1. In Karnataka, especially in Dakshin Kannada cases of kidnapping and murder of young women have been reporting often since last 10 years pushing women to live under fear. CBI should probe all these cases and should take appropriate measure to solve mysteries behind it. State Government should take measures to ensure the safety of women.
2. Victims of Muzaffarnagar violence are living under a pathetic condition in relief camps after losing their beloved ones, houses, property and belongings. There are no basic facilities in the camps. Uttar Pradesha State government is producing its irresponsible act by not taking positive measures to the rehabilitation of the riot victims. Around 60 children have lost their lives in the camps due to cold weather. Central government should interfere and should order the state government to provide all facilities and medical service in the relief camps.
3. S.Mani, Former officer for department of home, in an affidavit submitted before the court, has alleged government’s hand behind parliament attack 2001 and Mumbai attack 2008. This has caused loss of faith among the people about the government and police department. NWF demands that government should initiate thorough probe in to such sensitive issue and should discover the real culprits before the country.
4. NWF welcomes Supreme Court’s order banning homo sexuality. This is an unnatural act, even lead mental disabilities. We demand that central government should bring a strong law to curb this social evil.
5. Lots of civilians have lost their lives to black law AFSPA which is in act in Manipur. We urge central government to have talk with Irom Sharmila, an activist observing sathyagraha (Fast unto death) from last 12 years demanding the banning of such a draconian law. NWF also demand that government should withdraw this law.
