“Criminalizing Political Beliefs: Black Laws & Political Prisoners ” Gathering for Human Rights. PDF Print E-mail
New Delhi: The gathering was hosted by the Democratic student Discussion forum at Delhi University, under the theme of “Criminalizing Political Beliefs: Black Laws & Political Prisoners ”.
We should at least realize that the issue of political prisoners raises questions of immense ethical and social significance in front of the nation. How can a democratic state imprison thousands of its citizens solely on the basis of their political beliefs and actions, or for just trying to live in dignity and peace?  Recently we saw the conviction of cases in Dhaar Madhya Pardesh, Prof. G.N. Saibaba and four others by Gadchiroli court for their political beliefs .
Gautam Navlakha of People's Union for Democratic Rights (PUDR)  pointed out that the Saibaba judgement reveals how the UAPA is a weapon that allows the government to enter into a conspiracy against those who dissent or have political opinions against it. we try to understand what need to make this type of black laws by government. The banning of organisations, proscribing their literature, punishing the membership of banned organisations ensures that information about the war the state is waging against its own people in different parts of India – in Kashmir, Manipur or Chhattisgarh – is suppressed under the guise of  penalising “terrorist acts” and “terrorist organisations”, he stated. Navlakha also showed how the vast swathe of offences named in the UAPA, and the modus operandi prescribed by it, fell afoul of fundamental rights guaranteed by the Constitution.
Malem from CRPP said,  we demand immediate release of all political prisoners, most of whom from the marginalized sections of the society like Religious Minorities, Dalits , Adivasis who are branded as ‘Maoists’, ‘terrorists’, ‘jihadis’, 'anti-nationals'  etc. From journalist K.K. Shahina to student Jyoti Babasaheb, From activist Arun Ferreira to teacher Wahid Sheikh, the list of people who have been tortured under UAPA is a long one.

Administration is accountable for communal tensions in Sheopur: NCHRO PDF Print E-mail

altSheopur (Madhya Pradesh) : “The administration is the only responsible for the communal tension occurred last days, for holding RSS shakha in the city”, human rights organization NCHRO alleged through a press conference. Fact finding team member,Dr Kalpana Chittorgarh, Joint Secretary, NCHRO Rajasthan said that if the administration wanted it could control the situation by bringing the two groups to compromise, but it made the situation tenser by taking partial actions.Police failures to deal effectively with communal tension arise mainly from their own inadequacies and also from unabashed politics at the local level.  One of the team members Ansar Indori said that calling no meeting of Peace Committee even days after the incident took place, proves that the administration did not intend to end the tension from the region. On the other hand the actions taken by the administration till now were totally partial. The police took immediate actions on the FIR filed by the Hindu organizations and put persons belonging to the Muslim community behind bars after arresting them. Maintenance of public order is a sovereign function of the state  administrative machinery has become so highly politicised that it is rendered incapable of carrying out basic sovereign functions.
