Protest meeting against victimization of Teesta Setalvad
Friday 10th January 2014, 4.30pm
Venue: Outside Dadar Station East
Let us join hands to condemn the FIR filed against Teesta Setalvad in an Ahmedabad police station which is a most vindictive act by the Modi Government designed as a form of punishment for her fight for justice on behalf of Zakia Jaffri and other victim families of the Gujarat violence in 2002.
The FIR is a measure of the contempt for minimum democratic norms by the Gujarat Government. The timing of FIR against Teesta is also suspect as Zakia Jaffri is in the process of filing an appeal against the ruling of the lower court in favour of the SIT’s clean chit to Modi.
Through threats, warnings, false FIRs and concocted stories, the Modi Government has time and again sought to suppress all efforts by Teesta Setalvad and others to bring out the truth behind the role of the Chief Minister in the violence of 2002.
We appeal to all secular forces to pledge solidarity with Teesta Setalvad and resist the heinous attempt to victimize her.
We request you to participate in the Protest Gathering this Friday and to mobilise as many of your friends & colleagues.
