Kochi/UNI: National flags were hoisted at all institutions under Kerala State Waqf Board and on Churches under Kerala Regional Latin Catholic Council (KRLCC) on the Republic Day on Sunday, followed by a reading of the Preamble of the Constitution.

The event was organised to promote National integration and register protest against Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA), Waqf Board officials said on Monday.

Waqf Board controls thousands of institutions including mosques and orphanages in the state.
The Preamble of the Constitution was also read out on the occasion, Board Chairman and CPI-M leader T K Hamza said.

He said the event, first in the history of Waqf Board, was organised to protest against CAA. The board did not issue any circulars to organise the event.
About 1000 Latin churches under 12 diocese in Kerala hoisted the flags.

A pastoral letter that stressed on the need to protect the Constitution was also read out, followed by an oath to protect the Constitution, KRLCC spokesman Sherry J Thomas said.

The pastoral letter also urged the government to reinstate Anglo-Indian members in Parliament and State legislature, he said.
