Five people in Chennai were detained by the police on Sunday morning for protesting against the amended Citizenship Act, the National Register of Citizens, and the National Population Register for drawing rangolis on a street, The News Minute reported. Two lawyers who went to the police station to assist the detainees were also held.

They were kept at a community hall beside the J5 Shastri Nagar police station in the city’s Besant Nagar area for a brief period of time. The protestors were identified as Gayathri, Madan, Arthi, Kalyani and Pragathi. They drew rangolis that read “No CAA”, “Vendam [Don’t want] CAA” with white and red rangoli powder on the streets.

“These are citizens of Tamil Nadu, a state which has a culture of celebrating art, dissent and rationality,” said Gayathri. “We want to be able to put small kolams [rangolis] like this. It is a central aspect of the month of Margazhi. We are living in a police state where we have to beg for permission to put a six-dot kolam. We are only doing it outside homes and not on public roads. How can this be unlawful assembly?”

Police high handedness and brutality in the NDA ruled states is unprecedented !

Democracy is getting pilloried, violated, trampled upon every day by this govt. And we have a legion of so called fanatic Hindu Bakths defending every adharmic action by this authoritarian govt, all in the name of Hinduism !!

It cannot be more ironic and tragic in Kali Yogam !!
