After ‘opening’ Noida-Faridabad road, anti-CAA protestors now block road near Jafrabad metro station

The protestors have warned that the road would be blocked until CAA is revoked.

On Saturday, a group of over 500 Muslim women gathered near the Jafrabad Metro Station and blocked road No. 66, which connects Seelampur to Maujpur and Yamuna Vihar. They were protesting against the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) and the National Register of Citizens (NRC).


The protestors have warned that the road would be blocked until CAA is revoked. The police tried to negotiate with the demonstrators to clear the road, but it was in vain. This has resulted in traffic woes and massive security deployment in the area. A local cleric by the name of Shamim Ahmed also tried to persuade the protestors to leave the area.

Clad in Burkha, the women had also raised slogans of “Jai Bhim.” The sudden protests had forced the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) to shut down the entry and exit gates of the metro station. The official Twitter handle also announced that no trains would halt at the said station.


The road blockade at Jafrabad comes day after the ‘protestors’ at Shaheen Bagh reopened the Noida-Faridabad road they had blocked for over two months.


The Supreme Court had also recently appointed fake news peddler Sanjay Hegde to act as an interlocutor along with Sadhana Ramachandran to convince the Shaheen Bagh demonstrators to shift to an alternate site.

The Shaheen Bagh model of blocking roads and causing public inconvenience, in an attempt to force the Government to revoke CAA, seemed to have been replicated now at Jafrabad Metro Station. Fuelled by Islamic supremacy, the protestors at Shaheen Bagh had been on a sit-in protest for the past 2.5 months, thereby leading to job losses and traffic woes.
