protest in mumbai

Sickened by the Uttar Pradesh government’s apathy towards the Hathras rape case, citizens of Mumbai observed a candle march on the night of September 30 at Dadar’s Chaitanyabhoomi. The protesters demanded justice for the victim’s family and the immediate resignation of Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath.

 

 

The silent candle march in which other party leaders like Congress President Balasaheb Thorat participated denounced the horrific incident of gang rape of a lower-caste 17-year-old girl in Hathras Uttar Pradesh. People went on the streets to shout slogans demanding justice for the victim’s family. A women’s organisation also observed a similar protest at Andheri.

 

Protests of this nature have erupted all over the country especially after authorities cremated the victim’s body without the family’s permission. Members of the family lamented this act that defied their religious beliefs and robbed them of a chance to say their final goodbyes.

 

 

Hashtags such as ‘#UPCMResign’ and ‘#HathrasHorror’ were used to decry the insensitive behaviour of the state government that had failed in its duty to protect the victim’s family from further harm.

 

 

Other parts of Mumbai also observed protests at the same time yesterday.

 

 

Student organisations such as the All India Students Federation and the Mumbai Youth Congress participated in similar protests not just at Dadar but in other areas like Wadala and Goregaon.

 

To show continuing dissent Mumbai has planned another protest on October 2 at IIT Main Gate Powai.

 

 

Similarly, Delhi will observe a protest on Friday as well at India Gate to demand justice for the victim’s family.
