Condemn strongly the illegal act of executing Mohd. Afzal Guru!

INVITATION: JOIN PROTEST DEMONSTRATION AT JANTAR MANTAR, 4 MARCH 2013, 2 PM

Condemn and expose the violation of all procedures and law! Stand for our Right to Protest and Freedom of Expression!

The illegal execution of Mohd. Afzal Guru has shocked the conscience of all the progressive, democratic people of the subcontinent. By now it is evident for every discerning mind that the claims of the central home minister and home secretary about procedures being followed before the execution have proven to be white lies. None of his family members were aware of this decision of the Government of India.

CRPP on the execution of Mahd. Afzal Guru

Condemn strongly the illegal act of executing Mohd. Afzal Guru!
Condemn and expose the violation of all procedures and law of the land!
Release SAR Geelani the working president of CRPP immediately and unconditionally!

09/02/13 -- The CRPP condemns strongly the illegal execution of Mohd. Afzal Guru. The central home minister and the home secretary have gone on record saying that every procedure has been followed in the case of Afzal Guru. None of his family members are aware of this decision of the Government of India. Nor do the lawyers of Afzal Guru. It is mandatory on the side of the government to inform the petitioners who had filed the clemency petition. Afzal’s wife Tabassum had filed a clemency petition demanding justice for her husband who never throughout the trial got an opportunity to defend himself and demand justice.

Condemn the continuing harassment of Prof. SAR Geelani since the illegal execution of Mohd. Afzal Guru!

COMMITTEE FOR THE RELEASE OF POLITICAL PRISONERS, 18/02/2013: "Condemn the highhanded, authoritarian attempts of the notorious Special Cell's attempt to seize the phones of Prof. SAR Geelani, the President of CRPP!"

In a highly reprehensible act the fascist, Special Cell of the Delhi Police made an attempt to seize the phones of Prof. SAR Geelani, the President of CRPP today (18 February 2013) morning at his residence in Zakir Nagar. On being asked by Prof. Geelani as to whether they had any written orders for seizing his phones and if so on what grounds the Special Cell officers maintained that they don't have such written orders. They insisted that they have verbal orders from their senior officials and they will seize the phones of Prof. Geelani. The Special Cell is putting pressure on Geelani to give away his phones.

It should be noted that despite the highhanded attempts of the Special Cell on the 9 February 2013 to forcefully take him away from the highway when he was travelling to be kept illegally at an undisclosed location till late in the night and then enforcing an undeclared house arrest on him for a couple of days, Prof. Geelani has been fearlessly making his observations clear before the media regarding the blatant violations behind the killing of Mohd. Afzal Guru. Most of the interviews came out to be a scathing indictment of the illegal execution of Mohd. Afzal Guru. It proved unequivocally that Mohd. Afzal Guru and his family were not only denied their basic human rights but were also denied justice from the day one of the trial of the Parliament attack case.

Joint Press Statement on Afzal Guru's Hanging 9 Feb 13

We, the undersigned, wish to express our shock and outrage at the secretive, unethical and blatantly inhuman murder by hanging of Afzal Guru, by the Indian State. This action was undertaken despite evident doubt in establishing Afzal Guru’s guilt in the Parliament Attack case. In fact, the honourable High Court had clearly stated that the evidence against Afzal Guru had been fabricated, and the honourable Supreme Court had stated that death sentence would be awarded to Afzal Guru only to satisfy the collective conscience of the nation.

Statement Condemning the Gagging and Harassment of Professor S A R Geelani, University of Delhi

Today at about 11.00 a.m. personnel of the Delhi Police Special Cell who claimed to be acting under the oral instructions of their superior officers, forced their way into Prof SAR Geelani's house, manhandled him and attempted to snatch his mobile phones. When Prof Geelani asked to see the written orders sanctioning this action, he was told that there were no written orders. The members of the Special Cell continued to occupy his residence and intimidate him and his family for five hours. They left his house only when journalists who learnt of this incident arrived at his residence. The Special Cell personnel have continued to loiter outside his house since then.

Death to the System which has Hanged Afzal Guru in a Dastardly Manner!

Let life be dead, but death must not be allowed to live” - Marx

Revolutionary Democratic Front (RDF) condemns the Indian government in the strongest possible terms for hanging Mohammad Afzal Guru at Tihar Jail this morning in a dastardly manner. The process of his arrest, trial, his sentencing by the lower court and the upholding of the death sentence by the Supreme Court, the rejection of his petition to the president, denial of his right to a judicial review of this rejection, and finally his secret hanging – all point towards the farcical nature of Indian judiciary and the complicity of the entire present political system in persecuting political dissidents.

InCACBI Condemns the Growing Partnership between the State of Gujarat and the State of Israel

Statement by the Indian Campaign for the Academic and Cultural Boycott of Israel (InCACBI)

No partnership with Apartheid Israel!

New Delhi - 2 Feb. 2013

We, a group of academics, activists and artists in India, came together in 2010 to campaign against yet another apartheid regime by extending support to the international campaign for the academic and cultural boycott of Israel. (Visit our website www.incacbi.in for more information.)

The Israeli state consistently and ruthlessly tramples on the academic freedom and cultural life of the Palestinian people; and a continued association with the instruments of such a state is unconscionable to any freedom loving person.
