Members of Islamic group Tamil Nadu Thowheed Jamath have continued their anti-CAA, NPR and NRC protests near the Madras high court in spite of the ominous Coronavirus
Bengaluru: All thanks to Coronavirus, the nation has literally come to a standstill. Malls and theatres are shut. Schools and other educational institutions too are shut. Mass gatherings have also been prohibited since the spread happens easily if there is a congregation.
Every right-thinking individual is following the guidelines being issued by the government from time to time, but anti-CAA protesters care little.
While we reported on Tuesday that the Delhi police failed to convince Shaheen Bagh protesters to call off their protests owing to Coronavirus, news now has emerged that members of Islamic group
Tamil Nadu Thowheed Jamath have continued their anti-CAA protests outside the Madras high court, in spite of the ominous threat.
The protests at Shaheen Bagh have been going on for the last few months. Though the top court of the country expressed its displeasure, the protest continues to take place as the protesters remain defiant.
The matter will come up for hearing again next week.
The Prime Minister and the Union home minister have consistently belaboured that the CAA snatches the citizenship of no Indian citizen, but the Congress and is coterie have successfully spread lies and misinformation, especially the minorities.
All that the CAA does is to grant citizenship to the non-Muslim persecuted minorities of Pakistan, Bangladesh and Afghanistan if they have been in India before December 31, 2014.
The CAA was passed by both houses of the Indian Parliament last December. It is then that it became a law.
In spite of it acquiring the status of a law, several states have passed a resolution to not implement it.
However, a thoughtful Narendra Modi government has been mulling a plan to issue citizenship to the persecuted minorities online as and when they apply.
It is also to be noted that while Congress opposes the CAA, its own government in Rajasthan had issued citizenship to Hindus from Pakistan.
