Popular Front of India general secretary M. Mohammed Ali Jinnah in a statement issued today condemned the illegal arrest of Bharat Mukti Morcha and BAMCEF leader Mr. Waman Meshram in Ahamedabad. The denial of permission to hold a rally as part of Parivartan Yatra held by Bahujan Kranti Morcha and subsequent arrest of its leader by state police is a direct violation of freedom of expression and freedom of association enshrined in the constitution. This incident is yet another illustration of the Hindutva hate politics carried by BJP against the Bahujan samaj. Mohammed Ali Jinnah expressed solidarity with the cause undertaken by Waman Meshram through the Parivartan Yatra. He warned BJP governments in Gujarat and elsewhere that the uprising of oppressed sections could not be stopped by any repressive measures.
