In India, police killed at least two protesters in the state of Assam amid massive demonstrations against the Citizenship Amendment Bill — which many have denounced as a major step toward the official marginalization of India’s 200 million Muslims. The upper house of Parliament has passed the highly controversial legislation, which provides a path to citizenship for immigrants from Afghanistan, Bangladesh and Pakistan — unless they are Muslim. The government has also arrested hundreds of protesters, cut off internet access, imposed curfews in parts of northeast India, amid ongoing protests against the citizenship bill.
