March 02, 2020

Widespread protest demonstrations have been held in Europe against Indian government's discriminatory legislation against Muslims and ensuing violence in New Delhi.

A large group of students, human rights activists and diaspora group representatives gathered outside Indian High Commission in London for an emergency protest against the Citizenship Amendment Act and the associated violence.

Such demonstrations were also held in seventeen cities across Europe, including Paris, Berlin, Brussels and Geneva, with the central message of "We stand in solidarity with the victims of communal violence in Delhi".

Addressing the protestors, speakers said if the world does not take note and react urgently, the consequences will be disastrous. 

The protesters demanded resignation of Indian Home Minister Amit Shah for his failure to maintain peace, and the arrest of BJP politicians for instigating the violence.
