    Assam BJP President Ranjeet Dass Shown Black Flags By Anti-CAA Protesters In Golaghat

    At least 10 anti-Citizenship Amendment Act protesters were detained by police

    Assam BJP president Ranjeet Dass was shown black flags by the anti-Citizenship Amendment Act protesters in upper Assam’s Golaghat district on February 27th, 2020. Dass was heading to attend a meeting of the district BJP.

    The Golaghat district unit of the All Assam Students’ Union (AASU) and Asom Jatiyatabadi Yuva Chatra Parishad (AJYCP) waved black flags at the state BJP president in protest against the newly enacted law.

    At least 10 activists including AJYCP Golaghat president Abdul Hasim, general secretary Nikuknja Medhi and Golaghat AASU president Prince Doley were detained by the police.

    “We were staging a democratic protest against the government’s atrocities. We will not accept the contentious Citizenship Amendment Act which jeopardises the existential identity of the greater Assamese community,” Nikunja Medhi said.

    The protesters raised anti-CAA slogans and shouted slogans against the BJP, state Chief Minister Sarbananda Sonowal, Finance Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma, Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

    It may be mentioned that the Citizenship Amendment Bill was passed by the parliament on December 11th, 2019 and became an Act. The law came into effect on January 10th, 2020.

    The Act seeks to grant Indian citizenship to the people belonging to Hindu, Sikh, Jain, Christian, Buddhist and Parsi, who have become victims of religious persecution in Afghanistan, Pakistan and Bangladesh and entered into India on or before December 31st, 2014 and lived without documentation.

    Following the passage of the bill, the state witnessed massive protests. Internet services were suspended and the curfew was imposed in 10 districts for 10 days.
