After Wing Commander Abhinandan Varthaman returned, tensions between India-Pakistan have simmered down. Amid de-escalated tensions, people in Delhi gathered at Assembly Point in Jantar Mantar to support peace. The aim of the Citizens Rally for Peace event was to spread the message of peace and saying no to war. The event named Citizens Rally for Peace featured a chain of people with placards.

ThePrint’s photographer Suraj Singh Bisht recorded some these messages on lens.
