Shabnam Hashmi attacked in Rae Bareli by BJP supporters

New Delhi. Well-known social activist Shabnam Hashmi was attacked today by BJP suporters in Raibarelly. Social Activist Shabnam Hashmi was on Monday attacked in Rae Bareli allegedly by BJP workers while she and her associates were distributing leaflets against the development claims of Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi. These leaflets were brought out by JAVAB- Janvadi Vichar Andolan Bharat. She was attacked at about 12.30 barely 100 metres from the Gadaganj Police Station inside the Rai-Barely constituency.
“Shabnam Hashmi and her associate were attacked by a gang of about 20 hoodlums who snatched all the Javab Leaflets while pushing and abusing Shabnam Hashmi in the most foul and sexist terms” told SAHMAT’s Ashok.
At the police station Shabnam had to argue with the SHO, telling him that no one can be stopped from exercising their right to free expression and that he had to file an FIR against the attack on her and the threats of rape and sexist abuses. The SHO did not register an FIR and did not give her a copy of her complaint.
Shabnam told, “We are unhurt physically and campaign continues. 1. The BJP goons were wearing bjp saffron caps and patkas so there is no ambiguity of allegedly- they were bjp. 2. Bjp goons threw out all leaflets and bags etc. out of our vehicle, tore the leaflets after snatching them from my hands and used highly abusive sexist language for SHO to call it ‘ an argument’ as quoted in media is a shame. Argument is between two parties. In this case they surrounded me and Pratap Singh Negi in different places , manhandled, threatened- MR SHO u need to learn the definition of argument otherwise we won’t be able to stop Muzaffarnagar’s in UP.”
Safdar Hashmi Memorial Trust (SAHMAT) condemned in the strongest possible terms the attack on Shabnam Hashmi in Rai Barley. SAHMAT demanded that the hoodlums are immediately apprehended and coercive tactics of the BJP not be allowed by the local administration.
