DYFI expresses solidarity with Dr. Ram Puniyani. He received threat calls on 6th June asking him to stop the anti-hindu work he is doing. Such intimidation of activists is not tolerable. He was threatened earlier in March too. Then three unidentified men had visited his house in the pretext of verifying credentials for passport application. An application he had never made!
Similar threat calls were made to Dr. Narendra Dabholkar, Govind Pansare, MM Kalburgi and Gauri Lankesh too. Certain activists have visited Joint CP Mr. Chaubey yesterday and have raised our concern regarding the threat calls. It is highly condemnable and a matter of serious concern that no inquiries were made into the earlier complaint which was made in March.
Dr. Ram Puniyani is a Nagpur born doctor who is residing in Mumbai. He left his job and became a full time secular activist after Babri Masjid demolition and the riots that followed in Mumbai. He is an excellent orator and an extremely dedicated activist. DYFI stands in solidarity with the crusader against communalism.
