Update on Ram Guha’s detention: The noted historian and many others were detained today for staging a demonstration against the Citizenship Amendment Act and NRC at the Town Hall in Bengaluru, in defiance of the prohibitory orders imposed in the city. He was taken away by police personnel and led to a vehicle parked nearby. Police said the protesters violated prohibitory orders clamped in the city against any protest or demonstration.
Reacting to his detention, Guha said it was “absolutely undemocratic” that police were not allowing even a peaceful protest, which is the democratic right of the citizens. The Communist Party of India too staged demonstrations in the city against the CAA and NRC. PTI
