Hyderabadis react to Citizenship Amendment Act

December 19, 2019

The Citizenship Amendment Act, which received President’s approval last week have sparked nationwide protests. Many voices of dissent have sprung against the exclusion of Muslims from seeking refuge  under the Act. CAA provides refuge to Hindus, Sikhs, Jains, Christians from Pakistan, Afghanistan and Bangladesh.  While in Assam protests have broken out against the Act for what is being termed anti-indigenous nature, in other parts of the country such as Hyderabad, the CAA when seen in conjunction with the upcoming nationwide NRC has caused anxiety among Muslims. In this episode of The Suno India Show, our editor Padma Priya discusses the issue with prominent Hyderabadis Bizet Banerjee, Mohd Nayeem and Yunus Lasania, host of Beyond Charminar. The episode also brings to fore voices of protestors who participated in a protest organised by student unions at Arts College in Osmania University.
