Shaheen Bagh calm as northeast Delhi burns

New Delhi, Feb 25 (IANS) The epicentre of the anti-CAA protests, Shaheen Bagh, has been calm while reports of fresh violence continued to pour in from northeast Delhi on Tuesday.

Amid violence in northeast Delhi, the women protesting against the CAA at Shaheen Bagh are determined to continue the peaceful protest till the CAA is rolled back.

One of the protesters said: "We know the violence is being perpetrated with the complicity of higher ups to scare us but we are not going to be cowed down."

Another protester Zulqarnain said: "We are here to oppose the CAA and our fight is with the government, not with our Hindu brothers. It is the BJP who wants to make it a communal issue."

A person on the condition of anonymity said the protest at Shaheen Bagh entered the 73rd day on Tuesday even as the apex court will hear the petition about the blockade on Wednesday. The people here are making speeches in solidarity with the people who have lost lives during the protest and blame BJP leaders for instigating the crowd against the anti-CAA protesters.
