PRESS RELEASE
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
June 07, 2011
VHP of America condemns the ‘Midnight Murder of Democracy’ in India
and barbaric dismantling of HH Baba Ramdev’s protest

On behalf of the Hindu American community of USA, Vishwa Hindu Parishad of America (VHPA) strongly condemns the fascist, undemocratic, barbaric and brutal police action – in the middle of the night – against the more than 50,000 peaceful protestors, including old women and young children while they were asleep under tents in an open field (Ramlila Grounds), in New Delhi, the capital of India, on June 5th.

World-renowned Yogi and Saint, His Holiness ‘Baba Ramdev’, a revered figure among millions of his countrymen, has devoted all his energies to bring to light the misdeeds of the high and mighty. His call to the nation to join him in indefinite fast to compel a deaf government to bring to book the corrupt looters has found resonance with millions. There were close to 100,000 people during the day at the Ramlila Ground. There were similar protests and fasts organized in all the 624 districts all over India.

These non-violent and peaceful protestors were supporting the indefinite-fast, undertaken – in the Gandhian tradition – by HH Baba Ramdev to protest against social curse of all-pervading and ever-increasing bureaucratic and political corruption and black-money – to the tune of multi billion dollars – stashed away in tax-havens, globally, by corrupt government officials and politicians.

This black-money stashed away in tax-havens can very well be used in sponsoring terrorist attacks globally.

These protestors, in the middle of the night, were beaten-up by batons and tear-gassed by a police force empowered by the Indian Government – afraid of public reaction, and protestors including HH Baba Ramdev were evicted from the place of peaceful protest, before dawn, in the typical fashion of a fascist regime.

Besides, the offensive language used by the political leadership of the ruling party against a peacefully protesting Yogi and Saint lowered the level of political discourse. One wonders, juxtaposed to the ‘Arabian spring’ if India, which boasts itself as the world’s largest democracy, is now run by the Nazis. This was indeed a shameful chapter in the history of democracy anywhere in the world!!

This reminded many of the ‘Jallianwala Bagh’ atrocities by the British Government in 1919, where peaceful protestors in an open field were barricaded and shot to death. Others reminisced another similar ‘midnight murder of democracy’ on the night of June 25, 1975 when Mrs. Indira Gandhi, the then Prime Minster, clamped down unlawful, dictatorial Emergency and arrested hundreds of opposition leaders, including Jai Prakash Narayan who was leading a movement, akin to that of HH Baba Ramdev to rid the country of corruption and corrupt political leaders.

Not only was this an undemocratic attack on the freedom of speech and expression of its innocent citizens but it was also an attack on the symbols of the ancient Hindu civilization and culture.

Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and Sonia Gandhi the Chairperson of ruling alliance owe the nation an apology for this grave blunder which has been severely criticized by all as an undemocratic, barbaric and fascist action, unbecoming of a democratic country.
