‘Love-Jihad’, NIA, and Democratic Rights

As the Hadiya-Shefin matter comes up for hearing today, PUDR urges the Apex court to take note of the serious violation of democratic rights of the parties involved in this so-called case of ‘Love-Jihad’. PUDR believes that the case is being used in order to provide legitimacy to the supposed presence of ‘Love-Jihad’ or ‘terror marriages following conversion to Islam’ in the country which is nothing more than a communal political agenda being pushed in the name of national security. For the past few months the courts of the country have been seized of the issue.

PUDR condemns the Criminal Laws (Rajasthan Amendment) Ordinance promulgated by the Rajasthan government on 7 September 2017, preventing magistrates from taking cognizance of complaints against serving and former Judges, Magistrates, and public servants without sanction of the government.

PUDR condemns the arrest of peasant leader and RTI activist, Akhil Gogoi on charges of sedition and waging war by Assam police.

Gogoi as the President of the Krishak Mukti Sangram Samiti (KMSS) had been at the forefront in leading agitations against displacement of the poor in the name of building dams, land mafia and inadequate agricultural assistance by the state government.

गढ़चिरोली सत्र न्यायालय में चले मुकदमे का फैसला, जिसमें पाँच लोगों, जी.एन.साईबाबा, महेश तिरकी, पांडू नरोटे, प्रशांत राही और हेम मिश्रा को आजीवन कारावास और विजय तिरकी को 10 साल की कैद की सज़ा सुनाई गई है, एक विचारधारा और नृशंस यू.ए.पी.ए. कानून द्वारा प्रतिबंधित संगठन के राजनैतिक अभियोजन का स्पष्ट उदाहरण है। इन छः अभियुक्तों को एक प्रतिबंधित संगठन सी.पी.आई. (माओवादी) का सदस्य होने का अपराधी ठहराया गया है और इसलिए उन्हें राजसत्ता के खिलाफ ‘षड़यंत्र’ करने का दोषी माना गया है, जबकि उनके खिलाफ, इस ‘षड़यंत्र’ को अंजाम देने के लिए किसी तरह का अपराध करने के कोई सबूत मौजूद नहीं हैं। उन पर यू.ए.पी.ए.

Political Trial Results in Pernicious Verdict: UAPA and the Gadchiroli Sessions Court judgment

The trial and conviction of six persons by the Court of Sessions Judge, Gadchiroli, sentencing GN Saibaba, Maheshi Tirki, Pandu Narote, Prashant Rahi and Hem Mishra, to life imprisonment and Vijay Tirki to ten years, is an unconcealed example of a political trial of an ideology and an organization under the draconian UAPA.
