More than 200 residents took part in the demonstration, which was the initiative of local citizens and neither organised nor backed by any political party or organisation, said a statement issued by those who took out the demonstration.

Shadipur-Khampur-Ranjit Nagar is a diverse neighbourhood, populated by Hindus, Muslims, Sikhs and Christians.

Within each of these, also, there are people from different socio-economic and caste backgrounds, as well as from different parts of the country.

In a word, Shadipur is a little bit of a mini-India, the statement said.
