North East Delhi has been witnessing riots over the last few days, where the capital city is bleeding and people are frightened for their lives. As per the latest reports, 35 people have died in the violence, and about 200 have been brutally wounded.
In spite of all the bloodshed, we can see that humanity can still keep winning over everything else. Stories of harmony, love and brotherhood have emerged from Delhi.
Gurudwaras in North Delhi, including in Majnoo ka Tila put forward their helping hands for the injured people and set an example of unity in diversity.
This is happening now at Yamuna Vihar in East Delhi.

In Ramesh Park’s Gali No., 10, local Muslims came out in panic but the Hindus and Sikhs assured them that they would be protected.
A mob set fire to a Muslim family’s car and bike in Yamuna Vihar and also torched their tenant’s boutique. A local BJP ward councillor, who is also an old friend of the family, intervened and stopped the mob from causing any more harm.
