A Statement by the Confederation of Human Rights Organizations, Kerala on the World Human Rights Day, 10, Dec 2006

On 10 December 1948, the United Nations General Assembly adopted the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, which has become a universal standard for defending and promoting human rights. Every year on 10 December, Human Rights Day marks the adoption of the Universal Declaration.
10 December
This year Human Rights Day focuses on fighting poverty as a matter of obligation, not of charity. Poverty is a cause and a product of human rights violations. It is this double edge that makes poverty probably the gravest human rights challenge in the world. India accounts for 40 per cent of the world's poor and its fiscal deficit is one of the highest in the world. Almost half of Indian women are still illiterate; about 40 million primary school-age children are not in school.

The period end-June 1975 to mid-March 1977 marks a critical period in India's democratic polity. The ‘state of internal emergency’ declared by the Government of India did away with individual and collective rights of freedom of expression as guaranteed under the Constitution. Those twenty months saw the gagging of free press, forced family planning among minority communities, ban on several political organisations, raid on party offices, setting up of torture camps, unrecorded arrests, increased number of custodial deaths, fake encounters, and ‘missing’. One among the many who were brutally tortured and killed in custody was 24-year-old Varkala Vijayan, political activist and theatre person of Kerala. Very little, however, was known about his death then. His body was never recovered. Given the adverse conditions, the press failed to report the incident. Unlike in certain others, in the case of Vijayan, no substantive inquiry has been conducted even to this date.

Khairlanji Dalit Family Killings : CHRO in solidarity with CAVOW PDF Print E-mail
Campaigns

Confederation of Human Rights Organizations  (CHRO)  Keralam, India  extends its  solidarity  to CAVOW and other Human Rights organizations on  Khairlanji Dalit Family Killings.

Priyanaka was raped, a stick was shoved into the girl's vagina
Priyanka : Vicitim of Fascism
The killing of a Dalit Budhist family in Khairlanji village in Bhandara District of Maharashtra has come as a shock to us. More than the killing, the heinous mode of killing,  indifference of the  police, cover-up by the administrative machinery or main stream media and continued repression of hindutva militant protests against it, is all are more alarming. 

On March 13, 2005, night  Hajabba and his son Hasanabba, two cattle traders from Muslim community were paraded nude near the helipad at Adi Udupi  by Bajrang Dal activists in Karnataka State. In Khairlanji, the witness reports say that all victims were paraded naked, the women raped, a stick was shoved into the girl's vagina, the brother was told to have sex with the sister and when he refused his genitals were crushed with sticks. All of them were attacked on their private parts by axes etc and finally killed. 

If you compare the mode of operation with  Gujarat Pogrom it will reveal the identity of sick minded ideology which promote hatred against minorities, dalits and tribals.  We need to condemn this heinous mode of hindutva fascism and demand immediate punishment of the guilty people.
