The ongoing backlash against the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) witnesses several deaths as much as reached on to 23 deaths nationwide. Nine people lost their lives on Saturday during clashes between the protestors and police in northern India.

The CAA allows Hindus, Christians and other religious minorities, excluding Muslims, who are in India illegally to become Indian citizens if they can show they were persecuted based on their religion in their countries of origin such as Pakistan, Afghanistan, and Bangladesh.

Because the law excludes Muslims from the neighboring countries, is unacceptable by the people in India leading to the widespread protests saying that the citizenship law discriminates against the Muslims and hence violates the Consitution’s right to equality.

Uttar Pradesh state police spokesman Pravin Kumar said the nine deaths raised the death toll to 15 in the state and the majority of the dead were young people.

Some of them died of bullet injuries, but these injuries are not because of the Police fire. Only tear gas was used by the police to scare the people away.

The CAA has been slammed by the critics who say that the law has violated India’s secular constitution and have called it as PM Modi’s attempt to divide India.

Narendra Modi has defended the law as a humanitarian gesture.
