At least five people have been killed in protests against India's new law that grants citizenship to victims of religious persecution from Afghanistan, Pakistan and Bangladesh, but excludes Muslims. In New Delhi, dozens of students from Jamia Millia Islamia university were arrested and over 100 were injured in clashes with baton-wielding police. The deaths came Sunday in eastern Assam state, where nearly 2 million Muslims were also recently excluded from a new National Register of Citizens.
Are demonstrations continuing? Protesters, who say the new law marginalizes Muslims and violates India's secular Constitution, staged more gatherings in New Delhi, Mumbai, Lucknow and Bengaluru today.
