Opposition politicians in India held a protest outside the country’s parliament in New Delhi over a controversial new citizenship law, Euronews reports.

The legislation provides fast-track naturalisation for people fleeing persecution from several countries, but excludes Muslims.

People from different faiths and backgrounds have united over opposing the law because it is seen as threatening the secular fabric of India.
