Protests against a controversial citizenship law has moved beyond universities.

Women are now leading their own rallies against the controversial new citizenship law in India.

At least nine people have been killed and hundreds arrested in nationwide protests against the law which offers a path to citizenship for persecuted minorities from neighbouring countries but excludes Muslims.
