Anhad is organizing a day long convention on August 9, 2016 on Sangh Terror and Failures of Justice at the Deputy Speaker Hall, Constitution Club.
Recently Rohini Salian, the Special Public Prosecutor in in the case related to the Malegaon 2008 blasts case was quoted as saying, ‘Since this new govt came, I have been told to go soft on accused (Hindu extremists)”.
We strongly feel that there is a need to bring facts on Sangh Terror to the attention of the society. The open communalisation of investigating agencies constitutes an enormous danger to the rule of law, to secular democracy, but also to the fight against terror. The attempt to shield the guilty should be therefore frontally challenged and combated at legal, social and political levels.
This convention, perhaps the first of this nature, is an attempt to bring forth the truth about these acts of terror and the ideology which is the inspiration for these dastardly acts. The aim is to present the total picture of the phenomenon of terrorism and the political agenda which is the foundation of such acts of terror.
Speakers include: Ajoy Ashirwad, Apoorvanand, Harsh Mander, Hartosh Singh Bal, Jitendra Ahwar, Kavita Krishnan, Kanhaiya Kumar, Manisha Sethi, Manoj Jha, Niranjan Takle, Om Thanvi, Sanjay Kapoor, Seema Mustafa, Shashi Tharoor , Shehla Rashid Shora, Sitaram Yechury, Subhash Gatade, Teesta Setalvad, Vikas Narain Rai, Wahab Khan .
The programme will begin sharp at 9.30 and will continue till 7pm. The schedule is enclosed.
Kindly cover the convention.
