New Delhi: India’s civil rights watched
PUCL strongly condemns attack on Prashant Bhushan in his chamber in the Supreme Court today. It is an despicable act by those who have no faith in freedom of speech and expression enshrined in our constitution . PUCL believes that these elements have got encouraged recently due to soft handling of them in past by various state governments – irrespective of political party in power- in certain parts of the country. It is precisely because of this that these intolerant elements have assumed threatening proportions. PUCL demands that the central government must take strict actions against these elements and set an example of them so as to prevent repeat of such incidents in future.
