The recent protests that have taken the streets by a storm, against the CAA and NRC, have the students maintaining the centre stage. Social media, news and debates have all been consumed by the issue, and rightly so.
When the youth takes a stand, it's important to hear out their opinions and concerns, which is why we asked millennials their thoughts on the CAA and NRC. here's what they had to say:
"Two words - fascist regime. Imagine, your nation is at unrest, the youth - to whom the country matters the most considering it's their future - are out on the streets and all you care about is crowd control, and even that you're not good at. Forcing laws and bills unto your citizens is nothing but dictatorship. Can they fall any lower than this?" - Shashank, 24.
"If your loyalty to your government is more valuable than your people, you are just enabling the fascists. There's no excuse. Either stand on the right side of history or watch it repeat itself and then remember that you did this, you brought the world to this." - Tanishq, 24.
"If you support the bill, you don't care about your country - don't make excuses. You're Islamophobic, and nothing will change that. And your leader knows exactly how to play this to his benefit, so congrats for letting the fascists fulfil their agenda." - Rushika, 27.
"Congress has these students wrapped around their fingers and they're using them to spread false propaganda. The CAA and NRC won't affect Muslims and even if it does - people should stop being Muslim apologists, they have created enough havoc here - it's time they leave." - Gauri, 37.
"The police have been disgusting. Just gross. Imagine exerting power on literal kids to feel like you've won a battle? How little of a brain do you need to have? I hope I never have to see a world where this becomes normal practice." - Priyanshu, 26.
"I have cried and broken down so many times in the last two weeks, looking at how people of the country are so bigoted. The people don't care and it hurts me - love trumps everything, but people are so afraid to show compassion now, it's crazy how people fear love but love fear." - Jayesh, 32.
"Inquillab Zindabad. That's all anyone needs to say in this political environment." - Shivani, 22.
"These kids are so easy to influence, they are holding these protests to just look "cool" or miss classes. They don't know why they're there, its just blind mob mentality. Destroying taxpayers money and then blaming the police. They need to be stopped, the NRC isn't even going to be implemented, Modi said so himself. What more do these people need?" - Prashant, 35.
