For the first time. Rare public protests in UAE

In a rare public display in the uae‘s wealthy emirate of Dubai, small protests were held against Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi‘s controversial citizenship law earlier this month.

Deportation of protesters

Writer and human rights activist Iyad al-Baghdadi said protesters are likely to be deported by UAE authorities because of the fact that political demonstrations are banned in the country.

Writer and human rights activist Iyad al-Baghdadi said protesters are likely to be deported from UAE authorities because uae authorities have banned any protests in the country.

The UAE is known to have deported protesters before, such as Indian construction workers demanding better working conditions.

According to the report, it is unclear whether the UAE has given the green light to protest, for many reasons, including its close ties with India.

Protests in India

There have been widespread protests in India against the law. The Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) is seen as discriminating against the country’s Muslim minority, as it gives non-Muslim minorities from Afghanistan, Bangladesh and Pakistan who fled to India before 2015 a path to citizenship that Muslims did not have in the same place.

For the first time. Rare public protests in UAE

It is well known that Hindus and other religious groups can obtain citizenship if they can prove that they have been subjected to religious persecution in neighboring Muslim-majority countries.

There have been up to 25 deaths so far during nearly two weeks of demonstrations and violence, mostly in the northern state of Uttar Pradesh, which has a population of 204 million, 20 percent of whom are Muslims.
The Indian authorities have blocked Internet services in various parts of the country. Since 2012, the government has suspended Internet services 367 times in New Delhi.

India has the largest Muslim minority in the world, estimated at about 14 per cent of the total population.
