Dharna against attack on the film unit of Water in Varanasi
The events in Varanasi over the last fortnight confirm our worst fears that the administration under the BJP government has become an instrument in the hands of the fascist hordes. This is a consequence of the green signal given by the U.P. and Gujarat governments, supported by the Prime Minister and the Home Minister giving a clean chit to the RSS.
The abject surrender of the BJP government of Uttar Pradesh in the face of the threat issued by the RSS organizations to the unit of the film Water, its actors and director, is an unacceptable demonstration of the government’s capitulation in the face of the lawlessness unleashed by the Kashi Sanskrit Raksha Sangharsh Samiti (KSRSS).
threat to the democratic and constitutional rights of all law-abiding citizens.
Through this dharna of artists, scholars and concerned citizens, we reiterate our resolve not to let it pass.
