Target: Rajnath Singh, Union Minister of Home Affairs
Goal: Condemn Delhi police force for allegedly not intervening in the reportedly vicious attack against journalists.
Police reportedly stood by while a group of lawyers allegedly attacked journalists, students, and teachers. Demand that the allegedly unlawful police force be held accountable.
The alleged attack took place in a Delhi courtroom, where journalists, students, and teachers assembled to hear a case registered against Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNUSU) president Kanhaiya Kumar. Just before the hearing began, Members of Legislative Assembly (MLA) allegedly attacked the onlookers. Reportedly, police stood by and watched the assault without intervening.
This is not the first time journalists have been attacked while on the job. They persistently defend their freedom of speech, often with their lives. Sign below to demand that these allegedly unlawful officers are removed immediately from the Delhi police force.
Dear Mr. Singh,
A group of journalists, teachers, and students were reportedly attacked in a courtroom. While this, in itself, is malicious and uncalled for, the alleged inaction of the police is outrageous. We demand that the alleged unresponsive officers be removed from their posts immediately.
Journalists, students, and teachers utilized their right to attend the hearing for JNUSU president Kanhaiya Kumar. In doing so, they were allegedly beaten by members of the MLA. Reportedly, police officers stood silently and did not intervene in the attack.
Violent acts against journalists should not be tolerated. Freedom of speech is an essential part of the justice system, and these journalists and protesters have rights. We demand that all police proven to be involved in this alleged incident be removed immediately from the Delhi police force.
