Anjuman president Yusuf Savanur said these acts are antiminorities and ant-Dalits and divide people on the grounds of caste and religion. “India has been country of harmony. The Union government should withdraw these acts,” he said.
Former minister A M Hindasageri, former MP I G Sanadi, Anjuman members Altaf Kittur, Basheer Hallur, Dadahayat Khairati, Abdul Munaf Devagiri, M A Pathan, Ismail Kalebudde, Altaf Hallur, Dalit leaders Gurunath Ullikashi, activists Mahesh Pattar and others participated in the protest.
Organisers said the dharana will be held for a week and each day residents of different areas will participate.
CAA unconstitutional Opposing the implementation of CAA, the Dalit Sangrash Samiti staged a protest at the deputy commissioner’ office premises in Belagavi on Monday.
DSS members claimed that CAA violates the very principle of the Constitution. They claimed that the Modi government has come up with these Acts to divert attention from the sluggish economy and unemployment. The debate over NRC is a tool to cover BJP’s failure, he added.
Ambedkar dream for India was to be secular. But the amendments are polarising communities, DSS members claimed.
