Thousands of people including a large number of women took part in a protest demonstration against Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA), the National Register of Citizens (NRC) and the National Population Register (NPR) at Azad Maidan in Mumbai. The “Maha-Morcha” protest was organised by the National Alliance against the Citizenship Amendment Act, National Register of Citizens and the National Population Register.
Scores of citizens from Mumbai, Thane and Navi Mumbai were part of the protest held on Saturday. They demanded that the new citizenship law be repealed. At the protest, speakers recited noted Urdu poet Faiz Ahmad Faiz’s poem “Hum Dekhenge” (We will see). Justice (retired) Kolse Patil, social activist Teesta Setalvad, actor Sushant Singh, Samajwadi Party leader Abu Asim Azmi etc. were present in the event.
The protest came as a strong opposition to the government’s proposed Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA), the National Register of Citizens (NRC) and the National Population Register (NPR). Similar protests are taking place across the country, one of the most notable being the Shaheen Bagh protest in New Delhi which has witnessed worldwide attention and also has undergone several controversies.
