On Monday, 30 December, civil society group Karwan-e-Mohabbat posted a video on its YouTube page which features veteran actor Naseeruddin Shah reading out the Preamble of the Constitution and Carnatic musician TM Krishna singing the national anthem.

This video comes as protests against the amended citizenship law and the National Register of Citizens (NRC), which erupted in November 2019, show no signs of subsiding, despite the government’s efforts.

The Constitution of India has been a focal point for the protesters, who claim that the government’s actions (including the police crackdowns) run contrary to its provisions.

Eighty-one persons, including students, were detained on Sunday as they gathered to protest against the Citizenship (Amendment) Act and National Register of Citizens near Gujarat University in Ahmedabad. They were taken into custody as the protest had no permission and released soon afterwards, the police said.

Thousands of demonstrators have been arrested and detained across the country.
