Please do join the candle light vigil for the children of Nithari this Sunday, 14 January, 07, 5:00 p.m. in our continous struggle for equal justice for all.
LET US MEET AT JANTAR MANTAR ON 14 JAN. 2006 AT 5 PM TO
LIGHT CANDLES FOR THE VICTIMS OF NITHARI.
The year 2006 ended with the shocking revelations of “NITHARI’S GRUESOME KILLINGS” – appropriately being labeled as ‘India’s shame’ - the blot that may never be easy to erase from our history.
The Nithari murders have shocked the world and generated unparalleled anger among the citizenry. What is making us ashamed and angry is that for two years the media kept on bringing out stories of missing children of the deprived and marginalized people and we failed to raise our voice - and if we did it was not ‘loud enough’ to save the lives of many innocent poor children. In any case, we should have never left it to our netas, babus and police, who slept over it.
We must no longer watch from the sidelines silently. Along with the media the citizens of this country have a moral responsibility to launch a sustained campaign for accountability.
Let us all meet at Jantar Mantar on Sunday, Jan 14 at 5 p.m. to launch a sustained ‘campaign for accountability of the authorities’ and express our solidarity with the bereaved families of Nithari. We want to seek information and explanation for the callousness of the authorities who are there to protect the citizens, especially innocent children and who failed in their duty for two long years.
The time has come to fight for upholding our constitutional rights in letter and spirit.
“WE, THE PEOPLE OF INDIA, having solemnly resolved to constitute India into a SOVEREIGN SOCIALIST SECULAR DEMOCRATIC REPUBLIC
and to secure to all its citizens:
JUSTICE, social, economic and political;
LIBERTY of thought, expression, belief, faith and worship;
EQUALITY of status and of opportunity; and to promote among them all
FRATERNITY assuring the dignity of the individual and the unity and integrity of the Nation”
