Students are standing in solidarity with those whose homes and properties were bulldozed, reportedly, without notice in Jahangirpuri. On Thursday, around 150 students of Jamia Millia Islamia carried out a protest march in the university. The protest against coercive demolition of Muslim properties and a mosque at Delhi's Jahangirpuri, was organised by Students Islamic Organisation of India (SIO), Fraternity Movement, Students Federation of India (SFI), All India Students Association (AISA), All India Revolutionary Students Organization (AIRSO), Campus Front of India (CFI), Muslim Students Federation (MSF) and DISSC.

According to Musaddiq Mubeen, president, SIO Jamia Millia Islamia, the demolition at Jahangirpuri was not an isolated event. “There is a set plan to target Muslims, destroy them economically, as seen across India in the past month, the protest was against this chain of events,” said Mubeen. The students have demanded that the municipal corporation be held responsible for this “illegal act”. They have also asked that the victims of these demolitions be compensated.
