Hyderabad: Ms Khalida Parveen, a 65-year old social activist, who was one of the participants in a flash anti-Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) protest at Tolichowki on Jan 23 found herself in troubled waters as Tolichowki police in plain clothes following her constantly.
On Wednesday last, the police visited Ms Parveen’s house and informed that it is mandatory for her to inform the police when and where she is going to attend anti-CAA protests. Taking this opportunity, she showed her hospitality by offering tea to the cops and explained them that it is her democratic right to take part in the protest. She also explained to them why she was against the CAA.
A flow of visitors could be seen at Ms Parveen’s house taking advice and help in regards to the protests.
Earlier on Monday, the Hyderabad police registered a case against Khalida Parveen for organising a flash protest by women against CAA in Tolichowki.
In response, Ms Parveen said, “The police are doing their job and we are doing ours. We will take legal advice on this unfolding situation. My work is activism. CAA and NRC are completely against the spirit of the Constitution. If we do not raise our voices now, then when will we do that?”
