Syed Taseer Ahmed, who was one of the first protesters at Shaheen Bagh said:
Whether Prime Minister Modi or Home Minister Amit Shah or anyone else, they can come and talk to us. If they can convince us that whatever is happening is not against the Constitution, we will end this protest.
Only time will tell if PM Modi accepts the invitation or not.
