A young woman shouts slogans at a protest against the amended citizenship law at August Kranti Maidan in Mumbai on Thursday. The ground from where Mahatma Gandhi had in 1942 told the British to “Quit India” was packed with protesters on a weekday in a city with a reputation for indifference. Freedom fighter G.G. Parikh, 94, who had participated in the Quit India movement, was at the ground. As were students, political workers and celebrities. Some protesters held up placards saying they were proud of Mumbai police for showing how a peaceful protest can be enabled.
