Why you should avoid Shaheen Bagh road this evening. If you plan to travel through Shaheen Bagh road today between 4 pm and 5 pm then do think twice as some residents are expected to hold protest, said sources.
Notice of the protest has been circulating on the social media and WhatsApp groups about how some activists are planning to take out a rally from Shaheen Bagh to the local police station in protest against attack on an activist by goons in the locality a few days ago.
Looking at the campaign going on the social media for the last more than two days it is understood that a large number of people would turn up and if it happens so then the road will certainly be choked, creating hardship for commuters, said a resident.
Since the attack on Muhammad Pervez Yusuf, some residents have been mounting pressure on the authorities to take action against the accused, with little success. “We will continue our fight against increasing crime and attack on activists in the locality.
This act cannot be tolerated in a civil society. The goons are attacking people who are critical to the policies of the new dispensation,” argued activist’s supporters.
