Letter To President Of India

Smt. Pratibha Patil
President of India
Rashtrapati Bhavan,
New Delhi,
India.

Honorable Smt. Pratibha Patil:

This is to express our vehement condemnation of the merciless use of force on more than a hundred thousand Indian citizens including women and children who were unarmed, sleeping, fasting and exercising only their constitutional democratic rights to draw attention of Government of India by peaceful means to skyrocketing plundering and widespread corruption, during the “Satyagraha” against corruption on Ram Lila grounds in New Delhi on June 4th 2011.

The brutality of the police revisited the atrocities committed by British colonial rulers and emergency rule of Mrs. Indira Gandhi during 1975, which many of us have personally experienced and heard from our parents. Innocent, peaceful Satyagrahis assembled were tear-gassed, beaten up in lathi-charge and trampled by thousands of violent policemen under order from the UPA government.

The state-sponsored violence in a closed compound could have even led to an uncontrollable  stampede resulting in the loss of an enormous numbers of innocent lives. This cannot be Democratic India; this cannot be Mahatma Gandhi’s India; this is not India governed by rule of law and a democratic constitution, ensuring the fundamental rights of all citizens for assembly and peaceful protest and demonstration.

These events have left the people of Indian origin around the globe, particularly here in the USA, shocked and horror-stricken. We are thoroughly embarrassed for our native land, asking in disbelief what indeed is the difference between Indian democracy under UPA leadership and the Chinese dictatorial system, where no peaceful demonstration is allowed and any legitimate criticism against the ruling Communist Party is crushed with brutal violence as in Tiananmen Square.

The irresponsible, callous, fascist and totalitarian attitude of the UPA government is evident from the fact that neither the UPA Chairperson Mrs. Sonia Gandhi nor Prime Minister Mr. Manmohan Singh considers it necessary to provide an explanation and extend an apology to the nation. The prime minister even made a ridiculous statement that there was no other way except use of violence, near the samadhi of Mahatma Gandhi himself – a global beacon of non-violence.

This display of naked power clearly appears to be yet another attempt to crush the ever-increasing strength of anti-corruption movements by the masses all over India, unfortunately implying UPA government intense desire to preserve the culture of corruption among their own political ranks and within the thoroughly corrupt bureaucracy they control. These were the actions of people who do not believe in either human rights for their citizens, freedom of speech guaranteed by the Indian Constitution or Indian values.

This is a serious threat to the fundamental rights of our brothers and sisters in India. The entire Diaspora around the globe as NRI, PIO and responsible Overseas Citizens of India (OCI) unequivocally condemn this act by the Government of India. We are convinced now more than ever as to why the UPA government is trying to brutally crush any and all peaceful anti-corruption movements. Irrespective of our political affiliation, we are totally united in expressing our disgust and anger against unconstitutional violation of democracy and human rights.

Sreemati Patil, as the President of India you have the constitutional duty to uphold democratic norms guaranteeing the freedom and inalienable right of all Indian citizens for peaceful assembly and protest, and also to dismiss a corrupt government which has clearly exhibited no desire to curb rampant corruption and hence lost all moral authority to govern the country. We fervently hope that you will restore freedom, human rights and democratic rights of the citizens by dismissing the corrupt UPA government.  People of India deserve a chance to democratically elect new leaders who will root out corruption.

Thank you for your consideration and thoughtfulness.

Sincerely,

  1. true… not sure who said this, but it still rings true: Power attracts the corruptible. Absolute power attracts the absolutely corruptible.

  2. The Midnight Drama

    Bravo , Somnath Bharati

    Bravo for that brush with the Delhi Police at midnight , yesterday

    You managed to conclusively establish , what people of Delhi suspected all along , viz :,

    > If Delhi Police cannot care a hoot , even for a Minister , the poor stand no
    chance to get them to act on their complaints

    > Delhi Police are hand-in-glove with the drug mafia / pimps / rapists /
    swindlers / murderers / smugglers / all anti-social elements

    > Delhi Police are the most corrupt department

    DEAR SOMNATH ,

    Next time you conduct such a ” surprise raid ” ,

    > do it in daytime

    > under the glare of 100 TV cameras

    > in the presence of the people of Delhi

    > telecast LIVE on news channels

    TV editors will be too glad to oblige !

    That is the only way to expose Police-Mafia nexus !

    Forget the proper procedures – which only succeed in alerting the Mafia !

    But don’t expect things to change much till AAP manages to get FULL STATEHOOD status for Delhi , and make the Police report to the Delhi government , instead of the Central Home Minister

    Of course , the Centre will do everything to prevent this !

    In the meantime , a word of caution to the Delhi Police :

    Remember ,

    > Somnath is only a symbol of people’s anger / frustration

    > If you don’t mend your ways fast , this anger will boil over

    > At that time , your lathis / tear gas / water cannons will not be able to
    control the people

    > People have witnessed what happened in Arab countries recently

    > They are desperate to try anything that they think , will get them justice

    > Do not stretch your luck

    > Next time you fail to act on their complaints – or a complaint of any
    Minister of Delhi government , you will run out of luck !

    > With 2014 elections approaching fast , Congress Home Minister will not
    come to your aid – for fear of an anti – Congress wave over ” Police
    Brutality ” ! Remember , Ram Lila Maidan in 2011 ?
