Protest Against Police withdrawal of permission

The decision of Mumbai police to withdraw permission for holding the National Convention for Peace Secularism and Democracy, to be held in Mumbai (June 1,2) is most condemnable. Large number of delegates committed to Peace and Secularism were to assemble to chalk out a plan to strengthen the democratic and secular values, to dispel the myths about the 'other' communities, to ensure communal amity from local to national level. Also prominent peace activists and intellectuals were to participate in this.

It is not only a infringement on democratic rights of the citizen's to assemble and exercise their democratic right but also the signs of times where talking about peace and secularism is looked at with suspicion. In the present atmosphere where the police itself are communalized to a great extent, as obvious from its role in current Gujarat carnage and the not so long ago Mambai riots, it should alarm the citizens at large about the direction in which we are heading. It is time that police authorities are trained in the democratic values, communal harmony and concept of civic peace cutting across different communities. There is a need to nurture the values of Communal Harmony inherent in our constitution; there is a need to promote the values of pluralism, which can act as the only guaranty against the repeatedly occurring communal violence. We urge upon the state authorities to snub the highhanded attitude of the police authorities and ensure that all necessary permission be granted to this convention.
