Hyderabad: Mushaira and protest meeting against Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA), National Population Register (NPR) and National Register of Citizens (NRC) started at Khilwat Grounds.
After the meeting, the national flag would be hoisted at midnight.
It may be mentioned that earlier, the United Muslim Action Committee, of which All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM) is a part had decided to hold the meeting at Charminar.
Later, AIMIM President and Hyderabad MP Asaduddin Owaisi tweeted, “Police rejected permission for protest meeting at Charminar, they’d advised us to instead move it to nearby KHILWAT GROUND which we’ve accepted. Poets’ Protest Meeting against #CAA_NRC_NPR will begin on 25th night & we’ll welcome India’s Republic Day by hoisting tiranga at 12 AM”.
Well-known poets Rahat Indori, Sampat Saral and Lata Haya along with young voices such as Nabiya Khan, Aamir Aziz and Husain Haidry will participate in the event.
A huge number of people is likely to participate in the protest meeting.
