Women of this area usually do not go out much and are housewives but for the last four weeks they have been holding sit-in protests and say “we will continue this protest until the govt withdraws CAA”
At the protest site, there is a cut out of India Gate on which the names of those youths are written who died during the anti-CAA protests across the country. What’s remarkable is that the people from all faiths have gathered there and have been visiting the protest site to demonstrate that this protest is not by one community only. The Sikhs were there and holding Keertan, Hindus were holding Hawan, Muslims were reciting verses from Quran whereas Christians were reading from the Bible and at the same time people also read the preamble of the Constitution.
Social Activist DS Bindra, who is regularly spotted at Jama Masjid stairs after namaz on every Friday since protests began, was there with his Sikh fellow men to express solidarity with the protesters. “This fight against CAA or NRC is not of one community, it is a fight for secular India,” says Bindra.
