People protesting in Shaheen Bagh, mostly women, against the citizenship amendment act (CAA) have written to the SC Judges.

The protestors who were peacefully carrying out the protest since 15 December 2019, left the protest site two days after the imposition of section 144 in Delhi amid rising cases of coronavirus.

Now, they are questioning on the destruction of the protest site after they adhered to the lock-down orders.

Calling the action of the Delhi police and removing the Shaheen Bagh protesters as “disproportionate”, and “unnecessary”, the people of Shaheen Bagh have written to the judges of the Supreme Court of India on Thursday.

The letter stated that the people had already retreated to their homes in the wake of COVID-19 and were at the last stage to submit an answer to the apex court-appointed interlocutors.

The protesters while calling off the protest due to the coronavirus outbreak on March 22 had said that the fight will go on, on the other side of this pandemic.

Their letter had a mention against the destruction of all art installations in Shaheen Bagh and whitewashing of graffitis outside Jamia Millia Islamia.

As on March 24 video surfaced in which laborers were seen whitewashing the walls outside Jamia that were filled with graffitis of anti-government, anti-CAA, NPR, and NRC.

Their letter stated, “while we understand the need for the stricter imposition of curfew and enforcement of pertinent restrictions, the ruthless dismantling and thoughtless destruction of the markers of our physical protest, especially the very structures whose placement is in question in a matter that is sub-judice in the SC, reeks of strong vendetta and ill feelings towards our innocent protesters, locals and sympathizers. It further heightened distrust and perception of being uncovered by the state institutions”.
