India: Muslims protest citizenship bill in New Delhi after Friday prayer

Thousands of Muslims took to the streets of New Delhi to protest the recently ratified Citizenship Amendment Act, shortly after attending the Friday prayer at a local mosque. Large demonstrations have been taking place in the country since last Thursday over a new citizenship bill entitling Indian citizenship to migrants who are either Buddhists, Jains, Christians, Parsis, Sikhs or Hindus from... Еще Afghanistan, Bangladesh, and Pakistan as long as they entered the country before 2015. Critics say that the bill could cause further ostracisation of the some 200 million Muslims living in India and state that it is discriminatory in nature as it does not include Muslim migrants from the same countries.
