    Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath criticised the ongoing protests against the new citizenship law, saying it is “shameful” that the men sitting in the comfort of their homes have sent the women and children out on the streets to agitate.

    Addressing a rally in support of the Citizenship (Amendment) Act in Kanpur, Adityanath said, “These people do not have courage to participate in the protests themselves. They know if they indulge in vandalism, their property will be seized. Now what have they done?

    He said protesting peacefully is everyone’s right, but if a person damages public property, “we will recover the damage caused from that person’s property and will punish them so that the next generation remembers it.”

    “I would like to say from the soil of India, and especially from the soil of Uttar Pradesh, that if pro-azadi slogans are raised here in the name of protests, like there used to be in Kashmir, then it will come in the category of sedition and stringent action will be taken by the government,” Adityanath said.

    Nobody will be allowed to hatch conspiracy against India while living in India, he said.

    “They started making the women sit at roads. The children have been made to sit. It’s such a big crime that the men are sleeping under the quilt and the women are made to sit at roads. It is shameful,” he said.

    At several places, including in Delhi’s Shaheen Bagh and in Lucknow, women have been leading the protest against the law, alleging it is discriminatory and fearing it targets the Muslim community.

    Some of the protests turned violent in Uttar Pradesh last month in which about 20 people died and the Adityanath government cracked down on those who indulged in arson. The UP government issued notices to the protesters, seeking compensation for the damage they caused to the public property.

    The central government has defended the law, saying it grants citizenship to religious minorities escaping persecution in Pakistan, Bangladesh and Afghanistan and who have come to India by December 31, 2014. It has reassured people that the new law does not take anyone’s citizenship.

    On Wednesday, Adityanath also accused the Congress, the Samajwadi Party and the Left parties of doing politics at the cost of the nation.

    He said protesting peacefully is everyone’s right but if a person damages public property, “we will recover the damage caused from that person’s property and will punish them so that the next generation remembers it.”
