Earlier today the PM tweeted about the CAA and said that it is meant to give 'citizenship to persecuted refugees' and was 'not about taking anyone’s citizenship away. '

He used the hashtag #IndiaSupportsCAA and asked people to use it to show their support for the act.

After his annoucement though, #IndiaAgainstCAA started trending on Twitter

Protests against the CAA and the NRC are going on in various parts of the country, as we speak.
