Yesterday, December 19, saw a massive turnout of people all over India protesting against the Citizenship (Amendment) Act, 2019, the National Register of Citizens and also the police brutality against students of Jamia Milia Islamia and Aligarh Muslim University. People of all genders, caste, age, socio-economic groups, and religions turned up and showed that it is their Indian identity that unites them and their diversity only makes them stronger.
Many celebrities also took to the streets across the country to join hands with their fellow citizens. There was also overwhelming instances of humanity that we saw at the protests, and many of these incidents went viral. Hindus and Sikhs created a human chain for Muslims doing namaaz on the streets and it was heartwarming. This religious unity and harmony is what makes our country great. Amid the protests, we saw some powerful photographs showcasing unity all across the country.
From quirky posters to witter messages, people's resolve to be the change they wish to see in the world was praise-worthy.
Whichever side of the NRC and CAA debate you're on, police brutality on campuses needs to be condemned. It was heartwarming to see that in most places the protests remained peaceful and people raised their voice for what they believed without inciting violence.
