20th July to 20th August: Campaign “Against Violence, Towards Humanity”

Hon. All,

the like minded Organisations, Political Parties, Institutions, Colleagues, Members, Friends, Comrades,

You are well aware that renowned rationalist and founder Chairman of Maharashtra Andhashraddha Nirmoolan Samitee (MANS) Dr. Narendra Dabholkar was brutally murdered in Pune on 20th August 2013. Soon after this murder, Comrade Govind Pansare, one more social activist and progressive thinker, was shot at on 16 th February 2015 and died later on 20th February, 2015. A period of almost 17 month has lapsed thereafter. One more intellectual, Prof. Mr. M. M. Kalburgi was murdered on 30th August 2015. The investigation of this case is being done by Karnataka State CID.
It is regretted that there is a very little progress, after the arrest of a suspect each in Pansare and Dr. Dabholkar Murder case. In Kalburgi case, there is no progress at all. Arrested both the prime suspects in Dr Dabholkar and Pansare case are Dr. Ravindrasinh Tawde and Sameer Gaikwad, members of Sanatan Sanstha and Hindu Janajagaran Samitee (HJS). However, state Government and Central Government has neither taken any stand nor announced any policy, so far, about these organizations, apparently engaged in terrorist activities.

MANS is strongly protesting against this apathy, irresponsible and insensitive approach of the Government and the Investigating Agencies. Because, even after lapse of about 34 months period after Dr. Dabholkar’s murder, the investigation has not reached to any convincing logical conclusion. We condemn Sanatan Sanstha and Hindu Janajagaran Samitee, fundamentalist, right wing Hindu organisations who are spreading hatred and are reportedly engaged in terrorist activities like Goa blast and murders of progressive thinkers.

So, we are organising protest campaign “Against Violence, Towards Humanity” at national and international level which will commence at Delhi on 20th July 2016 and will continue upto 20th August 2016. This programme will conclude on 20th August 2016 at Pune, with a mass protest, which, all the like minded organisations will join. Let us participate in this protest programme with full strength.

What you can do:

1) Can conduct morning walks/rally/agitations/demonstrations all over Maharashtra and other states and submit the statements to Chief Minister of Maharashtra State, through District Collector, Tehsildar, Police Superintendent.

2) Can display the photographs of absconded suspects of 2009 Bomb Blast and also the suspects in Dr. Dabholkar murder case.

3) Demand an inquiry into the terrorist activities of Sanatan Sanstha and Hindu Janajagaran Samitee and request for taking appropriate action against them.

Thank you,
