Their stand remains the same. They stand for humanity. They stand against intolerance, violence, jingoism and bigotry in any form or under any garb. They don't believe in the philosophy of with us or against us. They have and will always raise Their voice for preserving humanity and the show of solidarity from him all inspires and motivates them to continue.
