Women from different faiths wore Hijab to take part in a sit-in at Jantar Mantar on Tuesday against what they claimed was "singling out of Muslim women" by police during recent protests in the national capital.
The demonstration 'Azad women for Azadi' saw women of different faiths coming together to express solidarity with the protesters.
Iqra Raza, a Delhi University student, who organised the protest, said, "My cousin was singled out by police during a citizens' march held last week. A policeman punched her in the chest. We are protesting against the targeting of Muslim women by the forces. It constitutes a hate crime."
