AMUSU to organize convention against state excesses on innocent citizens

ALIGARH December 10: The Aligarh Muslim University Students’ Union (AMUSU) is organising a Convention against ‘State Excesses on Innocent Citizens’ on December 11, 2014 at 7:30 PM at University’s Kennedy Auditorium. The event will be aimed at sensitizing the students on the criminalization and victimization of innocent citizens through state agencies.

Fawwaz Shaheen, a student of Law at AMU informed that the campaign has been initiated to create a strong resistance movement against the grave injustice. Fawwaz said that the Chief Guest of the program is Abdul Mubeen, an AMU alumnus who was also a victim of such injustice and just this year has been acquitted and proved innocent of all charges.

He further informed that other important speakers at the event include Khaleequzzaman, Wasif Haidar, Matiur Rahmaan, who were all victims of the same unfairness, but subsequently acquitted from all terror charges.

Fawwaz said the AMUSU strongly believes that injustice in any form is condemnable and must be encountered. However, the greatest form of injustice is when innocent citizens are prone to constant fear of being arrested, tortured or even killed by the forces of the state, pertaining to their religious, regional or tribal identity, he added.

Fawwaz told that the AMUSU has invited Prashant Paikray, POSCO Pratirodh Sangram Samiti, Odisha, Babloo Loitongbam, Activist for Save Irom Sharmila Campaign, Manipur, Kavita Srivastav, General Secretary, People’s Union for Civil Liberties, Teesta Setalvad, Citizens for Justice and Peace, Parveena Ahangar, Chairperson, Association of Parents of Disappeared Persons, Kashmir, and Akhlaque Ahmad, National Coordinator, Association for Protection of Civil Rights, New Delhi.

The aim of AMUSU is to bring all these resistance movements struggling against various forms of state excesses, on a common platform and prepare the roadmap for future.
