Thousands of protesters from the Ravidas community took to the streets in different parts of the Punjab. The members of the Ravidas community are protesting against the demolition of the 15th century Guru Ravidas temple in New Delhi’s Tughlakabad. The temple dedicated to the spiritual leader Guru Ravidas was razed last Saturday on the Supreme Court’s orders over allegations of encroachment. Protesters are demanding that the razed temple be reconstructed.
