The ongoing protests in Aligarh turned violent many times.
Women are going on a strike at Idgah. On Sunday, women blocked the path to start a sit-in in front of Kotwali, 1 km from Idgah, to which the police objected. When the situation began to become uncontrollable, the city Qazi wanted to come and handle the matter, but in the meantime someone started stone-pelting from the crowd, which made the situation worse. Youth was shot, police vehicles were set on fire, many policemen were injured. The administration also had to shut down the Internet.

Every Friday, women reach there and register their protest. Poet Imran Pratapgarhi, who fought the Lok Sabha elections on a Congress ticket from Moradabad, also joined the strike.

Now the banner of Muttahida Khwatin Committee is installed here and under this the whole dharna is going on. Farheen, who is involved in the dharna, says that giving citizenship on the basis of religion and not giving citizenship on the basis of religion is like killing the constitution. It must be withdrawn. Adiba says the violence in Delhi is regrettable. Hindu-Muslims have been like brothers in India for centuries. Eid-Holi is celebrated together. Violence in Delhi is a conspiracy. The special thing is that no police action has been taken so far in the ongoing dharna-demonstration in Saharanpur.
