Gulbarga Huge Rally By Popular Front and other Muslim organisations in Gulbarga against the police brutality . Heavy Police deployed for discouraging the members of different organisations , barricades were put up to stop people from attending the rally, but the people kept coming in and with the number of people swelling ,police then stopped the people at Hafth Gumbad itself.
When that didn’t work Gulbarga DC Ujwal Kumar Ghosh had to come to the protest ground to pacify the protesters, this is first time the District administrative head had to come down to meet the protesters . Seeing this the protesters accepted his assurance of action within 5 days.
Popular Front State Treasurer Farooqurrahman speaking at the occasion said “We are Popular front and we are not threatened by such tactics, In India, Laws are same for all, whether it is a common citizen or legislators or bureaucrats or even President of India. When police personal take the law in their hands and act against the constitution even they need to be dealt with same yard stick. We are against those power drunk officers who think they are above the law and we are not rallying against the whole department.”
He also added that “If the Gulbarga administration does not act immediately and does not take strict action against the above police personnel, then more aggressive protests will be followed across the state. We have given police 15 days time if not we will take this protest a mark higher and show the police that in democracy People come first”.
Shahid Naseer of SDPI who himself was subjected to the brutality by the police along with Md Mohsin, thanked the people of Gulbarga on standing in unison with them. He said that seeing the people come out and defy police bravely means that the errant police officers have failed in their attempt to create a fear psychosis in the Muslim youth”

This is not just Mohsins issue but issue of whole Gulbarga and we have to rally around every such victim only them it will stop”
