As North-East Delhi has been engulfed by communal riots since February 23, residents of the national capital worked hard to not fall prey to those dividing communities on religious lines reported IndiaTimes.
These, perhaps, are the worst riots, Delhi has witnessed in recent years with close to 20 people losing their lives and more than 150 being injured in clashes between anti and pro CAA groups, which soon took a communal colour.
Residents of Yamuna Vihar said they have never seen such violence and they have vowed to leave no stone unturned to defeat communal forces together.
Residents of the area drew away miscreants who had come to the market area and tried to create disturbance in the region.
In such trying times, people are standing in unity against the dividing forces.
Many took to Twitter to share the heartwarming stories of people extending support to each other and offering help in whichever capacity they can.
In one part of Delhi, a gurdwara opens its doors to Muslims and anyone who needs shelter.
In Seelampur, Dalits blocked the roads against mobs, sheltered their Muslim neighbours.
Police and politicians have forgotten their duty; but the people have courage and heart.#DelhiRiots
