Anti-CAA demonstrators at Delhi’s Shaheen Bagh on Sunday won several hearts after they opened a road at the venue to allow a Hindu funeral cavalcade go by.

Talking on the issue, a protestor stated, "We respect each other and by allowing the procession to pass through, we have not done anything unusual. We have allowed buses and ambulances also."

Shaheen Bagh had been a prime subject of conversation in the natioal capital ahead of the assembly polls. The BJP raised the issue a number of times. BJP leader Parvesh Verma stirred up a controversy when he said that people from Shaheen Bagh could rape and murder if the are permitted to go on unhindered.

He also went on to say that if the BJP was voted to power, then Shaheen Bagh would be open within an hour.

He was also served a notice by the Election Commission of India for his remark.

Incident of violence has also taken place at the protest site. Few days ago, a women reporter wearing a burqa was caught at the location as she was trying to make videos.

The women of Shaheen Bagh became suspicious of the burqa-clad woman while she was recording the protest. They caught the reporter and shouted at her, which is when Delhi Police came to her rescue and took her.

Several videos of Gunja Kapoor, who runs a YouTube channel 'Right Narrative' have gone viral on the internet.
