London: Many Indian organisations in London gathered outside Parliament Square on Saturday to extend support to the Citizenship Amendment Act.
The demonstrators voiced that a “brilliant job” has been undertaken by the Indian government to ensure that the minorities in Pakistan, Bangladesh and Afghanistan are being taken care of in the “right manner and shown humanitarian kindness and concern.”
Dr Malissa Kapoor, a British born citizen but married to a Hindu, said that she definitely believes in the right to human life and people being able to practice their religion.
She said, ” It talks about providing citizenship to the refugees who have faced the most horrific circumstances in Pakistan, Bangladesh and Afghanistan,” adding that “such people have lived in fear of their lives since decades.”
“I completely disagree with the protests because the CAA has nothing to do with the people who are already citizens of India. The act is not at all discriminatory. It particularly gives protection to the religiously persecuted minorities,” she added.
Many such demonstrators expressed their views on the act and the protests happening in India. They totally disagreed with the anti-CAA protests and said that the act is not at all discriminatory.
