People’s March


 We, as citizens, affirm the constitutional values of the Indian Republic.
This most diverse country, belongs equally to all persons who make it its
own, regardless of their religious faith (or for that matter, their denial
of faith), their gender, caste, class, language, physical abilities and
sexual orientation. This is the promise we had made to ourselves during the
independence movement. This is the meaning of Part IV–A of the
Constitution of India that prescribes the fundamental duties of all Indian
citizens: to respect ‘the composite culture of India, to ’develop the
scientific temper’, ’spirit of reform’ and ‘critical enquiry’ and to
‘cherish the ideas that inspired the struggle for Indian Independence.

As citizens, we are deeply concerned with the assault on the nation. All
critical voices are being dubbed as anti-national. Instead of this belief
in the Republic,  exclusions and intolerance is being propagated. This
would lead to the unmaking of the Indian Republic. This is what we are
witnessing: riots, polarisation; in the name of development, the theft of
natural resources; attack on livelihoods and workers rights;  attack on
minorities and Dalits. And worst of all, curbing of freedom, where people
are told what to write, speak, love and eat.

 It is this climate of intolerance that led to the lynching in Dadri of
Mohammad Akhlaq and the assassination of the rationalists, Prof. Kalburgi,
Dr. Narendra Dabholkar and Shri Govind Pansare. It is this same climate of
intolerance that had led to Nathuram Godse’s assassination of Mahatma

 We, as Citizens, must stand together in Defense of the Republic.
