Civil Liberties Monitoring Committee strongly Condemns the arrests of prominent activists and intellectuals Sudha Bharadwaj, Vernon Gonsalves, Gautam Navlakha, Varavara Rao, Arun Ferreira and others
These arrests and raids across the country on the homes of activists and intellectuals is an attempt to silence critics. it is also a try to create a fear among the masses and terrorise the activists. the activists those who are targeted today are struggling for the justice and creticising anti people attitude of the government of India and the BJP. It is a matter of fact that these arrests are politically motivated by keeping in view of upcoming election. it is an unjust act of government of India.
CLMC appeal to the international community to raise the voice to defend the human rights defenders and demands to the government to immediate release of the arrested activists, drop of all the charges and stop the harrassment.
