In the presence of activist Teesta Setalvad
Even as the Citizenship Amendment Bill 2019 (CAB) is being debated in the Indian parliament, more and more citizens of the country are coming out in opposition of the anti-constitutional and patently communal CAB-NPR-NRC. In the southern state of Kerala, the Thrissur Anti Fascist Front has passed a resolution against CAB-NPR-NRC. The resolution was passed by ED Davis in the presence of activist Teesta Setalvad who has been at the forefront of the battle against an All India NRC-NPR-CAB. The event ‘Independence of the plurality’ was organised by the Secular Forum on the occasion of Human Rights Day. It was attended by students, cultural activists and other eminent citizens of Thrissur.
The CAB 2019 has lit up a proverbial tinderbox in the North-East with massive demonstrations in Assam, Manipur among other states. Even the chief minister of Punjab, Capt Amarinder Singh has said that the CAB will never pass muster at the state legislature.
