A group of lawyers gathered today at the Supreme Court lawns to read out the Preamble to the Constitution of India.

Copies of the Preamble were distributed to the lawyers present and the same was read out peacefully in unison.

Emphasis on the upholding of the tenets of the Constitution of India has gained traction over the past month, with protests against the purported unconstitutional nature of the Citizenship (Amendment) Act, 2019 as well as the alleged police brutality inflicted upon students of various universities. The same has sparked widespread protests and marches across the country. In retaliation to curb the same, severe clampdown in the form of mass detentions and internet shutdowns have taken place.

A statement was also issued by the Supreme Court Bar Association today condemning the violence on JNU students:

"The Executive Committee of the Supreme Court Bar Association today resolved to strongly condemn the violence against JNU students by anti-social elements. It further resolved to condemn the inaction on the part of Delhi Police, and called upon the authorities to act and ensure that the Rule of Law prevailed", the statement said.
