Khoj Khabar: The Supreme Court on Wednesday said that it cannot say repeatedly that protesters at Shaheen Bagh in Delhi has the right to protest but they cannot block roads even as the communal clashes in the northeast district claimed 27 lives. The top court said it had tried to find an out-of-the-box solution by appointing interlocutors to persuade the protesters looking at the prevailing conditions.
A bench of Justices Sanjay Kishan Kaul and KM Joseph said that though the court had thought of adopting an out-of-the-box solution but did not have any idea as to how far it had succeeded.
As police conducted flag marches and security personnel spread out across the northeastern edge of India's national capital in a bid to quell the violence raging since Monday, Prime Minister Narendra Modi in his first reaction appealed for peace and brotherhood.
The task of bringing the situation under control was given to National Security Advisor Ajit Doval.
"What has happened has happened. Inshallah, there will be complete peace here," Doval said as he walked through the mostly mixed neighbourhoods of northeast Delhi and met locals.
Away from 'leader-speak', fear hung like a heavy cloud over the area, littered with the detritus of a riot -- mangled and charred vehicles, bricks, stones and jagged glass.
Tonight on Khoj Khabar with Deepak Chaurasia, we will ask did the flare from Shaheen Bagh set Delhi on fire?

"They have been saying 'Babbar Sher' will come out. It has finally emerged and see, what happened in Delhi?" says Rajiv Jaitly, BJP.
"Why are children chanting pro-Pakistan slogans, why are they raising anti-India slogans?" asks Mukesh Nayak, Congress leader.
"Whatever has happened in Delhi should be condemned. Waris Pathan has apologised for his statement. But did Kapil Mishra, Parvesh Varma and Anurag Thakur apologise?" asks Mufti Manzur Ziyaee, religious leader.
"If anyone makes inflammatory speeches, irrespective of any party, he or she should be taken into task," says Rajiv Jaitley, BJP spokesperson.
"For the last two days, I have been speaking to police officials. We should trust the Delhi Police," says Deepak Bajpai, AAP leader.
"Unfortunately, the RSS and the BJP are blamed for every violence. Why are they blaming Kapil Mishra for the Delhi violence. I didn't find anything wrong in his speech," says Sangeet Ragi, political analyst.
"The RSS and the BJP are dividing the nation. Hate speeches of Kapil Mishra should be condemned. Action should be taken against him," Akhlaq Ahmed, Islamic scholar.
