Legal Support for Victims

altChennaI :We strongly condemn the arrest of Jawaharlal Nehru University Students Union president Kanhaiya Kumar and the police crackdown on the students and their supporters.  The way in which the BJP government acted after the February 9th incidents makes us wonder whether we are living in Germany under Hitler.  The draconian sedition law enacted by the colonial British Govt against the freedom fighters is now used against students who had assembled to express their views about the way in which the Indian Government executed Afsal Guru.

The hanging of Afsal Guru without following the mandatory procedures such as informing his wife and child was condemned by eminent persons such as Justice Markandeya Katju and Justice A.P.Shah.The Supreme Court while confirming his death sentence had said he should die to satisfy the conscience of the nation, not a perfectly legal way of dismissing an appeal.  Even the BJP’s alliance partner People’s Democratic Party of J&K had condemned it. Speaking in support of the right to self determination is not a crime. It is said that somebody in the crowd had shouted pro Pakistani slogans.  Now a video clipping in circulation shows that it is some ABVP students shouting these slogans. It seems it is a pre planned mischief to attribute false motives to the students who had organized the event.  The Delhi Police is picking  up many innocent youths saying that they resemble JNU students.

The former Delhi University Prof S.A.R. Geelani was also arrested yesterday under sedition and criminal conspiracy charges for conducting a press meet in support of Afsal Guru.
