Following huge protests by Delhi police after violent clashes with lawyers at Tis Hazari court premises, Ministry of Home Affairs moved the Delhi High Court seeking clarification on Sunday's order directing that no coercive action be taken against lawyers on whom FIRs were filed in view of the clashes at Tis Hazari Court.

However, Home Minister Amit Shah has maintained a deafening silence in the matter. This is surprising because Delhi Police is not controlled by Lt. Governor of Delhi. Home Minister, Sh. Amit Shah is directly in-charge of Delhi Police.

After hundreds of policemen gathered and protested at Delhi Police headquarters, the Delhi Commissioner of Police Amulya Patnaik addressed them first appreciating the way the police handled the situation ensuing a violent scuffle between lawyers and policemen at Tis Hazari Court during last few days. Then he told the protesters that people have certain expectations from the police and to come up to their expectations they should go back to their duties.

But, Amit Shah has not rendered a public statement in this regard.

Tweeple took to Twitter mocking this silence of the Home Minister, causing the top trending hashtag #WhereIsAmitShah questioning why he hasn’t responded in the matter:
