Unlike couples who opt for extravagant decor and fancy landscapes for their pre-wedding shoots, this one from Kerala used their big day as an opportunity to talk about CAA, an act that hasn't gone down well with most of the citizens. In one of the pictures (by First Look Wedding Photography) from their pre-wedding shoot, they expressed disagreement with the CAA and NRC by holding placards saying 'NO CAA, NO NRC'. Wow!
And well, this Kerala bride and groom duo aren't alone. More people are now opting for the same and using social media to spread the important message. A Twitter user shared pictures of another duo (from their wedding), captioned, "Kerala. #IndiaAgainstCAA_NRC"
The Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) came into effect on December 18, 2019 after the bill was passed in the Rajya Sabha. The act gives fast-track citizenship to non-Muslim refugees from countries like Pakistan, Afghanistan, and Bangladesh who have taken refuge in India. The centre has left out Muslims from the Act, making citizenship a matter of faith.
