Former Union Minister, Yashwant Sinha has recently launched a 3,000-kms march, which will start from Mumbai and will end in New Delhi. This march is said to be against the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) and the withdrawal of it along with condemning the “state-sponsored violence” across the country, creating an environment of terror.

This march will be called as “Gandhi Shanti Yatra” and it will cross five states, namely- Maharashtra, Gujarat, Rajasthan, Uttar Pradesh and Haryana before ending it in New Delhi’s Rajghat on January 30, the day on which Mahatma Gandhi was assassinated.

According to CAA, for the first time in India, religion will be the base of giving citizenship to people. According to the government, it will help the minorities from three Muslim dominated countries namely- Pakistan, Afghanistan and Bangladesh, to get citizenship if they fled to India because of religious persecution. Whereas, critics say that this act is designed to discriminate against Muslims and hence, violates the secular principles of the constitution of India.
