Over 100,000 joined the demonstration dubbed ‘Million March’ in the south-eastern city of Hyderabad on Saturday to protest India’s new Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA).
Protesters chanted “we want justice” and held signs reading “Protest against CAA/ NRC/ NPR” and “Happy New Fear.”
One of the demonstrators, Mohammata, said “it’s not about how much time it will take us,” before adding “we’ll keep protesting, whether they listen or not, one way or the other they will have to listen.”
Another protester, Taj, compared the citizenship law to the “Nuremberg laws of Hitler” and the persecution of Jews. “The government wants to do the same with the people of India, with the Muslims,” he said.
The rally was reportedly organised by an umbrella group of Muslim and civil society organisations.
