NSUI District President Rose Tirkey faces flak for suspending 7 members for 3 years for writing ‘Jai Shri Ram’ in WhatsApp Group
Jamshedpur: ABVP Jamshedpur Mahanagar Unit has condemned the suspension of 7 NSUI members from the student wing of Congress party allegedly for writing ‘Jai Shri Ram’ in a WhatsApp group chat.
In a press release, ABVP on Tuesday invited all the 7 suspended NSUI members to join ABVP any time. The organisation also described the action of NSUI district president Rose Tirkey as anomalous and violative of religious freedom as well as privacy rights.
ABVP said in the press release that it came to know from newspapers that NSUI district president Rose Tirkey has suspended 7 members of NSUI for writing ‘Jai Shri Ram’ in a group chat on the grounds that it went against the ideology of the organisation.
The convenor of Kolhan unit of ABVP Shantanu Chakraborty condemned the NSUI action and called it infringement of religious freedom.
He said that the incident shows the attitude of NSUI as well as its parent political party Indian National Congress towards Bhagwan Shri Ram.
He said that Indian constitution gives right to every citizen to observe its religious customs and therefore the action against the 7 members of NSUI is violative of Indian constitution.
He said that ABVP has kept its doors open for all the 7 NSUI members who have been harassed for their practicing their faith. He said that these suspended NSUI members can join ABVP any time they want.
