Joint Statement
issued on behalf of the Citizens For Democracy (CFD)

And People's Union For Civil Liberties (PUCL)

POLICE ACTION AGAINST ASHIS NANDY
CONDEMNED

We deprecate strongly the police action being taken
against Ashis Nandy. The accusation that
Nandy has made derogatory casteist
remarks against dalits and OBCs are utterly baseless. Ashis Nandy has been
longstanding friend and guide of the OBC and dalit cause and his record for
such deprived sections of society
extending over three decades would show how false and motivated such
allegations are.

We condemn the action of the Rajasthan
Government for having initiated
proceedings against him. We demand that proceedings be immediately
withdrawn. The government and
the people who have leveled allegations
against him should take them back and express unqualified apology to him.

We also call upon the National Commission For SCs to discontinue
his inquiry which is totally uncalled for.
