Not in my name: Citizens to protest against lynching at Jantar Mantar

#NotInMyName join citizens’ protest in huge numbers in Delhi to express revulsion and rejection of the culture of mob lynching! tweeted activist Kavita Krishnan. It is understood that on June 28 will hold citizens’ protest open to all at 6:00 pm at Jantar Mantar, New Delhi.

“…The latest being of 16-year-old Junaid on June 23, 2017 in Delhi (NCR) on a suburban train. As citizens let’s get together and assert that the killings and the hatred being unleashed – Is Not In Our Name. If not now then when? Right to Life and Equality is a fundamental right enshrined in the Constitution of India. It is time we the citizens of India reclaim and protect our Constitution,” wrote the group organising the protest in event timeline on the social media.

This protest has come only a few days after a call was given to Muslims to wear black wrist band while offering Eid prayer to celebrate the festival. Some people did and many didn’t follow the call.
