Shaheen Bagh Republic Day
  • Indian national flag unfurled by the Anti CAA protestors at Shaheen Bagh in the national capital on the occasion of 71st Republic Day
  • Protestors demonstrating against the amended citizenship law sung the national anthem and read the preamble of the Constitution
  • Protests have been going on at Shaheen Bagh in New Delhi for over a month against CAA, NRC

New Delhi: The Indian national flag was unfurled by the protesters at Shaheen Bagh in the national capital on the occasion of 71st Republic Day on Sunday. In the wee hours today, protestors demonstrating against the amended citizenship law sung the national anthem and read the preamble of the Constitution.

The national flag was hoisted at the protest venue by the mother of Rohith Vemula, deceased student of University of Hyderabad.

Rohith’s mother was accompanied by the famous “dadis” of Shaheen bagh and former JNU student Umar Khalid.

The protesters, numbering a few thousand, recited the national anthem in unison as they observed India’s 71st Republic Day.

The preparations for the celebrations had begun at least two days earlier, with volunteers sharing messages inviting people to reach the protest site and aim for a headcount of at least ten lakh people, and in the process to create a sort of world record.

The national anthem recital was followed by sloganeering of “Bharat Mata ki jai”, “inquilab zindabad” and “NRC-CAA murdabad”.

Shaheen Bagh has been the site of a protest where a large number of anti-CAA protesters, primarily women and children, have been camping since December 15.
