“By making and propagating false allegations against the protesters and casting aspersions on their motivations, you, the addressee, and other entities, have not only played a fraud on the general public but have also attempted to bring disrepute to the protesters who are bringing the attention of a large number of people on the issues being pressed by this extraordinary exercise of Constitutional freedom,” the legal notice read.

It also added, “A video posted and endorsed by you on social media site Twitter, which has been played across several media platforms, had alleged that the protesters are taking Rs 500-700 in order to be a part of the protests. Such statements are not only false but also have an effect of defaming the protestors in the national and international community.”

BJP has not yet responded to the notice.

For over a month, the women and children of Shaheen Bagh-Kalindi Kunj area have been sitting in continuous day-night protest against the freshly implemented CAA. The protests recently came under attack by the police and supporters of the BJP government who claimed the peaceful protest was causing traffic congestion.
