Campus Front condemns Sangh Parivar cruelties on students at AMU.
Campus front National President PV Shuhaib in a statement has strongly condemned the ruthless attack unleshed by Sang Pariwar hooligans with the support of police on students at Aligarh Muslim University.
The Violence erupted over a portrait of Muhammad Ali Jinnah that has been hanging inside the students’ union hall for 80 years was a well-planned and deliberate move of right wing hinduthwa to ravage a premier institution that has always stood for humanism, tolerance and progress. Universities are supposed to be a place for debate and discussion. But the latest incidents at AMU are a shameful reminder that the forces of intolerance and intimidation affiliated to the ruling party are expanding their project of forceful saffronization into reputed universities too.
PV Shuhaib Said that the recent attack by Hindu Yuva Vahini with the backing of police force is a reflection of agenda of RSS-BJP to disrupt the atmosphere of amity and peace in campuses after seeking permission from administration for the performance of sakhas. Instead of stopping violent mob of hinduthwa, the police force brutally beat up the innocent students without any qualms. This behaviour of UP police of joining perpetrators instead of providing protection to the victims proves that not only that they they are incapable maintining law and order but also they themselves are a threat to it. He pointed that if this violence was motivated by their patriotism, they would rather have marched to the parliament demanded the removal of portrait of savarkar from the parliament hall, who inspired the assasination of Mahatma Gandhi and sought the clemency of British colonialists. This amount of violence is a result of Sangh Pariwar indoctrination, which blinds these people from seeing historical facts of our country. Campus Front demanded an independent inquiry into the matter and strict punishment to the Sangh Parivar members and police who involve in these heinous attack.
Government's inaction on BJP member shows the ineffectiveness of rule of Law
Campus front Delhi State President Sabi Ahmed in a press statement said that Government's inaction on Manish Chandela, Who openly claimed on social media that we had burnt the refugee camp of Rohingyans, shows the ineffectiveness of rule of Law and the entrenchment in culture of impunity that is taking deep roots all around us.
The Manish Chandela is a member of Bharatiya Janta Yuva Morcha which is the “Youth Wing” of Bharatiya Janta Party (BJP). Ironically, there is no response against this kind of a person from BJP as a national political party abided by the constitutional principles.These kind of hate-mongers are a potential threat to the society where multi-religious people are residing in peace.This person should immediately be arrested as he also threatens in social media to carry out such crimes in future.
He also said that “this kind of attitude of our legal system toward criminals is a major factor behind these crimes being prevalent in our society”. it seems that the hate crimes are now being extended to the helpless immigrants only because of their religious identity”.
Campus front demands proper and immediate investigation into the matter and strict action against the culprits.
Symptomatic of facisit agenda to
make JNU a RSS Institute: Campus Front
Campus Front National Vice president MS Sajid in a statement said that the removal of top heads from various departments of JNU over mere allegation of their refusal in complying mandatory attendance order shows the undemocratic attitude of administration towards university, and it is a symptomatic of fascist agenda to make JNU a RSS institute.
Since the appointment of a pliant Vice-Chancellor who was known for his proximity to RSS, the students of this university have been vehemently protesting against the coercive decisions which are against the academic logic, freedom and democracy. The VC’s instant imposition of an lllegal and irrational policy of demanding compulsory attendance of students, which was never passed nor discussed in any democratic decision-making body again fuelled various kinds of struggles.
JNU has been the target of the Modi government since it came to power. No doubt, the regular attacks on JNU such as Massive cuts in admission intakes, violation of reservation policy, harassing teachers by denying their legitimate dues, improprieties in the conduct of selection process of officials, showing lackadaisical approach in missing case of student Najeeb Ahmed, etc are part of the fascist regime’s wider agenda to wreck the university which always stand as an exact opposite to the saffron politics and policies.
MS Sajid said that mandatory attendance in a research university like JNU is absurd and universities excel not because of restrictions or order, but in an atmosphere of academic freedom where the students can freely cultivate their thoughts and ideas.Through various kinds of enforcements, the administration is setting up means to harass a select number of students for their political activism.
He also said that non compliance of such decision by the university heads, which 98 percent of the JNU students voted against, can be considered as a dissent and an act in favour of students.
Instead of adopting required measures to gain the confidence of students and faculty the administration is playing havoc.
He also added that, however the recent decision is not unprecedented considering the trajectory of fascist moves that happened in the institution.
Ultimate goal of administration becomes much easier to achieve if student's voice can be stymied and suppressed. As to defeat this,students community should be able to fight and come together irrespective of political differences.
Campus Front urges the student’s community to come forward with vigour and mark their protest to protect institutions from fascist onslaught.
Police Brutality Unjust to the Public
Campus Front of India National General Secretary T Abdul Nasar strongly condemned the police brutality on Fathima Nafeesa, mother of missing JNU student Najeeb and other activists who were peacefully protesting infront of Delhi high court against the CBI's lack of interest in investigation of missing case.
It's been a year since Najeeb went missing.CBI is bound to give a believable explanation to the nation and to Najeeb's family as to why they are still clueless about his whereabouts. Before transferring the investigation to CBI,several times the police has faced the wrath of the court for their manner in which it has been carrying out the probe,but unfortunately the CBI is also acting in same manner and it shows the degree and impact of political intereference or pressure exerted on CBI executives to protect the ABVP members.Because everyone knows that he had gone missing after a scuffle with ABVP members.
T Abdul Nasar also said that Today,Police attacked Najeeb's mother along with scores of agitating students without any Provocation from their part.They were forcefully taken to custody and are reportedly being detained in various stations.This is an attack against people's democratic rights.He also said that this deliberate act was an unjust to the public and indicates the bent of mind of police executives.
Campus front condemns this shameful act and also expressed their concern over the non seriousness of CBI in public matters.
It's Omission rather than Commission Report :Campus Front
Campus Front National Gen. Secretary T Abdul Nasar in a statement said that AK Roopanwal Commission Report is falsifying the truth and shielding the instigators. It was constituted to find the circumstances that led to death of the Dalit scholar Rohit Vemula,but instead of finding the truth the commission brushed aside the facts which led him to commit suicide.The report claims that Rohith’s suicide was not due to the discrimination, but because he was unhappy owing to several other reasons, such as being unappreciated.Furthermore, the report cited that he did not belong to the Scheduled Caste community.From the observation of commission,it seems that probe didn't give much significance to the death note dripping with anguish and sarcasm over the discrimination faced or the rigged acts he confronted as being expelled from hostel,cut off the scholarship and even barred access to public places in campuses.In lieu of stringent investigation as per the mandate,the commission worked to label him as a Non Scheduled Caste and it unveils that report is whitewashing the UoH Vice Chancellor Appa Rao Podile, Union Labour Minister Bandaru Dattatreya and others, who have been booked under SC/ST (Prevention of Atrocities) Act and for abetment of Rohith's suicide.
Nasar also said that since the beginning, ruling party is labeling him as a non Dalit to hide their "anti Dalit mentality" and they succeeded by fabricating this false report,but they cant flee from the responsibility of this institutional murder by bolstering the Commission report which is biased without exception.
He also added that,commission recommendation to a proper counselling mechanism to research scholars is actually inept for students but it is fine to the varsity officials in order to cultivate a treatment without caste basis. Submitted report is better called an omission rather than a commission perusal.
Campus Front also Demand a concrete move from judiciary to find the culprits by appointing a new judicial enquiry and also asserted that the reason behind the death of Rohith was mistreatment and harassment by the varsity and also the intervention of central ministries into the issue.
GORAKHPUR TRAGEDY IS OWING TO THE NEGLIGENCE AND I
Campus Front National President PV Shuhaib in a statement said that Death of 60 children including infants in Gorakhpur's Baba Raghav Das Medical College due to the alleged disruption in supply of oxygen is owing to the negligence and incorrigible misconduct on the part of government.This hospital is situated in the constituency of Yogi Adityanath. The Chief minister is busy spreading communal hostility towards minorities and finds no time to intervene into the issues of his own constituency. This is a pitfall to the society. The Chief minister and the minister of health should be held responsible for the dreadful tragedy. He added that the government should conduct a high level investigation and prosecute those who are responsible for the incident and provide necessary compensation for everyone who suffered.
Campus Front expressed their condolences to the bereaved families.
Campus Front condemns the draft National Medical C
Campus front National President PV Shuhaib in a press statement strongly condemned the National Medical Commission bill tabled in the parliament, terming it "an attempt to commercialise the medical sector and subvert democratic values".
Instead of obliterating the corruption and inadequacy of medical structure, the centre is introducing a new system which is inconsistent, lack of accountability and transparency in structure and process.
Through the replacement of existing apex medical education regulator with a new body, the centre is seeding corporate culture in educational sector.
Proposed Bill embodies an entitlement for profit oriented institutions to operate and determine fees in 60% of their medical seats without regulation. It is like the government is retreating from the regulation of fee structure and controlling corrupt practices. Moreover, it violates the basic requirement of modern governance structure that a regulatory body must be multi-stakeholder, transparent, and accountable.
PV Shuhaib said that referring the contentious bill to standing committee for examination is acceptable, but most importantly the committee is obliged to consider the public interest. He also said that if corruption in MCI was the main reason for bringing in NMC, the government should have taken corrective measures rather than introducing a new bill.Had this bill be passed, it will be a big disaster for entire health sector and medical education gets de-democratised.
He added that, the way the centre introduce controversial bills without proper discussions and debates marks the government's sauce in collecting public opinion.
Campus Front asks the government to step back from nodding anti people policies.
