The gradual unfolding of events in protests such as the ones in Jamia Milia and Shaheen Bagh have allowed people to spot the radical Islamic movement lurking about. Intelligence agencies have said the SIMI has become active again, waking up their women’s wing – Shaheen Force
The more one looks at the protests over the new citizenship law, it appears that it is increasingly becoming a radical Islamic movement rather than a peoples’ movement.
It all began in a very systematic manner at the Jamia Milia University and over the days, the violence spread to Uttar Pradesh, Mangaluru and other places. Take for instance the protests at Shaheen Bagh. The venue has become a forum to raise anti India slogans and drive fear into the minds of the Indian Muslims that the new law would affect them, while in reality it does not concern the Indian Muslims at all.
