India citizenship law: Dalits fear 'discriminatory' legislation

India's new citizenship law raises fears among Hinduism's 'lowest' social group that they will be targeted.

    Hundreds of thousands of people in India have been protesting against a new citizenship law, saying it discriminates against Muslims.

    But many Dalits - those in the so-called lowest social group in the Hindu caste system - fear it will also make conditions worse for them.
