PUCL Public Meeting: Prosecution of Binayak Sen- Implications for Indian democracy!- 30th Dec 2010-Thursday @ 5.30pm @ T. Nagar

Nationwide, ordinary citizens have been shocked by the prosecution, conviction and sentencing   of Dr. Binayak Sen to life sentence for offence of sedition under sections 124A read with Section 120B of the Indian Penal Code, Sections 8(1), 8(2), 8(3) and 8(5) of the Chhattisgarh Vishesh Jan Suraksha Adhiniyam, 2005 (Chhattisgarh Special Public Safety Act) and Section 39(2) of the Unlawful Activities Prevention Act, 1967. Dr. Sen, one of India's celebrated medical professionals has dedicated his life to India's most impoverished and vulnerable communities. His contribution to public health has been acknowledged by the Chhattisgarh government itself who incorporated his medical work in official health programme. Yet the same Chhattisgarh Government could not tolerate Dr. Sen questioning its policy of support to the unlawfully constituted and armed `Salwa Judum' force. It is useful to remember that the Supreme Court of India itself has directed that the Salwa Judum should be wound up.

            PUCL has consistently been campaigning for the repeal of the laws under which Dr. Binayak has been convicted as these very enactments are an infringement on the democratic fabric of the country. History has shown whether it is the sedition law in the Indian Penal Code or the later laws like POTA and TADA, the state has always used these laws to suppress and silence dissent and criticism of state action.  The Chhattisgarh Special Public Safety Act and Unlawful Activities Prevention Act, 1967 are nothing else but POTA and TADA in a new avatar.

           The prosecution of Dr.Binayak sen is being showcased as a warning to all citizens of the fate that befalls anyone challenging the state. Arise citizens of India! Lets raise our voices and show that  we will not tolerate silencing the voices of freedom and independence.
