Jamia students protest outside varsity campus against CAA

The Jamia Millia Islamia students on December 21 staged a demonstration yet again outside the varsity campus against amendments in the citizenship law, days after violent clashes between police and agitationists in its vicinity.

The demonstration, begun by woman students of the central varsity, was later joined by its male students as well as alumni and "outsiders", with the protestors ranting the air with slogans like "Ladke lenge azadi" (get independence after fighting) and "Inquilab Zindabad".

As protesting crowd swelled by minutes, the women students specifically asked them not to use abusive or unparliamentary language during the protest.

The varsity has been at the forefront of the protest against the citizenship law.

Participating in the protest, a 76-year-old woman, Nafiz Ikram said, "You all are leading a movement against what is wrong. Don't step back. Don't get scared of police. You are the real police who are fighting to protect our Constitution".
