Thousands of protesters, including actors Farhan Akhtar, Jaaved Jaaferi, Omprakash Mehra and Swara Bhasker, marched through the streets of Mumbai on Thursday to oppose the amended citizenship law (CAB).
Chanting 'Hum kya maange... Azaadi!' slogans, the number of demonstrators grew from hundreds to the thousands as they spilled into the Nana Chowk traffic intersection from August Kranti Maidan, where Mahatma Gandhi in 1942 told the British to quit India. Bollywood came out in support of the protest. Have a look at the pictures:
Several parts of India have been witnessing violent protests ever since the Citizenship (Amendment) Bill was passed in Lok Sabha last week.
