“I was on BBC Urdu’s popular programme sairbeen to discuss the situation in Delhi and the future of anti-CAA protests. In a very limited time, I could only make two small points. One, this seems to be a tactic for the administration/state to evacuate the space occupied by protestors and strengthen the narrative of how anti-CAA protestors are violent (anti-national etc.). Second, on the question of future of these protests, I said people on the ground would know better that how long they can fight this but anti-NPR/NRC resolutions passed by states like Bihar can be problematic without rejection of CAA.”

–Musab Iqbal

(I don’t understand a word of Urdu but those who do or who know the politics & poetry of Musab will find this interesting.)
