Conscientious citizens across 11 cities of India came together to protest the lynchings and violence and show solidarity to our fellow citizens
There are very few things that unite Indians: biryani, cricket and the collective cringe of listening to Dhinchak Pooja. However, yesterday, conscientious citizens across 11 cities of India came together to protest the lynchings and show solidarity to our fellow citizens, who seem to be targeted for the way they look, the food they eat and the god they worship.

The #NotinMyName protests across the nation demonstrated that as citizens of this nation, we condemn violence in whatever form it might present itself. Let alone metros like Bengaluru, Delhi and Mumbai, even in Tier 2 cities like Kochi and Lucknow, the sound of #NotinMyName reverberated across the protest venues.
Here is a glimpse from the protests across the nation:
