Covid-19: Jamia committee calls off anti-CAA protest for now

Mar 22, 2020 08:56 IST

The Jamia Coordination Committee and Alumnus Association has temporarily called off their anti-Citizenship Amendment Act protest, which entered its 100th day on Saturday, amid the coronavirus outbreak. The group which was formed after alleged police brutality on the campus on December 15, in a statement on Twitter said, they were suspending the process with a heavy heart but great hope in their hearts. They appealed to all protesters to take the situation with utmost seriousness and save themselves and others from the fatal illness. The Jamia Coordination Committee on Saturday distributed face masks and sanitizers to all the protesters followed by a briefing on the Covid-19 pandemic.
