It is to be noted that the protests against India’s controversial citizenship law led to clashes between Muslims and Hindus on Monday and Tuesday in which rocks, swords and even guns were used.

During the riots, mobs torched several vehicles, buildings and a tire market, causing widespread devastation in the affected areas while routine life was suspended.

In this regard, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal said that the army should be deployed and the curfew was imposed in the affected areas.

Protests against the controversial citizenship law enforced by the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party of India have been ongoing for almost two months, but the severity of it has surfaced only recently when the US president arrived in India.
