“Concerned about the brutal & indiscriminate use of force by the state on Indian Muslim students of Jamia Millia Islamia & Aligarh Muslim University, protesting against the Citizenship Amendment Bill,” FM Qureshi said in a tweet.

More than 100 students and activists have been injured in New Delhi as they clashed with police who used tear gas and baton charges to disperse the protestors at the Jamia Millia Islamia University.

Qureshi said the use of force against demonstrators was evidence that the “Modi Government continues to curb & undermine the rights of minorities in accordance with Hindutva Supremacist ideology.”
