"We blocked the highway, we stopped the petrol pump and the toll gate, we closed the showrooms. Now every citizen of Noida reaches home 4 hours late, they reach at 2 am late at night. This is our achievement. We have caused a traffic jam from the past one and a half month", Imam said in a bid to incite the crowd in his call for an anti-India movement.

While addressing a protest in Gaya, Bihar where a handful of people staged a protest, the former JNUSU member said that merely protesting in small numbers will not work and that people should start blocking roads and highways.

"Just imagine how easy it is, 500 people just sit on the road and sit in such a way that they (government) are forced to revoke the law (CAA).''

Imam urged the crowd to block the roads in order to cause a blockade to restrict the movement of the civilians like the Shaheen Bagh protest.

'Burn it down'

In an attempt to instigate and mislead the crowd, Imam spoke about the alleged construction of detention camps in Assam and asked the crowd what will they do if there was a detention camp in Bihar. "If there is a detention camp in Bihar then what will you do? Won't you burn it down? Tell me what will you do. Will you simply stage a protest? You will have to burn it down otherwise nothing will happen.''

"We blocked one Highway from past one and a half month but that is not enough. Please understand, Shaheen Bagh is falling alone" said Imam in order to incite the crowd to stage a blockade like the Shaheen Bagh of Delhi. "We will be successful when there will be a hundred Shaheen Bagh's. We will not use bullets, we will not pick stones or lathis, We will block every highway", added Imam.
