Film Review
(Film: Saffron War by Rajiv Yadav, Shahanawaz Alam and Lakshman Prashad, Duration 61 Minutes, Contribution, Rs 95, Available from: 632/13, Shankarpuri, Kamta, Post: Chinhat, Lucknow, UP)
With the rise of Hindutva movement during last three decades there has also been an attempt to understand this phenomenon through analytic essays, articles and films. These films have also served the purpose of spreading the awareness about the rising threat of communal politics, and dangers to national integration due to the rising communal tide in the society. The Mumbai violence, Gujarat genocide, Kandhmal amongst others has been the object of serious study and analysis amongst the activists and scholars. ‘Saffron War: A War against nation’ is the latest in the series of the significant works, which have come out lately. This film is a unique combination of analysis of Hindutva ideology, its cooption of dalits in to communal politics and the gradual manipulation of the low caste movements from their struggle for social justice to their current mobilization in the fold of Hindutva where they are made to believe that the real problems of society are not due to the caste structure but the external one coming form Muslim minorities.

Stop Torturing innocents: Human Rights Activists PDF Print E-mail

Thiruvananthapuram: Human rights activists condemned police atrocities against Muslims in the name of investigation into the assault on college teacher. They demanded to stop unwarranted statewide raids in the offices of Popular Front of India and Social Democratic Party of India (SDPI) and houses of its activists. There are reports of illegal custodies and custodial tortures. And police are also giving false reports to the media about the seized materials during raids as if the CDs and booklets were having anti national features.
The duty of the police is to find out real culprits behind the attack and produce them before the law. The law enforcers should not become law breakers. There was more serious crimes in the state in the past committed by various groups like CPM and RSS including murder. But there were no police activities of this kind then. This kind of discrimination will cause unrest and insecurity in the society, opined statement by human rights activists.
The statement was signed by C R Neelakandan, A Vasu, Prof. T B Vijayakumar, Dr. M S Jayaprakash, Reni Ilin, Nikhila Henry, N P Chekkutty, Jamal Kochangadi, K M Rama, Selvaraj, K Prasannakumar, K M Venu Gopal ans Dr. J Devika
