NEW DELHI: Many women staged a sit-in against the Citizenship Amendment Act with their little daughters at the Jamia Millia campus gate on Sunday. Many of these women were Jamia alumni.

The protesters reached Jamia's gate number 7 on Sunday morning before other protesters. Ayesha, a former Jamia student, said she brought her 9-year-old daughter Rehana along with her so that Rihanna could become courageous and be aware about such serious issues.

Almost all the women were accompanied by little children aged between three to 10 years. Another woman, Sofia, said she was there with her two daughters, aged 3 and 6 years. While women continued to shout slogans against the CAA, their daughters held anti-CAA and NRC posters.

The protesters continued their sit-in for about 3 hours. Many alumnae of the Jamia Eye University had held the Tricolour. They said India is as much their country as for any other common Indian. A large number of students and local people also gathered again outside the Jamia campus on Sunday.
