Bengaluru: All women 24-hour protest over CAA in Frazer Town

Bengaluru: The nation has witnessed many protests, but in a first, in defiance of police calls to vacate the area, over 400 women assembled in Pulikeshi Nagar (Fraser Town) on Thursday evening to initiate a 24-hour continuous protest over the newly enacted Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA).

Though the police asked the protesters to clear the area by 10.30 pm, the women refused to leave. The protesters said they intend to stay until Friday afternoon. The protest appeared to be the fulfilment of a threat by activist leaders earlier this week that a less than satisfactory ruling by the Supreme Court in its first hearing on the CAA would see Bengaluru witness a Shaheen Bagh-like protest. Hum Bharat ke Log, the umbrella organisation responsible for organising Thursday’s protest, denied this.
