kashmir-global-network : Message: [kashnet] Fwd: Resolution: PIPFPD West Bengal Chapter

The resolution placed and adopted in the Meeting of Pakistan India Peoples’
/>Forum for Peace and Democracy, West Bengal Chapter, held on 21st January,
/>2000 at Muslim Institute, Calcutta .
/>” It has been brought to the notice of Pakistan India Peoples’ Forum for
/>Peace and Democracy, West Bengal Chapter that in Jammu & Kashmir a good
/>number of people were arrested and are still in the prisons without trial
/>for merely exercising their fundamental right to freedom of expression. The
/>extent of their alleged offence was that they advocated non-participation
/>in the last Loksabha election in Jammu & Kashmir.
/>Freedom of expression guaranteed in Indian Constitution, as was made clear
/>by the Chief Election Commissioner of our country, includes right to
/>advocacy of participation and non-participation in the elections. There are
/>instances in this country in certain areas and constituencies where the
/>voters concertedly boycotted the election enmasse without attracting any
/>penal measure.
/>This august meeting of democratic and peace loving people expresses concern
/>for trampling Human Right under foot in Jammu & Kashmir and demands on the
/>power that be, immediate release of those incarcerated persons.”
