Sources said that holding a silent protest amid election results also indicates that it might send a wrong message to the people and fuel violence in Jamia.

When the media approached them, they refused to speak showing a poster that silence is being observed on the counting day. When asked why? A boy showed placards where it was written that this was because of the election results and Jamia violence.

Speaking on the results of the Delhi elections, a protester said they do not support any political party.

Sources added that the silent protest will continue from morning to night.
