Thousands of Muslims held  protests in major cities in Tamil  Nadu including the state Capital Chennai against the Citizenship (Amendment) Act,  the National Register of Citizens  and National Population Register  on Wednesday.

The protesters demanded the state government pass a resolution in the assembly to the effect that CAA will not be implemented in Tamil
Nadu.

In Chennai, a large number of Muslims men and women carried  tricolour gathered near Kalaivanar Arangam to lay siege of the Tamil Nadu assembly.  Some political parties too lent their support to the protest.

As a result of the protest traffic flow was affected on the main road Anna Salai and others in  Chennai. 

The Muslim outfits  held the protest after Madras High Court denied them permission for  the same on Tuesday.

Security has been beefed up near the assembly and along the procession route, to prevent any  untoward incidents. The police have installed CCTV cameras to monitor the situation. 

Similarly, anti-CAA protests were held in other parts of the state like Coimbatore, Trichy, Cuddalore, Tiruvannamalai and others.

The protest is held a day after a combative Tamil Nadu Chief Minister K Palaniswami said those  who were born in the state would not be affected by the newly enacted law. 

Speaking in the assembly on Tuesday, Palaniswami said the opposition DMK should explain  who in Tamil Nadu would get affected by the CAA.

 Palaniswami said those who were born in Tamil Nadu will not be affected by the CAA.
