Voices of protest against the disputed Citizenship (Amendment) Act (CAA) are getting stronger in campuses across India and abroad. This Act has been labelled anti-Constitution and demands for its revocation have been made on various foreign university campuses.

Protests are underway in India and around the world against the controversial CAA, which grants citizenship based on religion. Protestors clearly state that the Indian Constitution does not allow discrimination against any citizen of the country on the basis of religion, and amendments to the CAA are anti-Constitution and against secular values.

It is because of this reason that the Preamble to the Constitution is being read out on campuses across the country. Students at the prestigious Indian Institute of Science in Bangalore gathered to read out the Preamble to the Constitution and demanded the abrogation of the disputed Act.

At New York’s Columbia University too, Indian students have launched a campaign against the CAA. Students gathered in the university campus raised slogans to save the Indian Constitution and to maintain communal harmony.

In Scotland’s Edinburgh University too, the Preamble to the Constitution was read out. Holding banners and posters in their hands, students at the university campus appealed to save the Constitution of India. 

Indian students gathered in front of the world-famous Eiffel Tower in Paris, the capital of France, against the CAA and here too, the Preamble to the Constitution was recited.

Similarly, thousands of people gathered at the India Gate in Delhi and at the August Kranti Maidan in Mumbai read out the Preamble to the Constitution during protests against the Citizenship Act. 

The Preamble to the Constitution of India is considered to be its soul, and it clearly states that in the Republic of India, there cannot be any discrimination against anybody on the basis of religion.
