UK: Protesters Decry Delhi Violence at Demo Outside London's Indian Embassy

Protesters gathered outside the Indian Embassy in London on Saturday, to decry the ongoing violence in New Delhi as well as the policies of Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s government.

“I think they need to repeal this amendment called the CAA. It’s anti Muslim, it’s anti-overseas Indian citizens, and it’s anti national,” said Vepari, a protester.

At least 38 people have died in India’s capital since protests against the new Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA), which began on Monday, triggered violent clashes between Hindus and Muslims. At least 38 people have died in India’s capital since Sunday, February 23, after violent clashes broke out between Hindus and Muslims, triggered by continuing protests against the new Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA).

While both Hindus and Muslims have had property destroyed, the majority has belonged to the latter, with three mosques also being burnt, as well as multiple schools and many vehicles.

Protests have swept India since the Indian Parliament passed the CAA on December 11, entitling religious minority migrants from Afghanistan, Bangladesh, and Pakistan to Indian citizenship if they entered the country before the end of December 2014.

The act has come under criticism for discriminating against undocumented Muslim migrants.
