5:03 pm
a very a side sticks of wood so maybe i don't know whether they were using blades nails. kind of brutal attack that was. thousands of people joined the demonstrations as they continued into the night and spread across the country in hyderabad right police fired tear gas and rubber bullets the police have been accused of being heavy handed but they say they've used necessary force. if it was a peaceful mob it would have been peacefully dispersed but it caused damage to public property arson and set motorcycles on fire protesters threw stones at police and we have been injured it's in the police interest to push them back and bring law and order. the controversial law allows citizenship to be granted to minorities from 3 neighboring countries but the opposition says it discriminates on religious grounds especially against muslims and goes against india's secular constitution
5:04 pm
and with anti muslim rhetoric increasingly being used in india pressure is mounting on the prime minister to reduce tensions. for now protesters say they'll continue to demonstrate until the citizen law is revoked and their voices are heard for him mohammed al jazeera. ideas a social entrepreneur and campaigner in new delhi he says for muslims in india have been the most vocal critics of the citizenship law the process of spread beyond that community. there is no denying the fact that that it is a muslim community that that is more normal than perhaps the rest of the country but having said that a letter to cover the fact that of the protest may have started at the the dummy a unit would be even to the predominantly. sunni would be their muslim students really go and also protest at another unit was because the league of the university what of you are now starting at around the same time both of them predominantly you
5:05 pm
know led by by students from the same community other than what if this is especially after the crackdown that happened at the memory of plumbing of course and then followed by a good reason you were to be yes really obvious in that this is not by the lingshui the universities all over india are getting at you know at colleges in mumbai colleges i'm in luck know in hyderabad been some of those protests being very symbolic in h.r. what some other perhaps being very you know showing signs of violent weather been they've been instances of stone throwing as well but we're 3rd important to understand that you know you might really 3 organized young people coming together are and yet there is not like 11 large among those the little protests are there is appeal and there is a big spectrum of the kind of protests that we are seeing some of them extremely peaceful just symbolic what others perhaps getting out of and showing the kind of not with their. opposition parties in the gambia are rallying against president
5:06 pm
saddam a barrel they want him to honor his promise to stamp the empire the end of the year well he made that commitment in a deal to form a coalition government 3 years ago than our own has since changed his mind change will serve his full 5 year term but on a barrel 2216 election victory ending the 22 year rule the former leader you know you janet. well let's move on to iraq nomen the president there to end or monday to nominate you prime minister. mattie resigned last month but that stern list to come preacher says you are calling for a complete overhaul of the political system at least 476 iraqis have been killed and some 20000 injured since the unrest began. to burn and there is
5:07 pm
widespread anger over corruption high unemployment and of the services more from soon to fall to use in baghdad for us this smaller of the largest bloc in parliament supposed to put forward you know my nation for the prime minister by the end of the day he would tell us about this. well it's highly unlikely at this point that this will happen and one of the reasons for that is that it's actually unclear who is the largest bloc in parliament this is a peculiarity of the iraqi political system because many members of parliament switch allegiances based on the vote and it's not the vote is not something that is made public for everybody to know how many seats in parliament is held by the various blocs now constitutionally the president of the republic is supposed to task the biggest block in parliament to nominate a new prime minister but just yesterday president sent
5:08 pm
a letter to the speaker of parliament asking him who the largest bloc is and it's it's it's quite strange that this is something that has happened so late so close to the deadline and it also shows just how confusing and untransparent this process is let's remember that iran which is the party that won the 2800 parliamentary elections they were the party that held the largest number of seats but they actually abdicated their responsibility to nominate the prime minister is equally saying that it should be the people who choose. the next candidate so as of now it appears that the selection will not take place today it appears that it might take place on thursday which is an additional 4 days from the deadline because the president said he did not actually received a prime minister other loved his resignation until december 4th thursday would mark the 2 week that line after that and soon as we have any idea who these proposed candidates may eventually be well it's an extremely obscure process there have
5:09 pm
been several names that have been floating around the one that we've been hearing most often is mohamed al sudan who is a member of the dawa party which is the most powerful political party that emerged in the wake of the 2003 overthrow of saddam hussein he's somebody who held several ministerial positions and he's certainly part of the political establishment and already protesters out in tahrir square have said that they will reject him because he embodies the continuation of the current political system and that's exactly what they don't want they want a complete overhaul they want a new face somebody who will actually be able to bring about change now president barham salih did also say that whoever is chosen as prime minister will only remain in that position temporarily until fresh elections are held but it remains to be seen who exactly will be appointed into that position by the end of this week so
5:10 pm
a full turn larry 1st in baghdad thank you. well let's head back to the camp with the opposition policies have been rallying against president. nicholas in the capital but on jewel of the cross and nicholas how did this process play as. well at the beginning there was hundreds of people in the crowd swelled up to tens of thousands and they've successfully handed over their petition to the spokesperson of the government a petition asking for adam to step down their slogan is no which in the local language means it's time it's time for adamant barrow to step down remember in 2016 on this very road there were tens of thousands of people protesting against the former longtime president in support of adam a barrow today we saw the same people who supported adam a baro asking him to step down he had made a promise that he would stay in power just for 3 years but it seems he says that he
5:11 pm
will continue to stay to power complete his full mandate he says he's respecting the constitution but that's something that the protesters here are not buying they believe that he just wants to cling on to power they fear also that some members of his government are leaders of a performer political leaders or close allies to john and although he had promised at the time to change change for the people here and while there has been more political freedom change has been slow to come when it comes to security reforms going to comes to the change of leadership when it comes to basic things like power electricity and water shortages that this country is suffering some of the protests are telling me that the situation is worse than before and words amazing about this protest you know something like this would have never taken place under me but it seems that people are no longer fearful to voice their concerns to go out on the
