HYDERABAD, April 6. ``Fasting, rallying, camping and a meeting.'' That was how the Coalition for Peace and Harmony-Hyderabad, reacted on Saturday to the Gujarat violence to condemn it.
The protesters drawn from several progressive organisations and trade unions and women's organisations gathered near Sundarayya Vignana Kendram in the morning and began fasting first. With banners and headbands condemning the violence, the protesters raised slogans against communal forces.
Some artistes painted their anguish in colour. The plea was uniform -- halt crimes against fellow human beings and religion had no place in a civil society.
Speakers condemned the sowing and reaping of violence in Gujarat by communal forces. Passersby visited the camp and signed their protest. The coalition would send the signatures to the President later. Leaders of civil liberties groups too took part in the campaign to register their pain at the mindless killings in the name of religion. Later, in the evening a peace march was taken out from Sundarayya Vignana Kendram to Indira Park.
