Resist silent unrolling of NEP amidst the pandemic

The Central government's move forcing states to implement NEP against the backdrop of Covid pandemic, should be resisted. NCERT had called a meeting with state council directors for drafting a curriculum framework which will replace the former framework by 2023. NCERT unilaterally discarded the concerns flagged by the directors about NEP. The move is a part of centralising and consequently corporatising the education sector. The controversial NEP which sabotages our federal nature of education, was cleared bypassing the parliament in 2020. The unobtrusive implementation exposes saffronisation of secular education, an agenda posited by RSS. Student organisations and parliamentarians should come forward to resist it from being implemented. KH Abdul Hadi Vice President

Stop political vendetta against Harsh Mander and child care homes: Reject defamatory claims of CPCRs

Stop political vendetta against Harsh Mander and child care homes: Reject defamatory claims of CPCRs

National Commission for Protection of Child Rights (NCPCR), Delhi police and Delhi Commission for Protection of Child Rights (DCPCR) take cheap political vendetta against child care homes run by Rainbow Foundation which has alleged association with Harsh Mander. NCPCR had raided childcare homes in 2020 and submitted a report, based on which the police lodged FIR in February 2021 and DCPCR filed affidavits in the Delhi High Court claiming "subverting democracy". Whereas NCPCR report accuses that 'children from the homes were sent to anti-CAA protests' which exposes the ulterior motives of the Commission, meant to defame the foundation and renowned right activist Harsh Mander. He is a staunch critic of CAA-NRC and involved in post Delhi genocide rehabilitation activities. The fabrication is more clear through the DCPCR's affidavit that contradicted a majority of the incriminating claims made by the NCPCR. The BJP government's politically motivated witch-hunt against the critics by using official bodies should be stopped. We extend solidarity to Mander and his associations and appeal to the public to reject such defamatory claims with due contempt. Imran PJ Media & PR Secretary

PM's Announcement on Resetting India's Covid Vaccine Policy is an Imperative

India's covid vaccine policy which enabled free vaccination to only those who were above the age of 45 was a misstep, since resetting it was an imperative. The Prime Minister's announcement that the vaccine would be free for all adults at government hospitals from June 21 was a necessary step that should have been taken long ago. Though public health is a responsibility of the government, Centre has shown its indifference by setting a paid vaccination policy for citizens 18-45 age group. It has evoked nationwide criticism. Even the Supreme Court has slammed Centre's earlier policy as "arbitrary and irrational" asking the centre to review it. The new regulations were announced only because they were forced to do so. However, the government hasn't forgotten to leave room for the private sectors to nourish their business and gain profit. 25% of the vaccine will be given to the private sector. This can cause inequity unless the Centre procure 100% vaccine and ensure freely available to all. Homa Kausar Vice President

Hathras: Terrorising Students and Journalist to Cover-up Yogi Government’s Failure

U.P police is terrorising students and journalist in order to evade public revulsion against Yogi government due to the maltreatment of brutal rape-murder incident in Hathras. Atikur Rahman, Masud Khan and journalist Sidheeq Kappan were going to visit the family of the Dalit girl Manisha Valmiki on 5th Oct along with the driver, Alam. However, the police arrested them illegally in the absence of any crime and arbitrarily imposed UAPA and sedition charges against them, which is an extreme case of abuse of power. We urge the U.P government to withdraw draconian laws and the release of four innocent persons immediately. The police came up with a series of lies and unfounded allegations against them in contrast to other visitors. The police’s lies on ‘sectarian violence’, ‘fundraising’ and ‘carrying dangerous literature’ are baseless and nonsensical. It is an undisputed fact that the law and order situation in UP deteriorates horribly since Yogi Adityanath assumed office. Atrocities against women escalated and UP became the rape capital of the country after BJP came to power. Now, the safety and security of ordinary people at stake in UP even nobody can travel freely. BJP government tarnish protests that mounted all over the country in response to Hathras rape-murder and demanding justice for her is tainted as a conspiracy against the government. The Yogi government is hatching a conspiracy to protect rapists Takur men. There were immense efforts to tamper with the statement of the victim and the police at one stage even claimed that there was no proof of rape. The forceful abduction of her body from the family and hasty cremation was an attempt by the police to destroy the evidence of rape. The police have cordoned the area and not allowed any rights activists or political leader to visit the bereaved family with the motive of thwarting any legal aid the family may get. All these are part of the conspiracy hatched by Yogi government to save the casteist criminals and cripple the efforts for justice. Leaving Dalits in insecurity and terrorising Muslim youth is an established agenda of BJP and Yogi government is plotting to further this agenda. It is a BJP delusion proposed by RSS that they can suppress the fight for justice by slapping horrible charges and creating an atmosphere of terror. We will no be taken aback by these intimidation tactics and we will fight this enormity through every possible legal and political manner. We appeal to the people of India to come forward jointly to deliver justice to the Dalit girl and these arrested persons. KA Rauf Sherif National General Secretary Campus Front of India

An open letter to Mark Zuckerberg

Mr. Mark, Zuckerberg. Chairman & CEO, Facebook Inc Menlo Park, California USA, 94025 Subject: Political bias of top officials of Facebook India and seeking immediate action against Ms Ankhi Das for her allegiance to hindutva groups that tear down communal harmony Dear, Mr. Zuckerberg, Hope you and your family are doing well. This communication is on behalf of Campus Front of India, a neo social students movement, which aim to develop a promising generation of youth which zealously safeguard the foundational values of the country. You might be aware of the story which was given by WSJ article titled "Facebook's hate speech rules collide with Indian politics" dated August 14, 2020. Followingly several reputed media covered the story in depth and detail. These reports reveal that the hate speech campaigns undertaken by BJP got adequate support from Facebook India in the backdrop of Delhi election. The reports categorically point to Ms. Ankhi Das (of Facebook India) who has provided the BJP with favorable treatment by diluting the safeguards of Facebook against hate speeches. The hate campaigns resulted in the drastic polarization and flaring up anti minority sentiments among the people which eventually led to Delhi genocide. This is a damning and serious allegation of Facebook India teaming up with a sectarian political agenda and interfering in India's electoral democracy. The government of Delhi state which inquired into the Delhi genocide has found deliberate and intentional inaction of Facebook to contain hateful content in India for vested reasons, which led to the government's Peace and Harmony Committee to summon the officials of Facebook India. As you would be mindful, India's ruling regime led by Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) patronise an ideology which promotes Hindu majoritarian state and spread hatred against minorities. BJP has been consistently using Facebook and WhatsApp to divide people along religious lines and further communal agenda like abrogation of 370 Act in Kashmir, CAA- NRC Act etc. The police has also pointed to widespread use of Facebook and WhatsApp for mass manufacturing and propagation of vile, hateful communal content to incite violence during Delhi pogrom. India is one of the largest democratic country in the world and we expect that Facebook will not collude with BJP for destroying secular and democratic nature of the country. India is one of the biggest markets in terms of userbase for Facebook and WhatsApp. It is the urge of the people of India that Facebook which stands for connecting people should not foster a divisive group as BJP. We hope Facebook to be more committed to its social and moral responsibility to the people of India rather than an unprincipled drive to profit. Permit us to humbly suggest the following course of action. 1. Set up a high-level investigation and inquiry into the operations and practices of Facebook India. 2. Ms. Ankhi Das, of Facebook India must be terminated with immediate effect. 3. Ensure a more diverse Facebook India team representing various sections of population. Campus Front of India believed that this is a matter of grave concern to our nation and to the world. We sincerely hope that you treat this issue with utmost priority. Thank you.
