The march to Parliament was called by the Jamia Coordination Committee against the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) and National Register of Citizens (NRC).

A scuffle ensued when police confronted the protesters who tried to push forward towards Parliament. Some security forces personnel resorted to the lathi charge while others pushed back the protesters.

On December 16 last year police forcefully entered the Jamia Millia Islamia university and beat up students in the campus. The police even entered the library and beat up the students reading there.

    That’s the usual brutality of fascist forces – everywhere, in Chile, Bolivia, Ecuador, Columbia. If people don’t start to fight capitalism, the mother of fascism, they’ll never get rid of it.
