In India, main opposition Congress party has asked all state units to stage protests and hold sit-in demonstration today against the controversial Citizenship Amendment Bill that is a BJP agenda to marginalize Muslims.

The Bill has prompted widespread protests in India including Indian Prime Minister's home state of Gujarat.

On the other hand, a group of more than one thousand Indian scientists and scholars also called for the immediate withdrawal of the bill.

Meanwhile, senior Indian Congress leader Rahul Gandhi in a Tweet said that Citizenship Amendment Bill is an attack on the Indian constitution.

He said anyone who supports it is attacking and attempting to destroy the foundation of our nation.
