After being released from Tihar jail on Thursday night, Bhim Army Chief Chandra Shekhar, alias, Ravan on Friday visited historic Jama Masjid and called for revoking the newly introduced Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA). Swarmed by his supporters and locals, Chandra Shekhar read out the “Preamble to the Constitution”. Before visiting Jama Masjid, he paid obeisance at Bhagwan Valmiki Mandir near Gole Market and also visited Gurdwara Bangla Sahib. He also visited the Karbala at Jor Bagh.
Chandra Shekhar was received a rousing welcome by his supporters at Jama Masjid where anti-CAA protest was taking place.
“This (anti-CAA) movement is for the future of this country, for our identity and to uphold the Constitution. It is our responsibility to strengthen it,” he said.
He also said that it is the fundamental duty of citizens to protect the Constitution and also urged people to carry out peaceful protests against the CAA. A Delhi court Wednesday had granted bail to Azad who has been accused of inciting people during an anti-CAA protest at Jama Masjid here on December 20, while restraining him from visiting Delhi for four weeks.
The court further directed him not to hold any dharna in the national Capital till the elections here and said that the nation cannot be exposed to anarchy. The court also said that before going to Saharanpur if Azad wants to go anywhere, including Jama Masjid in Delhi in 24 hours, police will escort him there.
