Muslim organisations protest outside Lakshadweep administration office, demand sacking administrator

Muslim organisations held a 10-minute protest outside the Lakshadweep administration office in Ernakulam. The main demand of SYS, Samastha Jamathul Ulema is to sack the administrator, Praful Khoda Patel. The protesters say that the new administrator does not understand the sentiments of the people and the culture of Lakshadweep. It all began after Patel was posted as the administrator on the island in December 2020. It was alleged that he was angry to see the anti-Citizenship (Amendment) Act (CAA) posters and banners on the island two years ago. There are apprehensions over the move to ban beef, lift the ban on the sale of liquor, enforce the Goonda Act and the proposal to ban persons who have more than two children from contesting elections to the local bodies.
