Kozhikode (Kerala): Kerala's Indian Union Muslim League (IUML) on Monday announced that one lakh workers of its youth wing, clad in black garments, will line the roads to "welcome" Union Home Minister Amit Shah on his visit here on January 15.

"All of them will be wearing black dress and the protest will be held between 3 p.m. to 4 p.m.," said the IUML, the second-biggest component of the Congress-led United Democratic Front.

Shah is to due to address a public meeting to defend the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) and the Muslim Youth League (MYL) workers will line up on one side of the 35 kms road from the airport to the meeting venue.

However, Amit Shah, who will land at the Karippur airport, will reach the meeting venue about 35 km away, on a chopper.

Ahead of the black wall protest, the MYL also plans to print the famous 1893 Chicago speech of Swami Vivekananda and distribute the same at public places on January 12, the birth anniversary of the Indian philosopher.

The IUML was the first to file a petition in the Supreme Court against the Citizenship Amendment Act and since then has been strongly opposing it.

MYL also said that the home minister is asking RSS leaders and workers to initiate violence on the model of what happened in 2002 in Gujarat.

"The violence against JNU students Sunday night by armed mobs was evidence of that", MYL General Secretary PK Firos said at a press conference in Kozhikode said.
