Shaheen Bagh ‘protestors’ believe that coronavirus is a ploy by Home Minister Amit Shah and Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal to get them to end the protests.

The ‘protestor’ can be heard arguing how coronavirus can also happen to those who travel in metro but no one is asking them to stop. However, everyone wants Shaheen Bagh protests to end, she argues. “Is it necessary we will get coronavirus if we come to protests? It can happen in our homes also. Are we not stepping out of homes? We are going out of houses, children are going to school, taking metro, going to market. 10 people sitting in Parliament and talking. Won’t they get infected? It is an excuse to remove the protests. Either by Amit Shah or by Kejriwal,” she says.
It is imperative to note that in view of the pandemic, all shopping malls, cinema halls and public places except the ones dealing in basic essentials are shut down in Delhi. The central as well as state governments have issued advisory on social distancing. However, for women of Shaheen Bagh, blatant flouting of rules was not enough. Hence they now think that coronavirus is a conspiracy.
