Delhi protest: India's citizenship law gives new displays

5

New exhibitions took place in 17 cities at least on Monday. The protests are part of peace that affected India after the citizenship law progressed in December 11. The measure was a priority for Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who reelection in May and his partner's agenda implemented an emphasis on Hindu primacy in India.

The stewards say the measure is unconstitutional and is a break with the founding ethos of secularism in India. The government says that the purpose of the law is to alleviate the hardship of persecuted minorities who have joined India from Pakistan, Bangladesh and Afghanistan.

Some protesters believe that the law is fundamentally discriminatory, others are afraid – especially in northern India – that it will accelerate demographic and linguistic change. Four people were killed by police police in the northeast state of Assam during protests against the law.

On Monday, Modi Write that the “recent violent protests. . . He is unhappy and very worried. “He quietly appealed and appeared to be blamed for the displays on his political colleagues. “We cannot allow vested interest groups to share us and create a disturbance,” he said.

Modi said, speaking at a rally on Sunday, the protesters who were settling fires could “identify their clothes.

Amit Shah, Modi's powerful second order, repeatedly stated that citizenship law will follow a national registry in which all Indians will be required to produce documents that create their citizenship, incredibly for identifying illegally arrived migrants.

Now the law enforcement reaction to the protests is contributing to further displays, which encourage continued unrest. On Sunday, a protest near a university in New Delhi turned violent, and protesters were throwing stones at the police. Four buses and many motorcycles were put on fire.

The police met protesters to stick and released gas tear as the officers arrived in the university. A spokesman for the Delhi police, M.S. Randhawa told reporters on Monday evening that police personnel had used “maximum restraint” and “minimum force.” Two dozen police officers were injured in the conflict.

Najma Akhtar, Vice Chancellor of Jamia Millia Islamia University, said police were entering the campus without the permission of the university authorities and approximately 200 students were injured. University students are primarily Muslims.

A doctor in Safdarjung Delhi Hospital told the Washington Post that two wounds were introduced with two protesters. One was shot in the chest and the other in the foot, said the doctor, who said that he was anonymous because the police were afraid to be harassed. Four police officers transferred the two men “like prisoners,” he said, adding that both had been in a stable condition after treatment.

Social media was very impressed with videos showing the police attacking unarmed students. In one viral video, a group of young women try to shield a young man from police officers who make a stick that he meets again and again. Another widely shared vision shows that students in a university library are covering as smoke fills the room. The attack on a college campus was surprising to many people in Delhi, who were not able to recall a similar incident in recent years.

Iman Usmani, an 18-year-old student, was taking part in a Sunday parade when the crowd arrived at a large number of police officers, who started hitting people with sticks and canal friction canister. One of the canisters exploded beside her, Usmani said, and she blew.

“I couldn't breathe. Some students rubbed salt on my face, ”she said. “The police went inside the campus, hitting people and pushing gas shells at the canteen and library.”

Ishita, a 21-year-old student who asked not to recognize her first name but said she was afraid of the police, was on campus because others were in conflict with the police. outside. Then tear gas canister starting to bring land within the gate.

Burning of eyes and throats started, she and other students started running towards the main library. Police officers tackled them, she said, lying insults – “sluts,” “Pakistanis,” “traitors” – and hitting anyone with long sticks on them. She said she was hiding in a bathroom upstairs in the library, not to be reluctant to move.

Umar Ashraf, 24, was inside a reading room on campus when he said he had heard the sound of friction gas canvases.

“You couldn't see anything. The air was full of smoke, ”he said. “The students were running a skater.” One of the friends who hid inside a bathroom pulled out and the police hit it. Ashraf said that he ran out through the back lane to save himself.

“They were meeting people like they were hitting a drum,” he said.
