Anti CAA Protest in wedding

New Delhi: In an innovative way to protest against the CAA and NRC, a postgraduate student of Jamia Millia Islamia decided to hold an anti-CAA placard during her marriage.

Interestingly, the bride was later joined by the groom and some relatives who decided to pose with the placards in the marriage pictures.

Amina Zakiah, a postgraduate student residing in the nearby Abul Fazl Enclave, had been actively participating in the protests against the CAA and NRC, but the instances of violence in recent days forced her to find a peaceful way to stage a protest.

Her brother-in-law, Abu Talha Farooqi while speaking to IANS, confirmed that the protest was planned to present their points in a peaceful way.

"We were all actively involved in the protest, but lately we saw violence taking over the protest, many of our known people were manhandled by security forces who tried to suppress the protest so we came up with this idea," Farooqi said.

Residents of Jamia Nagar have been organising peaceful demonstrations outside the university campus against the alleged police brutality on students and the citizenship law. While protests have spread to different parts of the country in which several people have been killed and injured, the situation outside Jamia has remained peaceful for the past one week.

However, after a violent confrontation between the police and protesters on December 15, police barged into Jamia Millia Islamia without the necessary permission and beath students inside the library, mosque and hostel. Video clips of police damaging furniture in the library surfaced soon after the incident.

At least five buses were set ablaze or damaged, besides cars and bikes that were targeted by the mob. Two fire brigade officials were injured in stone pelting as the anti-CAA protests intensified as arsonists indulged in vandalism and a stone pelting mob ran amok threatening residents.
