Gujarat 2002


Saajhi Duniya

Statements condemning Gujarat adminis/police conduct


Saajhi Duniya notices with pain and anguish the malicious and unfounded attack on the integrity of human rights activist Teesta Setalvad and several other lawyers who have taken up the cases of the victims of the Gujrat carnage in 2002. On several occasions the human rights activists like Teesta Setalvad have proven their firm commitment to the cause of justice and secular polity. She has even taken risk to her life and security in extremely adverse situations and has stood the pressure of violent communal forces.

 In fact, the human rights activists like Teesta Setalvad are doing the work which different organs of state and judicial system must do because they have the formal and prime duty of protecting the rights of the people irrespective of caste, creed or gender and ensuring that the victims of any breach of constitutional values get justice. These organs of state and judicial system owe their validity to their allegiance to the constitution. Thus, a citizen in the position of Teesta Setalvad must be supported and protected by all possible means so that the forces which are in the habit of trampling the rights of innocent people and snuffing pro-people voices, howsomuch high and mighty these forces be, do not win and do not get emboldened. The smear campaign against Teesta and the other human rights activists is a desperate and cowardly act on the part of those who wish to destroy the plural culture of our nation and whose tyrannical and barbarous schemes to subvert the democracy have been well exposed. Those who lose rational and moral ground, often indulge into such campaigns as we are witnessing against Teesta and other activists.

Hopefully, the deliverance of justice will not be affected by this and those who believe in tyranny and mono-culture, will receive defeat at the hands of both judiciary and peace-loving public.
