On 20th March 2020, all national dailies covered a stirring headline- “Ranjan Gogoi, the former Chief Justice of India nominated as a member of Rajya Sabha, by the President”. The same headline also covered the piece that many members of parliament (especially, the opposition) protested the oath-taking ceremony. The reason for stating this piece of news is not validating whether the protest was right or wrong but to give an instance of how Protest helps in showing the disagreement. It is worthy to mention here that there is a distinction between protest and revolt. Protest does not involve the use of Violence.
