Protest Gathering organised infront of Uttarakhand Bhavan demanding the Arrest of organisers of ‘Dharma Sansad’ in Haridwar

Haridwar Dharam Sansad was attended by numerous Hindu religious leaders and monks. Yati Narasinghanand has already informed that the kind of hate assembly will be organised in many other states also. No arrests yet means the police and the governments are in total support of the anti-Muslim hate assemblies. This is sheer lawlessness.

Leaders and activists of Fraternity Movement including National President Shamseer Ibrahim, National Secretary Waseem RS, Executive Member Rahil Mobood and others gathered today in front of Utharakhand Sadan to register our protest and to demand immediate arrest of Hindu monks and Hindutva leaders behind Haridwar anti-Muslim hate assembly.

Fraternity Movement demands action against the open call of genocide given by Hindu monks and Hindutva leaders in Haridwar.

At a three day conference named “Dharma Sansad” (Religious Parliament) held at Haridwar between Dec 17 to 19, videos emerged of popular Hindu religious leaders, BJP leaders, right-wing activists, Hindutva militants and several organizations taking an oath to “fight, die for and if need be, kill, to make this country a Hindu Rashtra”, amid other calls for genocide against Muslims in India. Alluding to a Nazi-esque ‘final solution’ against minorities, Hindu extremist leader Swami Prabodhanand Giri, among other BJP aides, is seen making extremely dangerous and provocative statements like, “…you prepare to die now, or get ready to kill, there’s no other way. This is why, like in Myanmar, the police here, the politicians here, the army and every Hindu must pick up weapons and we will have to conduct this cleanliness drive (safai abhiyan). There is no solution apart from this.” This event is an alarming sign of a brewing genocide of Muslims in India facilitated and encouraged by the state. The Uttarakhand police have not made any arrests or taken any stringent action against leaders and monks openly calling for religious violence. This ignorance and irresponsibility on the part of the police show the impunity granted to these proprietors of hate. This should be considered a direct attack on religious minorities, and a threat to their lives and dignity.Fraternity Movement demands immediate arrests and swift judicial punishments against the organizers and attendees of the event. The movement stands rigidly and firmly against the agenda of genocide against religious minorities, perpetrated by some Hindu monks and Hindutva leaders.

Fraternity Movement condemns the killing of civilians in Nagaland and stand in complete solidarity with the families of the deceased

At least 13 civilians were shot dead by the armed forces in Nagaland. The civilians were returning from work when the armed forces ambushed their vehicle and killed six people on the spot, seven died later. Eleven others are battling injuries while two civilians are missing.

These incidents of absolute violence against people happen because of the impunity enjoyed by the Army through laws like the AFSPA which grants the Army special powers in certain regions. In Kashmir and the North-Eastern states laws like this enable the forces to commit crimes against civilians and get away with it easily.

Fraternity Movement condemns the killing of civilians in Nagaland and stand in complete solidarity with the families of the deceased. We demand immediate action to be taken against those involved in the killing. We also demand the revocation of Acts like AFSPA which gives the Army immense power over civilians. 

Resist state-sponsored police Brutality in Assam

Assam has a history of alienating and dehumanising Muslims in the state particularly the bangla speaking Muslims. With the enactment of NRC in the state, ethnonationalism has taken form of ethnofascism.

In the past few days, thousands of Muslims have been displaced in the Dholpur area in Darrang. State government and it’s Media allies are calling the peasant residents of the area illegal immigrants and encroachers to justify the illegal land grab.

What has unravelled is serious of brutal police action. Atleast 3 have been killed by Assam police but there are speculations of a higher death toll. Moinul Hoque, Saddam Hussain, and Sheikh Farid, have been martyred but their names will remain and haunt the supremacist enthonationals.

Bengali Muslims in Assam have been dehumanised to the extent that we see Bijay Shankar Baniya, a camraman present at the site, kicking and jumping on the dead body of Moinul Hoque exhibiting anti-Muslim hate and ethnic pride.

CM Himanta Biswa Sarma and his brother SP of Darrang, Sushanta Biswa Sharma together unleashed horrors. Nothing can justify the police action and killings. This is going to set an extremely blooy precedent and has to be challenged and resisting. Fraternity Movement demands an end to police brutality and state-sponsored terrorism. We also demand an impartial probe and that SP Sushanta Biswa Sharma be suspended.

Fraternity Movement believes that no Human is illegal and stands in solidarity with the Muslims in Assam.

DEATH THREATS CAN’T STOP US

There have been repeated attempts from the Hindutva forces to intimidate Fraternity Movement and it’s leaders.

Sharjeel Usmani, national secretariat member and Haider SK, office secretary have been repeatedly receiving death threats and abusive phonecalls from unknown international numbers. We have filed a complaint with Delhi Police regarding the same on 13 August.

We stand, shoulder to shoulder, with our leaders. Let this be heard and known, these tactics of terrorizing and intimidating only strengthens our resolve to stand up for justice and dignified existence.

Fraternity Movement vehemently opposes these actions meant to intimidate, threaten, and mobilize hate crimes against Muslims.

New Delhi: Large anti-muslim rallies were held in Delhi at Dwarka and Jantar Mantar with thousands of participants from the right wing Hindutva groups calling for a genocide of Muslims. These kinds of hateful gatherings and calls for genocide has to not just be condemned but fought with on grounds. Anti-muslim terror crimes have become a common occurrence and there is no contestation from the opposition.

Two separate incidents within a week in India’s capital have reaffirmed the secondary citizenship of Muslims in the country, with the situation worsening every day. The first incident surface due to the allocation of funds for the Huj House in Dwarka. The All Dwarka Residents Federation, in a letter signed on 3rd August 2021 by its secretary Advocate BP Vaishnav, said that the construction of the Huj House will cause disturbance in the “brotherhood, harmony, and peace in the society apart from the law and order” and cited “every possibility of riots, migration of Hindu and repetition of situation like Shaheen Bagh, Jaffrabad, and Kashmir”. Notwithstanding the fallacies in the examples where targets and victims were and have been Muslims themselves, various Hindutva groups organized a “Mahapanchayat” on Friday where Hindu men could be seen asking to raise Shastra (arms) and Shaastra (Holy Texts) to oppose the move lest “terrorists” take over the country.

The second incident occurred on Sunday, 8th August 2021, barely minutes away from the Parliament, where a gathering of about 5000 people openly called for the genocide of Muslims. Called by Supreme Court lawyer and former spokesperson of the Delhi unit of Bharatiya Janata Party Ashwini Upadhyay, “Jab mulle kaate jayenge, Ram-Ram chillayenge [Muslims will chant Ram-Ram when they will be slaughtered],” were among the various Islamophobic slogans shouted during the event.

Despite visual evidence of hatred and blatant flouting of covid guidelines, there has been no direct action from the police or executive against the organisers of these rallies. Registering an FIR against “unknown people” when the real perpetrators are known is nothing less than rendering institutional support to genocide enablers.

From anti-Muslim rallies to lynchings to pogroms, the Hindu supremacists enjoy impunity and state support, and complicit and implicit approval from the collective society. These vitriolic incidents are not, and should not be deemed to be, the doings of a fringe group or a subsection of Hindutva. These are the reflections of the society we are living in, where Muslims are at risk of losing their liberty, their rights, and their lives. The Islamophobia is propagated by those who either actively call for genocide, or passively lend support in the form of silence.

Fraternity Movement vehemently opposes these actions meant to intimidate, threaten, and mobilize hate crimes against Muslims, and calls for every authority, including the police, the judiciary, the civil society groups to raise their voice against blatant Islamophobia and calls for violence. We demand immediate legal action against Ashwini Upadhyay, Narsinghanand Saraswati, Gajendra Chauhan and Hindu terror mob for calling for Muslim Genocide in National Capital.

Two years of violence against students in the Aligarh Muslim University and Jamia Millia Islamia.

Fraternity Movement observes two years of violence against students in the Aligarh Muslim University and Jamia Millia Islamia. The police administration of Uttar Pradesh and Delhi had unleashed an unprecedented amount of force against innocent students merely for exercising their right to protest against the draconian Citizenship Amendment Act and the National Register of Citizens. Fraternity Movement salutes the courage of every student who stood up against the hateful might of the state machinery and paved the way for future citizen-led movements against atrocities committed by the ruling government.

NFS; a tool of exclusion of students from marginalized communities, SCRAP IT

NFS (Not Found Suitable) has been used by the Savarna academicians of higher educational institutions to keep away eligible candidates belonging to marginalized communities in faculty appointments. Denying faculty positions by using the tool of NFS is a blatant violation of constitutionally guaranteed rights. Even after years of efforts to overcome, discrimination in the name of religion and caste remains a hard reality that rules the academic system in the country. There are numerous examples of naked violation of reservation principles by bypassing the reserved seats to the general category noting NFS in the respective category. Since the practice of NFS is used for turning over the interests of reservation and rights guaranteed by the constitution, the Fraternity movement demands scrapping the NFS system and reforming the appointment procedure at the earliest. Social justice in higher education must be ensured.

Dalit girl gang-raped in Gohri Village.

Fraternity Movement Allahabad President Sarah Ahmad Siddiqui, along with other social activists visited the relatives of Dalit family murdered last day in Gohri village of Allahabad.

The Brahmanical state’s oppression and apathy are visible in the fact that the Dalit family had previously filed complaints against the upper-Class family that the victims kin hold responsible for the gruesome murders. Four members of the Dalit family were murdered, with a minor girl allegedly being gang-raped prior to her death. The family had previously reported about their assault and the threat to their lives and filed cases under the SC/ST Act against the accused in 2019 and 2021. Yet, the State allowed their murders to take place, with the victim’s kin claiming that police had been apathetic in their approach to their cases, and tried to intimidate them into a compromise on the upper-caste family’s behest. The Brahmanical state with its systemically oppressive police force must be held accountable. She demanded punishment against the accused, and swift justice for the victims.

Fraternity Movement Condemns Assaults on Christian institutions across the country.

Fraternity Movement strongly condemns the recent spate of attacks on churches across India, and the Christian community at large. The recent weeks have seen an increase in the hate crimes against Christians and Christian places of worship. The attacks on churches in Dwarka in New Delhi, Roorkee in Uttarakhand, and Belur in Karnataka are just the tip of the iceberg in terms of the Central Government’s anti-minority politics and apathy towards the protection of the rights, sentiments, and lives of minorities.

Fraternity Movement calls for strict measures to curb the violence against minority institutions, severe punishments for the culprits as well as systemic changes for the protection of the rights and dignity of minorities.

Naming DU colleges after Hindutwa icons Sushma Swaraj and Savarkar is highly contemptible.

Saffronization of academic spaces must be opposed at any cost. Using inconsequential figures to name educational institutions as part of RSS agenda is harmful to the very idea of education.
This should be considered as another face of  the RSS propaganda of  portraying Savarkar from a bootlicker to a nationalist hero which is of atmost disgust.

Institutions must be named after perceptors who certainly stand a chance in holding up educational values. Fraternity Movement Delhi University demand the DU Vice Chancellor to revoke this decision of promoting traitors.
