“UP Epicentre Of Politics Of Hate”: 104 Ex-IAS Officers To Yogi Adityanath
“UP is blithely undermining that very Constitution…” the letter’s signatories said, pointing to high court rulings that said choosing a life partner was a “fundamental right”
The letter flagged multiple instances of minorities being targeted, including a horrific case from UP’s Moradabad earlier this month – in which two men were allegedly accosted by the Bajrang Dal, dragged to the police and arrested on allegations that one of them had forced a Hindu girl to marry him.
“What is inexcusable is the police remained mute as vigilantes harassed and interrogated the innocent couple. (The woman) suffered a miscarriage, possibly as a result of harassment,” the letter said.
