Speaking to EastMojo at the peaceful protest, Akavi N Zhimomi, a social activist, said, “Any such law that discriminates people on the basis of religion and CAA is one such act which everyone knows that, communities, especially Muslims, are being discriminated and Nagaland is one such state, since time immemorial where all communities have been living in peaceful co-existence without troubling one another. So Nagaland should not be a dumping ground and Nagaland should not be a place where all should of problems should arise.”
