'Merry Christmas Everyone Apart from Delhi Police': Jamia Students' Protest Against CAA Continues
Protestors hold placards during a demonstration against the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) at Jamia Nagar in New Delhi, Friday, Dec. 20, 2019.

New Delhi: Jamia Millia Islamia students protesting against the amended Citizenship Act celebrated Christmas even as their agitation entered its 13th day on Wednesday.

They were joined in the Christmas celebrations by social activist Swami Agnivesh. Students decorated the road outside the university with Christmas finery and carried on their protest, voicing dissent against the new law.

A student dressed up as Santa Claus was carrying a poster which read, 'Merry Christmas everyone apart from Delhi Police', expressing the students' anger towards the force for its alleged brutality on them on December 15 when the police personnel had entered the campus and lathicharged" them after violent protests outside.

"Jamia's Ganga Jamuna tehzeeb honours all religions and recognises the essential oneness behind the seemingly different paths to God. We celebrated Christmas on the 13th day of our protests," a Jamia students' group said in a statement.

Meanwhile, the Jamia Coordination Committee, which comprises members from various political outfits active on the campus, has called for a gherao of the Uttar Pradesh Bhawan on December 27.

The protest will be against the alleged "state-sponsored crackdown on anti-CAA and NRC protests and on the Muslim community".
