Hunger Fast Against Lynchings of Indian Muslims - Not in My Name

Appeal from Prem Singh, Socialist Party of India

I will hold a 7-day fast at Jantar Mantar from tomorrow June 25, 2017 to protest against the lynchingof our own citizens in their own country by mobs. On the first day, Bandana Pandey  (General Secretary,Socialist Yuvraj  Sabha) will join me in the fast which will begin at 11 AM. Other friends who also feel strongly about this issue are welcome to join in.

I request village panchayats, municipalities, laborers, farmers, students, social-religious organizations and individual citizens to contemplate upon this serious issue and make efforts that incidents of mob- lynching are stopped immediately.

UPDATE on NOT IN MY NAME

A Facebook post by a filmmaker against the killing of a 16-year-old has led to an online campaign, with protest marches being organised in five cities across the country. Thousands have pledged to hit the streets this week in support of the campaign, entitled "Not In My Name" on June 28.

Protests will be held in Delhi, Kolkata, Hyderabad, Thiruvananthapuram and Bengaluru simultaneously on Wednesday, said filmmaker Saba Dewan. The family of 16-year-old Junaid, killed by a mob in a Mathura-bound train, will also be invited to join the demonstration, Ms Dewan said. A group of men abused Junaid and his brothers in the train and attacked them after an altercation, allegedly over seats.

She added that the protests reflected the "anger and grief" of the people."I never realised the response would be so overwhelming. Despite the debilitating violence, these protests will make us feel we are alive and spark hope," Ms Dewan told the media. The campaign sought to "reclaim the Constitution" and "resist the onslaught" on the right to life and equality, the Gurugram-based documentary filmmaker said.The protest in Delhi will be held at the Jantar Mantar at around 6 pm. 

Date: Wednesday, 28 June, 2017
Time: 6:00 PM
Venue: Jantar Mantar, New Delhi

A citizens silent protest against the targetted lynchings of Muslims going on countrywide. The latest being of 16 year old Junaid on 23 June 2017 in Delhi (NCR) on a suburban train. As citizens let's get together and assert that the killings and the hatred being unleashed - Is Not In Our Name. If not now then when? Right to Life and Equality is a fundamental right enshrined in the Constitution of India. It is time we the citizens of India reclaim and protect our Constitution.

This is a citizens protest open to all. Everyone is welcome but without party or organisational banners.
