We call on the Catholic Archdiocese of Bombay to encourage the withdrawal of complaints against Indian Rationalist Sanal Edamaruku
Situation getting worse for Sanal
Jul 4, 2012 — The latest from Sanal is not good news.
In the last two days police have turned up at his home in Delhi twice with an arrest warrant. He is currently in Europe (at an undisclosed location) but is worried that the Indian authorities will insist he returns to India to face the charges.
His appeal for anticipatory bail, which he took to the high court in Mumbai having been turned down in a lower court, has been tossed out again (the higher court insists it goes through the lower courts first), which means arrest will lead to certain imprisonment for an indeterminate period.
We are striving to keep up the pressure - please share the petition, and stay tuned for more updates.
