Most of the protesters had travelled from different parts of the country to take part in the weekend protests. Peaceful protests against the event speakers and organizers took place outside the venue. As RSS Chief, Mohan Bhagwat took the stage, protesters were heard raising slogans: “Stop Hindu Fascism” and “RSS turn around, we do not want you in town.”
