Intolerant Behaviour

People’s Union for Democratic Rights, Delhi (PUDR) condemns the threats being issued by the Communist Party of India (Maoist) [CPI(Maoist)] to members of the Gram Swaraj Abhiyan and to others investigating and protesting against the killing of Niyamat Ansari at Manika block in Jharkhand. Niyamat Ansari, the convenor of Manika block unit of Gram Swaraj Abhiyan and the Mahatma Gandhi National Rural Employment Guarantee Act Support Centre was killed on 2 March this year.

PUDR expresses concern that posters and printed leaflets had appeared in Manika claiming to have been brought out by the CPI(Maoist) threatening to punish Gokul Vasant, Nand Lal, Jean Dreze and Aruna Roy for claiming Niyamat Ansari’s innocence. It also contained a renewed threat to the lives of Bhukan Singh and members of the Gram Swaraj Abhiyan.
