GIA submits memorandum against Hate-India campaign at JNU and Press Club of India



Group of Intellectuals and Academcians

Press Club of India
Subject: Memorandum by GIA (Group in Intellectuals and Academicians) against the Hate-India campaign at JNU and Press Club of India
Dear Mr. Jalali
The country is witnessing shocking incidents which happened in the recent past where anti-India pro-terrorist slogans were heard asking for disintegration of the country. Such incidents strengthen the hands of anti-national forces, enemies of the country and terrorists who are foes of the humanity.

Two such incidents in recent days have shook the peace-loving patriots of the country and the collective conscience of the society-firstly, the anti-India pro-terrorist slogans by a section of students in Jawahar Lal Nehru University on 9th February 2016 and secondly in the aftermath of this, the organization of a seminar on 11th February 2016 in the Press Club of India wherein in the backdrop of the pictures of terrorists, Afzal Guru and Maqbool Bhatt, anti-India slogans were shouted.
Legislative, executive, judiciary and press are the four pillars of Indian democracy. Independence press has always been the four pillars of Indian democracy, however, such incident on the Press Club of India has brought disrepute to the fourth pillar of democracy. In the light of this, we demand the following :
Proper investigation into the 10th February 2016 incidence at the Press Club of India.
Termination of the membership of such persons from the Press Club of India who are involved in creating hatred towards India.
Examining and exposing the entire links who provide political, psychological, moral and financial support to such anti-India persons and terminate their membership as well.
To frame guidelines so that the Press Club of India is not used by such India-haters in future.
Here I would like to mention that GIA is a vibrant group of socially active professional women belonging to different spheres of life, which includes a Pro-Vice Chancellor, a President of India Awardee, Supreme Court lawyers, internationally renowned artist/dancers, professors, mountaineers, writers, IT professionals, etc. They have been debating and discussing issues related to women, society and the nation at large through seminars, workshops, and writing in newspapers and bringing out a magazine which have established a considerable impact in the academic circles. We as a socially active and alert group have witnessed that the Press has been exposing the traitors and hate-India brigade of the country in the past. We expect that the press will be more vigilant in future and will continue exposing such further.
Warm Regard
Monika Arora
