Welfare Party Of India Condemns Attack On Aam Admi Party Office

New Delhi: January, 9.

“Welfare Party of India strongly condemns the attack on the Aam Admi Party head office at Kaushambi in Ghaziabad on Wednesday and the misbehavior with women who were present there by a right-wing group with links to the Sangh Parivar. The attack is said to be the reaction to a statement made by Prashant Bhushan, well-known human right activist and senior lawyer of the Supreme Court regarding his suggestion for a referendum on the deployment of army in Jammu and Kashmir. It is an irony that the same group had physically attacked Bhushan in his Supreme Court Chamber in 2011 for his remarks on Kashmir. Had our administration and political leadership taken a judicious action and prompt stand against the Hindu Raksha Dal and its leader Pinky Chaudhary, this kind of vandalism would not have repeated.

Mr. Bhushan didn’t make any adverse reference regarding the status of the state of Jammu and Kashmir in his remarks. He suggested for a referendum from the people of the state for the prolonged deployment of the army under the controversial AFSPA. It is a fact admitted by many that presence of the army with abundant and unquestionable powers, human rights violations by army and police personnel and the draconian AFSPA type acts, wherever in operation, are the main reasons for the alienation of the people. Mr. Bhushan shared and underscored this point. 

Intolerance of divergent and different views and vandalism on that basis are nothing but fascism and cannot go hand in hand with democratic and human values. It is sad that the mainstream political parties were not as strong and sharp in their condemnation of the attack on the Aam Admi Party office like their condemnation to the remarks of Parashant Bhushan regarding army deployment and referendum. Reluctance of right-wing groups to accommodate plural views and imposition of their opinions by violence should be condemned by all. The government must deal it seriously, book all the culprits and ensure such acts will not occur again. This fascist tendency has to be resisted democratically and there must not be any soft approach by anyone.” End

General Secretary
