Shaheen Bagh Valentine's Day Gift for Modi

New Delhi: As the world gears up once again to celebrate the Valentine's Day on Friday, protesters at Shaheen Bagh against CAA-NRC-NPR have announced to unveil a "surprise gift" and "love song" for Prime Minister Narendra Modi on the special day.

Announcing the "surprise gift" and "love song", Shaheen Bagh anti-CAA/NRC/NPR protesters have also shared on the social media photographs with flowers having tags that says Modi #TumKabAaoge.

Images viral on the social media also read "PM Modi Please Come to Shaheen Bagh" written on heart shape placards.

Thousands of people from all faiths, including a large number of women, are protesting at Shaheen Bagh in Delhi since December 15, 2019 against Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA), National Register of Citizens (NRC) and National Population Register (NPR).

Shaheen Bagh on Valentine's Day

Shaheen Bagh's special gesture coinciding with the Valentine's Day came with Union Home Minister Amit Shah saying at Times Now Summit Thursday that CAA is not against anyone, including Muslims. He also said that though the nationwide NRC is BJP's agenda, the government has not taken any decision on it "as yet".

This is an about turn by Amit Shah as there are various videos available where he can be seen saying, inside and outside the parliament, that the Modi government is determined to bring nationwide NRC and that nobody should have any doubt about it.

The speeches of Amit Shah actually fuelled protests against CAA, NRC and NPR all across India and also at various places outside. Critics say CAA combined with NRC indeed endangers the citizenship of millions of Muslims.

"Whether Prime Minister Modi or Home Minister Amit Shah or anyone else, they can come and talk to us. If they can convince us that whatever is happening is not against the Constitution, we will end this protest," Syed Taseer Ahmed, one of the first protesters at Shaheen Bagh, told PTI.

He said according to the government's claims, the CAA was "to award citizenship and not to take away someone's citizenship", but nobody explained "how is it going to help the country".

"How is CAA going to help us tackle issues of unemployment, poverty and economic slowdown, which are the most pressing issues," Ahmed said.
