Sixty harsh days and sixty long nights have passed since the Modi government passed the Citizenship (Amendment) Act on 12 December 2019. After the new citizenship law was passed, nationwide protests broke out.
Demonstrations, slogans, and debates have gripped the country.
The Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) seeks to fast-track citizenship for persecuted Hindus, Parsis, Sikhs, Buddhists, Jains and Christians who came to India before December 31, 2014.
