Civil Society Activists Condemn the Attack on Prashant Bhushan

Tuesday 25 October 2011

Several social and political organisations have strongly condemned the attack on eminent activist advocate Mr Prashant Bhushan in his chamber at the Supreme Court complex. We are concerned about the growing intolerance in the political arena of the country in the recent past. We are of the view that violence has no space in a democracy and different points of view must always be put across peacefully and can always be discussed.

We extended our solidarity with Mr Prashant Bhushan and his campaigns for justice.
