Members of Muslim outfits continued with their waiting agitation at Muthupettai in Tiruvarur district for the second day on Sunday opposing Citizenship Amendment Act, National Register of Citizens and National Population Register.

The agitation organised by all Jammath and Muslim outfits since Saturday evening had the participation of a large number of Muslim men and women, besides children.

The protesters urged the State government not to conduct a survey relating to National Register of Citizens and National Population Register. Efforts by the local police to pacify protesters through talks did not fructify. Presence of police personnel has been beefed up at Muthupettai in view of the agitation.

Nagapattinam

Members of Thowheed Jamath staged a demonstration in front of the office of Superintendent of Police in Nagapattinam condemning the lathicharge on anti-CAA protesters at Washermenpet in Chennai.

State Vice-President of Thowheed Jamath P. Abdul Rahman who led the protest slammed the police saying brutality unleashed on peaceful protesters was against the tenets of democracy.

The State Government must desist from inflicting harm on the anti-CAA protesters through the police, he said, and demanded withdrawal of cases.

The protesters raised slogans demanding that State Government must adopt a resolution against CAA, NRC and NPR.
