Joshi opposes communal violence bill
Sentinel; November 12,2011

GUWAHATI, Nov 10: In a bid to generate awareness regarding prevention of Communal and Targeted violence Bill 2011, the Bharat Vikas Parishad (Assam chapter) organized a discussion in the city on Thursday.

Prevention of Communal and Targeted Violence Bill 2011 has been drafted by the National Advisory Council under the leadership of Sonia Gandhi. It no doubt looks like a bill to stop communal atrocities but its main objective is to achieve political goals and ignite communal riots.

Addressing the meeting, chief guest of the programme, Murli Manohar Joshi, Member of Parliament and chairman of Public Accounts Committee, said, “Format of this bill is prepared by John Dayal and it was cleared by Sonia Gandhi. But if this bill gets passed in its present state and becomes a law, then I am pretty much sure that its adverse effects will widen the gap between existing communities in our nation.”

“This bill will also affect communal harmony and will create serious differences between majority and minority communities,” Joshi added.

Most controversial and debatable aspect of this bill is its definition of “group”, which stands for only linguistic and religious majorities. And in the case of communal violence, this bill will empower the Central Government to impose President’s rule in the affected State.

“In a secured democracy there are no religious minorities and majorities. Everyone lives in the same country but it is the people who make the division. There is also no definition of generic group,” Joshi added.

“I am strongly against this bill because this bill is meant to divide the country. I request everybody to protest if the bill is passed in the Parliament. Moreover, this bill is anti-constitutional and anti –Hindu,” Joshi added.

Other persons who were present in the programme are Ameoya Hazarika, Secretary of Bharat Vikas Parishad, Colonel Manoranjan Goswami, Indira Borthakur of Bharat Vikas Parishad and Deepak Borthakur, National Vice Chairman of Bharat Vikas Parishad. Before the programme started, a 2-minute silence was observed in the memory of late Dr Bhupen Hazarika.
