than four people in some of its Muslim-dominated districts.

Police fired shots in the air in a Muslim-dominated part of the capital.

Police also stormed protest in front of New Delhi’s Jamia Millia Islamia university that left 200 students injured.

Hundreds of people rallied in Mumbai and chanted”We Are All One”.

Protests have also turned violent in West Bengal where many were injured in scuffles.

The UN Secretary-General’s spokesman Stephane Dujarric also expressed concerns on the situation.

The United States’s State Department also urged New Delhi to protect human rights.

What’s the new bill ?

Modi’s new citizenship act challenges secularism by injecting religion into national policy.

The Citizenship Amendment Act  allows persecuted minorities a fast-track route to Indian citizenship.

Muslims, however, not included.
