In defense of civil rights and constitutional values: Popular Front convenes Community Leaders Convention

Popular Front of India is organizing a “Community Leaders Convention” in defence of civil rights and constitutional values in New Delhi (N.D.Tiwari Bhawan) on Saturday 7th September 2019 at 10 am onwards. This convention will be attended by delegates from Delhi and adjacent states representing organizations and institutions working at grassroots.
Popular Front Chairman E. Abubacker will preside over the function. Those who will address the convention include members of parliament, political party leaders, community leaders and civil rights activists.
Within just three months, the new government at centre has shown that it is impatiently determined to implement the core Hindutva agenda at any cost. They were not bothered about the democracy, constitution and parliamentary procedures while making draconian changes in UAPA, NIA, RTI etc. The controversial Triple Talaq law is also an act of discrimination against Muslims. Now the government is fully armed with powers to suppress all voices of dissent by declaring not only organisations, but individuals also as terrorists. The religious minorities are further threatened with announcements of implementing nationwide NRC, anti-conversion law and uniform civil code. The religious minorities and weaker sections, particularly Muslims are being kept under fear and insecurity.
Popular Front Zonal President A.S. Ismail stated that the objective of this convention is to unite people in endeavours for protecting our fundamental rights and maintain a peaceful atmosphere free from fear and hatred. He also said that this convention of invited delegates will be followed by a grand public gathering in Delhi on 29th Sep 2019 namely “People’s Rights Conference”.
