IMO News Service

New Delhi: Association for Protection of Civil Rights, New Delhi, has strongly condemned the heinous and cowardly attack on Human Rights Lawyer Prashant Bhushan by the goons of so called Shri Ram Sena, Bhartiya Janta Yuva Morcha and Bhagat Singh Kranti Sena.The APCR is in a press release said: “This attack should be treated on every citizen of India who favors Freedom of Speech. This is our great concern that attack on Prashant Bhushan is planned and belongs to the same chain which killed Human Rights lawyer Shahid Azmi, attacked Human Rights lawyers in Uttar Pradesh and other states of the country, attacked Arundhati Roy, S.A.R.Geelani, attacked girls and boys on Valentine Day in Karnataka,Uttar Pradesh,Madhya Pradesh and other states in the country and forced eminent painter M.F.Hussain to leave the country. It is proved that attack on voice of dissents and freedom of speech is permanent policy of these organizations which preaches hatred, intolerance and violence in Indian community especially among youths resulting to weaken Indian Constitution which provide freedom of speech to each and every citizen of the country. Their work style is reminiscent of Hitler's Germany where troops beat up people who were against the regime. These organizations are threat to the democratic structure of our beloved country.”

“The APCR feels that the current attack is due to the inaction of the Central and State governments on previous matters of the same. The person Tejinder Singh Bagga claiming Office Bearer of Bhartiya Janta Yuva Morcha was seen disrupting Arundhati Roy’s book release; climbing on the bonnet of the car in which Mirwaiz Umar Farooq... And every time he is escorted off by the Police.”

The APCR has demanded that these accused should be given harshest possible punishment. “The Central Government should ban these organizations carrying high level enquiry against these Organizations including their activities, fundings, literatures, supporters and political Godfathers etc. The people of India should also socially boycott these goonda elements of the society disguising themselves in religious and national folds,” the press release stated.
