Call to sign

This petition had 8,598 supporters

We stand in complete solidarity and support with Teesta Setalvad and Javed Anand who have devoted a lifetime to upholding the secular values enshrined in the Constitution of India.

They have faced tremendous harassment, abuse, threat to life with the communal forces in power now moving to apprehend them for standing up against hate speech and hate crime and upholding the law of the land.
We condemn this use of force and intimidation and warn the governments of Gujarat and at the centre to desist from these strong arm tactics.
