Following the historic passing of the Citizenship Amendment Act, there have been protests in some parts of the country, which are being now hijacked by the Muslim groups and are unleashing extreme violence across the country. On Friday, the protests against the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAB) took a communal turn in Delhi after ‘students’ of the controversial Jamia Millia Islamia (JMI) University resorted to mob violence against the police officials and shouted Islamic slogans “Allah-o-Akbar” during their protests.
Reportedly, as the protests turned violent, 50 students were also detained after the stone-pelting.

Another video has surfaced where Jamia Millia Islamia University students can be seen raising ‘Allaho Akbar’ and ‘Nara-e-Taqbeer’ slogans. They are also heard saying, “Ye shahar zagmagaega, nur-e-la-illaha se, Ye desh zagmagaega, nur-e-la-ilaha se.Nara-e-takbir, Allahu Akbar”.
The ‘students’ of the Jamia Millia Islamia University in Delhi were also seen abusing police with provocative words as they used tear gas to disperse the violent mob.
In a video shared by retired news anchor Barkha Dutt, it can be heard that abusive and sexual slurs are being shouted against police officers while one of the violent protestors is also heard asking a fellow protestor not to let go the policemen.

In another video shared by one of the radical Islamic groups known as Tehzeeb Committee of Jamia Millia Islamia college, a ‘student’ can be seen making communal and provocative statements by claiming that ‘those who want to protect Muslims will have to protect Islam’. There were also several provocative statements that demanded Muslims to take to the streets. The “speech” was followed by a worrying slogan, “tera mera rishta kya, La ilahi illilah”. Similar statements were heard in Kashmir with respect to Pakistan by terrorists where they chanted “Pakistan se rishta kya, La ilahi illilah”.
Around 2,000 Jamia ‘students’ in Delhi were protesting against the CAB. The Jamia protesters against CAB had called for a march to Parliament House from the university campus to express their opposition to the legislation. However, they resorted to violence and broke police barricades.
As the police began to lathi-charge the students to calm down the situation, the protestors resorted to stone-pelting against these police officials. Several policemen have been injured in the mob attack of the students and three policemen are in critical condition in the ICU.
The similar pattern of violent protests has also occurred, in fact in a much larger scale of violence, in the state of West Bengal. Many members belonging to various Muslim organisations in the state held violent protests following the passing of the historic Citizenship Amendment Act (CAB).
Protests against the CAB were planned soon after Friday prayers across mosques in the State and other various parts of the country which has resulted in extreme violence in parts of West Bengal.
The Muslim mobs have resorted to stone-pelting against public properties and policemen along with burning of railway infrastructure in the state. Mobs pelted stones on ambulances and torched several vehicles, A cop was injured in the violent protests against Citizenship Amendment Act.
The Citizenship (Amendment) Bill was passed by Rajya Sabha on Wednesday and by Lok Sabha on Monday. On Thursday, the Citizenship (Amendment) Bill, 2019 became an act of law after President Ram Nath Kovind gave his assent to the historic legislation.
The Citizenship Amendment act seeks to give Indian citizenship to the members of Hindu, Sikh, Buddhist, Jain, Parsi and Christian communities who have come from three neighbouring Islamic countries – Pakistan, Afghanistan, and Bangladesh after facing religious persecution.
