‘Our Muslim brothers are with us’: Sikh-Muslim Solidarity at Farmers’ Protest

Tens of thousands of farmers who perceive three farm laws passed by the BJP government as highly detrimental to their interests, have been protesting for about two months in Punjab, before arriving on the borders of Delhi to launch their protests.

Since November 26, hundreds of thousands of farmers have converged on Delhi borders in the face of the Modi government which prevented them from entering the national Capital.

The protest sites are hotspots of communal harmony. Sikh farmers encircle the Muslim farmers so that they could offer their prayers in peace. At some protest sites, Muslims have also organised community kitchens to feed the farmers.
