Punjab intellectuals against arrests

JOINT STATEMENT BY PUNJAB INTELLECTUALS AGAIST ATTACK ON HUMAN RIGHTS DEFENDERS
Opposing the fascist and undemocratic steps of falsely implicating human rights defenders in a fabricated case of conspiracy to kill PM Modi and planning overthrow of present regime,
Let’s come together in defense of democracy and the oppressed and exploited people!
On august 27, the Pune police raided the houses of several prominent democratic rights activists, and those who have been raising strong voices against oppression of dalits ,tribals and minorities. Advocate Sudha Bhardwaj, Varvara Rao, Gautam Navlakha, Arun Farera and Vernon Gonsalves were arrested. Police also raided houses of press reporter Kumarnath, priest and activist Stan Swami, democratic rights activist and author Anand Teltumbde and members of Revolutionary Writers Association – Aseem and Kranti. Police seized their laptops, harddisks, mobile phones, diaries and other electronic equipment, without providing them copies of the data stored on these devices. We all strongly condemn these repressive steps. In a democratic country such repressive measures against the people should never be undertaken.

The police has clearly aimed, through these vicious acts to falsely implicate these activists in Bheema-Koregaon violence case, falsely implicate them in the alleged plot to kill PM Modi and to spread rebellion in the country, because these activists have been stoutly raising their voice against the severe repression, unleashed by Modi Govt against dalits, minorities, tribals and toiling masses; continuously unmasking the undeclared emergency imposed upon Indian people by the Modi govt.; and its patronage and protection of lynching-mobs and Hindutva terrorism. Modi Govt wants to stifle these voices by putting them behind bars in fabricated cases, as it has done in to other intellectuals, human rights defenders, artists and lawyers, earlier in Bhima-Koregaon case.
Going beyond this, a two-fold wicked move is underway, by raising the bogey of the alleged conspiracy to kill Modi. On the one hand, on the pretext of danger to Modi’s life ground is being prepared to launch an all-out violent onslaught on the democratic rights of the people and unleasing communal and State violence against human rights defenders. It is in fact the continuation of such steps undertaken in the past to usher in totalitarianism regimes, like the Reichtag (German Parliamen) fire and Baroda Dynamite plot in India which were used as tools to facilitate and justify the emergence of Hitler and Indira Gandhi as dictators. BJP mandarins are also making preparations to win 2019 elections by raising the bogey pf danger to Modi’s life. To achieve it, mischievous and misleading propaganda blitz – in which Sangh-parivar enjoys extra-ordinary skills, has already been launched in the media, consistently blaring the terms “Maoist conspiracy” and “Urban Naxals,” to make the propaganda effective. All this is part of a pre-planned strategy of Sangh-parivar and state machinery to crush the peoples struggles and dissenting voices.
Noted writer and activist Arundhati Roy, while slamming the police action against human right defenders, at the instance of Modi Govt, has pointed to the graveness of the situation, “We are close to the declaration of emergency. Instead of raiding the houses of lynching-mobs and day-light murderers, raiding the homes of advocates, poets, writers, Dalit activists and intellectual shows where we are heading to. What is happening is very dangerous. It is preparation of coming elections. We can’t allow this to happen. We shall have to unite against it, otherwise we will lose the freedom we cherish.
The above statement by Arundhati Roy fully depicts the gravity of the situation. We the writers, thinkers, teachers, advocates, educationists, economists and democratic minder intellectuals of Punjab have come forward to to play our historical role of cautioning the people about the fascist acts of present regime. Earlier too, when efforts were made to silence the writers through saffron terror we had strongly protested. Let us unite and strongly oppose the intimidation and terrorizing of democratic rights activists through arrests and searches.
