Constitution in hand, Bhim Army chief Azad returns to Jama Masjid in Delhi

The Bhim Army chief Chandrashekhar Azad, with a copy of the Constitution in one hand, was on Friday back at Delhi’s Jama Masjid, almost a month after he was arrested following a protest against the citizenship act in the area.

The 33-year-old Azad sat on the steps of the iconic mosque in the old city of the Capital hours before he is bound by a court order to leave Delhi after being released on bail on Thursday night.

‘Peaceful protest is our strength. People from all religions who support us should join us in great numbers to prove it to the government that these protests are not led by Muslims alone,’ Chandrashekhar Azad was quoted as saying by news agency ANI.

Surrounded by supporters as well as protesters, Azad also read the preamble to the Constitution.
