There have been protests across the country against the newly amended citizenship law and have turned violent in BJP ruled states only.
Be it in Delhi, where the Union Home Ministry is in charge of law and order or Karnataka and Uttar Pradesh, where the BJP is in power, the protests have turned violent and people have died too. Could there be a well-oiled machinery comprising mainstream parties and radical groups that fanned the violence? The footage and the probes conducted in these places clearly suggest that there is a pattern and the violence was completely orchestrated.
