As thousands of farmers from Haryana and Punjab marched towards Delhi to protest against three farm laws, they were welcomed with water cannons and lathi charge, in an attempt to dissuade them. But undeterred, farmers have not stopped marching and have vowed to continue agitations unless the government scraps these laws.

In the midst of all this, mosques in Delhi have now come forward to organize food for the farmers, depicting that humanity is above everything.

Twitter user Mohammad Ajmal Khan shared a picture and wrote, ”Several Mosques in Delhi have organized food for the farmers arriving from Punjab and other states. Farmers stood by our side during CAA-NRC now it’s our turn for the sake of humanity. This very compassion & unity is bothering the intolerant rulers.”
