Indians rally to condemn or support divisive citizenship law

India’s new citizenship law prompted protesters to take to the streets across the country to condemn or support the divisive legislation, which critics say is an attack on the country’s secular constitution and minority Muslims. Protesters in New Delhi staged a street performance outside Jamia Millia Islamia University with actors dressed as police pretending to beat students. The campus has been a site of violent clashes between police and anti-citizenship law demonstrators.In the northern city of Dehradun and in central Bhopal, supporters of Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s ruling Bharatiya Janata Party marched with Indian flags to show their support of the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA).
