Across many states of India, protests broke out in opposition of the recently passed Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA). As of this post, 25 people were killed during the protests.
The Indian police has a simple explanation – the protesters are killing themselves to frame the police. But as more and more videos pop up on the social media, the typical bullshitry of the police is exposed.
That’s what you get for sending the police to train in Israel. While Israeli police are trained to hate the native population of the land they illegally occupy, the police of other countries are trained by them to hate and kill their own citizens.
The Citizenship Amendment Act allows people from Afghanistan, Pakistan and Bangladesh to obtain Indian citizenship after 5 years of residing in the country, provided they are not of Muslim faith. Normally, by law foreigners can only apply for Indian citizenship after 11 years of living in the country.
The people protest because they either fear the flood of immigrants will alter their demographic, linguistic or cultural uniqueness, or because they see the exclusion of Muslims, as well as the people from countries like Nepal, Sri Lanka or Myanmar, as anti-constitutional.
The submitter of the videos alleging to show the encounters between the police and anti-CAA protesters asked to remain anonymous. This is understandable when police repression in developing police states is involved. ACAB:
