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
