Inspired by women-led protest in New Delhi’s Shaheen Bagh women started an indefinite sit in protest at Gomit Nagar’s Shaheed Turkmaan-e-hind Mazar Lucknow on tuesday against Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) National Register of citizenship(NRC) and National Population Register (NPR).
They were seen holding placards that read “No CAA, NRC, NPR” ” You can’t impose 144 on our speech freedom and truth” “Fight for an equal India” etc.
“We are protesting peacefully. This is our right. We are around 150 women and will continue our protest until CAA, NPR and NRC are withdrawn,” a protester said.
The protest in Shaheen Bagh has gained nationwide attention as women have been protesting in the Delhi’s cold against the unconstitutional act passed by the BJP led government.
