Shaheen Bagh Jashn e Ekta

New Delhi, Feb 6 : Amid the ongoing protest at Shaheen Bagh against the Citizenship Amendment Act, people from all religions offered prayers here on Thursday.

The event was aimed to end the atmosphere of “fear and violence” that is prevailing in the country and to send out a message of communal solidarity. People from all religions — Hinduism, Islam, Sikhism and Christianity — participated in the event.

We are united against those who are trying to divide the country, people said.

Sultan Sheikh, a Muslim, was dressed as a Sikh man. “Our Prime Minister talks about recognising someone from the attire. I want him to recognise to which religion I belong,” he said, adding that don’t try to divide our country. We are united and will live together.

Sant Yuvraj, a follower of Hinduism, said: “We are doing this for the unity and solidarity of the country. All religions are united here. No one should consider Shaheen Bagh as a demonstration of Muslims. Sikh people are chanting Gurbani here while Christians are reading Bible along with Muslims who are reading ‘aayats’ from Quran and I am performing a ‘havan’ as a Hindu sant. Even this ‘havan’ has been organised by all the people irrespective of their religion”.

Alexander Fleming, a Christian, said: “This event doesn’t belong to any political party, and the Citizenship Amendment Act introduced by the government is against the Muslims”.

AJay Kumar Lallu

Uttar Pradesh Congress president Ajay Kumar Lallu and party workers were detained while trying to march towards Raj Bhavan in Lucknow during a protest against the new farm laws.

Lallu said: “I want to say that I welcome the vaccine. I would like to thank the scientists who have developed it. It is the duty of the government to help people in times of a pandemic. When the pandemic struck, people contributed through money and other ways. Now that the vaccine is here, my primary demand is that it should be provided to people for free.

CM Yogi Adityanathji should get the vaccine first because that will help people get rid of all the misconceptions about the vaccine.”

Earlier, SP chief Akhilesh Yadav said he would not take the “BJP’s vaccine”. Following criticism, he had subsequently tweeted the same day that he had “full confidence” in the ability of scientists, but would not take the BJP’s “political vaccine”.
