1. Appoint a monitoring committee to stop hate speeches

The Biennial General Assembly calls up on the Government of India and of the states to constitute monitoring committees to stop inflammatory and hate speeches by political and religious leaders. Recently the country has witnessed some self- proclaimed acharyas and sanyasins to pour vitriol against minorities in states like UP. The authorities have been lackadaisical to initiate legal action against there vituperation lest they would loose votes of certain castes .This inaction in the long run would destroy the secular fabric of the country. It is reported widely that Sangh Parivar elements are behind the Saharanpur communal riots. The BJP president Amit Shah went to the extent of saying that his party would win the assembly elections with huge majority if the riots continued. We urge the U.P government to arrest all those who have incited the communal hatred and ensure the safety of the vulnerable people. The NCHRO welcomes the initiative taken by Tamil Nadu government and judiciary to release 1300 under trials under Cr PC 436 (a). We also urge the state government to release all prisoners who have completed 10 years in jail irrespective of their religion on Anna's birthday.
