Bangalore, 15 Oct 2017: Popular Front State General Secretary Yasser Hassan, while delivering his welcome address to the gathering at the Grand Conference held at Palace Ground Bengaluru, highlighted that today’s grand conference is entitled as Gauri Lankesh Vedike, for it was the same stage, same venue that Gauri Lankesh had delivered her bold address and raised voice against the fascist forces in the country.
Amidst recent media reports of the Central Government moves to Popular Front of India, tens of thousands, men, women and children, drawn from all parts of Kerala, flocked to Trivandrum city to attend the mega rally and the grand conference that followed, organized by the Kerala state committee of the organization with the slogan “We also have something to say”. The massively attended gathering became a warning against the sinister attempts of the right-wing government to suppress democratic Muslim movements and initiatives labeling them as anti-national and demonizing them.
The meeting of the National Executive Council of Popular Front of India strongly condemned the vilification campaign launched by certain sections of media and challenged them to produce concrete evidence to prove their allegations. They quote an alleged National Investigation Agency report which looks like a rehash of false propaganda carried by the Hindutva organizations especially RSS. The cases listed by the media quoting NIA are so insignificant and unrelated to Popular Front as an organization. The meeting has decided to move legally against this ill-advised propaganda.
New Delhi: In a statement issued by the National Secretariat of Popular Front of India after its meeting presided by the Chairman, E Abubacker in Calicut, claimed that because of the consistent stand taken by Popular Front of India against the fascist ideology of the Sangh Parivar and because of speaking out against the failure of the government in its duties, there are attempts being made to repress Popular Front.
Popular Front of India North Zone will organize a Grand Public Meeting on 5th November in Delhi highlighting the theme “We also have something to say”. This conference is being organized in the context of the moves to interrupt the activities of the organization by anti-people and anti-minority right-wing forces by misusing power.
Popular Front Chairman E Abubacker expressed deep condolence on the demise of Muslim leader from Karnataka Kamarul Islam. E Abubacker has said that Qamarul Islam’s death will leave the gap of wise compassionate leader for the Muslim community in the region. He deeply cared for his people. He entered politics through Muslim League and emerged as strong leader in Congress. He is a Congress MLA at present and he remained invincible politician in Kalaburagi until his death. The undying support he received from people is proof enough how much they trusted him.
