Popular Front expresses condolences on the demise of Father Stan Swami

Press Release /05 July 2021

New Delhi: Popular Front of India Chairman O M A Salam expressed his condolences on the demise of Father Stan Swami.

It is with deep sorrow and resentment that we received the news of the sad demise of Father Stan Swami. The cruelty committed on him has no justification in a civilized society. The draconian UAPA and the vicious form of state vendetta that does not even spare an octogenarian priest with serious chronic diseases expose the rot in our criminal justice system. Father will be remembered as a man who lived by his ideals to the last moment. He found the fulfilment of his faith in serving the marginalized sections of society and fighting for their rights.

I express my heartfelt condolences to the bereaved family and friends.
