In India, the Bharatiya Janata Party’s ally National People’s Party leader Agatha Sangma has demanded the repeal of the anti-Muslim law, Citizenship (Amendment) Act.

Speaking at a meeting of constituents of the ruling National Democratic Alliance in New Delhi, he urged the BJP government that as it has repealed farm laws keeping in mind the sentiments of the people, the CAA should also be repealed.

Meanwhile, the Allahabad High Court has declared the detention orders as illegal under the National Security Act against six Muslims who were booked in connection with anti-CAA protests in Mau in Indian state of Uttar Pradesh.

The double bench of Justices Sadhna Rani and Sunita Agarwal said in the order that detaining authority could not explain the delay in forwarding the representation before the state government and the explanation given by state government was not sufficient.
