A rally with thousands of people was organized on Friday in the city under the banner of the United Muslim Forum, to protest against the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA).
The MIM and several other civil society organizations took part in the rally, which started from Mir Alam Eidgah and went on till Shastripuram.
The participants, who included a large number of women, raised slogans against the CAA, NRC and NPR.
Participants of the rally raised slogans against the BJP-led union government and condemned its policies.
Shops and business establishments in the Old City were closed from 1 pm to 5 pm as traders extended their support to the rally.
Meanwhile, the police submitted to the High Court, that was dealing with a petition filed by the organizers of the rally, that they had given permission to hold the rally in a peaceful manner.
The court then directed the police to register cases against the agitators if they broke the law in violation of the permission granted to them.
It also asked the Director General of Police to ensure that motorists did not face problems due to the rally, and asked him to get the entire procession videographed from the beginning to the end.
Many of the city's Muslims had also taken out a march along the Tank Bund to Dharna Chowk
a few days back against the CAA.
