Kerala groom takes his baarat  on camel with a placard to protest against CAA

A groom in Kerala protested against the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) as he arrived for his wedding ceremony riding on a camel holding an anti-CAA poster in his hands, on the outskirts of Thiruvananthapuram on Monday.

Accompanied by a large crowd mostly comprising his friends and relatives, Haja Hussain carried a placard as he arrived at the wedding hall in Vazhimukku on a camel back. "Reject CAA, Boycott NRC and NPR," the placard read.

Hussain said that he choose to do this to express his protest against the CAA.

"Along with the 'Meher' (the custom where the groom hands over gold or money to the bride), I also gave a copy of the Constitution. CAA should be rejected," said Hussain, who is a local businessman.
