On May 23, Natasha Narwal and Devangana Kalita were arrested in connection with the Delhi riot. The court granted bail on the next day - the court observed no ground to keep them in custody as they were merely protesting. But police re-arrested under UAPA.

In December 2019, the Indian government introduced a new Citizenship Amendment Bill, superseding earlier amendments to the Indian Citizenship law of 1955. The current amendment brought in by the Hindu nationalist party-led government allows immigrants of Hindu, Sikh, Parsi, Buddhist and Christian origins from Pakistan, Afghanistan and Bangladesh, living in India without valid documentation (or illegal immigrants) to be eligible to apply for Indian citizenship i.e. Citizenship by naturalisation, and grants a fast track process of six years amending the existing standard eligibility requirement of twelve years for naturalisation.

 

Understandably the introduction of the Act caused protests across India, often referred as anti-CAA protest, as the bill does not protect all religious minorities, nor does it apply to all neighbours. The CAA excludes Muslims. The government responds that Muslims can seek refuge in Islamic nations.
