“I have joined BJP to prove wrong those in our community who think BJP is our enemy. We’ll sit together with them over CAA concerns,” he said.

According to india.com, Ali was among those who sat in protest against the CAA-NRC-NPR combine in Shaheen Bagh.

The anti-CAA protests had grabbed headlines with women blocking the Shaheen Bagh road since December 15, with protest site being cleared on the morning of March 24 following threat from the pandemic.
