It has been over two months since the sit-in protest at Shaheen Bagh began on December 15, 2019, after the Citizenship Amendment Act was passed on December 11, 2019. The protesters blocked a major part of a highway connecting Delhi to Noida to protest against the implementation of the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA), National Register of Citizens (NRC) and the National Population Register (NPR). Similar protests took place in other cities such as Mumbai, Kolkata, Chennai and Prayagraj. Here are some important moments from the protest.
