NEW DELHI:   While the counting of votes for the national capital polls are underway, the city’s Shaheen Bagh is witnessing silent anti-CAA protests, the epicentre of demonstrations for nearly two months. The women protesters have been staging silent protest since the morning, and no person was seen delivering any speech during the demonstration.

Sources Media said that holding a silent protest amid election results also indicates that it might send a wrong message to the people and fuel violence in Jamia.

When the media approached them, they refused to speak showing a poster that silence is being observed on the counting day. When asked why? A boy showed placards where it was written that this was because of the election results and Jamia violence.

Ahead of counting of votes, locals in Shaheen Bagh said they have voted for development work and were eagerly waiting for the results.

Media Sources added that the silent protest will continue from morning to night.
