India: Thousands Take to New Delhi Streets in Latest Round of Citizenship Bill Protests

Hundreds of demonstrators flooded New Delhi’s streets in another row of ongoing protests sparked by a recently ratified Citizenship Amendment Act outside Jamia Millia Islamia (JMI) University on Thursday.

Protesters angrily chanting anti-government slogans and showcasing signs with messages such as ‘Down with the Shah’ and ‘You can’t divide us,’ can be seen on footage among the crowd.

Large demonstrations are taking place in the country since last Thursday, over a new citizenship bill entitling Indian citizenship to migrants who are either Buddhists, Jains, Christians, Parsis, Sikhs or Hindus from Afghanistan, Bangladesh, and Pakistan as long as they entered the country before 2015.

Critics say that the bill could cause further ostracisation of the some 200 million Muslims living in India and state that it is discriminatory in nature as it does not include Muslim migrants from the same countries.
