- Activists express outrage at the Killing, hold protest at Assam Bhawan in Delhi
By Abdul Bari Masoud
New Delhi: The BJP-led Assam government came under severe condemnation for police brutalities in Dholpur-Gorukhuti area in Darrang district of Assam, killing two persons in direct police firing and injuring several. The CPI(M), the largest constituent of the left front strongly protests and condemns the State sponsored police brutalities in Dholpur-Gorukhuti area of the state. It demands a judicial inquiry under a sitting judge of the Guwahati High Court, an end to all evictions, compensation to those killed and injured. Social media users also condemn Assam police brutalities using twitter handle.
In the name of evicting “suspected illegal migrants” from Government land, the Assam BJP Government has unleashed violence against citizens of India, poor peasants who have been tilling the land for decades. The entire programme is communally designed and is targeted entirely against local Muslim minority communities. CPI(M) described it as an outright assault on the constitutional guarantee of equality and security for all citizens of India.
The horrific brutalities on the peasants captured on camera require immediate action against the police personnel involved. The CPI(M) demands a judicial inquiry under a sitting judge of the Guwahati High Court, an end to all evictions, compensation to those killed and injured. It supports the efforts of the secular and democratic forces in Assam to expose and fight back the toxic communal hate politics of the BJP Government in Assam.
Outraged by watching the gruesome videos of killings and torture of innocent Muslims in Assam, Fraternity Movement, an NGO, gave a call #BlockAssamBhawan on Friday in Delhi. It said merely keeping the anger in our hearts is not enough and everybody must do join the protest at Assam Bhawan.
Tahir Ahmed Khilji said the way police massacred Muslims in Assam is absolitley not torlerated.
The way the police and journalists massacred Muslims in Assam is absolutely not tolerated and it is very wrong to put Maulana Umar Gautam, Jahangir, Kalim Siddiqui Sahab in jail by accusing them of conversion,
Another user Khan Aqueel Ahemad Khan tweeted under #HindutvaStateTerror . He asked who gave the right to a mediocre photographer to kill a civilian badly?
who gave the right to a mediocre photographer to kill a civilian badly? Together with the police, it is clear that the government is backing these people and raising thugs.#AssamHorror #Assampolice #HindutvaStateTerror
