Shops and establishments in the city, run by members belonging to the Jain community were closed today to protest against the ban on ‘Santhara’ (fast unto death) by the Rajasthan High Court a couple of days ago.

Majority of the shops dealing with electric, electrical goods, textile and paper, are run by Jains in and around the city.

Some 500 members of the Jain community took out a rally, under the banner of Jain Maha
Sangh, some three kms in the city, to show their protest.

Meanwhile, a section of Jains also condemned an advocate, appearing on a TV channel in support of the judgement, and who reportedly asked Jains to leave India and move to Jainisthan, police said.
