[Sign Petition] Citizens in Solidarity with Teesta Setalvad and Javed Anand

MUST-READ: The Case against Teesta Setalvad or the Gujarat Model of Vindictive Action

 

[emailpetition id=”10″] [signaturelist id=”10″]

We are shocked to learn of the rejection of the Anticipatory bail applications of Teesta Setalvad and Javed Anand by the Gujarat High Court. Media stories suggest that the bail applications have been turned down because Setalavad and Anand were “not cooperating with the investigations” and that prima facie “funds were used for private purpose”. It is a matter of record that they have submitted their original bank statements, balance sheets and audited accounts that completely disprove the allegations. Does this amount to non-cooperation or prima facie evidence of wrong-doing?

We stand with Teesta Setalvad and Javed Anand, and their quest for justice for the victims of 2002 violence, which has turned them into a target of Gujarat government’s ire. We condemn this witchhunt and the false and malicious propaganda being circulated against them.

    Gujrat govt should stop, doing such non-sence and political vendetta against such activist , who are doing good job toward civil society, and focus on development of common men, who elected them , or else be ready for another Tsunami as seen in recent Delhi election.

  4. people who indulge in fraud seldom oppose the establishment.they want to be on the right side of the establishment.without going into the details of the case and the whole background it is not right to do mudslinging
