“Remember the news of 121 Adivasis being acquitted after spending 5 years under UA(P)A in jail? Scores of innocents are falsely charged under UA(P)A and presented by investigating agencies as members of banned organizations after fabricating evidence digitally or by other means…”

UA(P)A is Brahmanic Hindutva India’s sugar-coated draconian law to execute capital punishment through extra-judicial means. Now Supreme Court of India has said that mere membership in a banned organization makes the person a criminal and can be prosecuted Under UA(P)A.
This 2023 judgment overrides the 2011 judgment which says “Mere membership of a banned organization will not make a person a criminal unless he resorts to violence or incites people to violence or creates public disorder by violence or incitement to violence.”
Remember the news of 121 Adivasis being acquitted after spending 5 years under UA(P)A in jail? Scores of innocents are falsely charged under UA(P)A and presented by investigating agencies as members of banned organizations after fabricating evidence digitally or by other means. This new ruling will give power to the state to imprison dissenters for years without bail and trial. A common person can be presented as a terrorist tomorrow by the government just by creating a simple story supporting membership! Now the investigation agencies don’t have to add masala and fabricate more evidence to link the arrested person with any action or activity as membership alone is needed for persecution. More Stan Swamys will be killed using this judgment!
Now let’s see the judges who gave out the new ruling.
Justice M.R. Shah, Justice CT Ravikumar, and Justice Sanjay Karol.
1. Justice M.R. Shah had celebrated Narendra Modi as a hero, model, popular, loved, vibrant and visionary leader. He was also part of the bench that suspended Comrade GN Saibaba and co-convicts acquittal in a special sitting on a holiday!
2. Justice CT Ravikumar was part of the bench that upheld the clean chit by SIT for Narendra Modi in the 2002 Anti-Muslim pogrom. There are also several allegations regarding his elevation as a supreme court judge and nepotism surrounding his family relation with former Chief Justice of India, KG Balakrishnan.
The Right to Life of people from marginalised communities depends upon a few individuals sitting in court and the majority of them are Stooges of Brahmanic Hindutva Indian state!
How not to misuse UA(P)A? It can only be done by not using UA(P)A! Under the smoke of parliament, judiciary, executive, legislature and constitution, systematic and institutionalised violence by the Indian State is veiled, normalised, legitimized and justified in name of national security and interests using laws like UA(P)A. Fascist actions are implemented through policies approved by legislature in this country!
No democracy and freedom can be achieved for the marginalised people in India without fighting brahmanical hindutva fascism and Imperialism.It’s from the streets where we got the rights and values prescribed in constitution. It’s through sacrifices and martyrdom we got rights. So when we speak of democracy, primarily we should get to the streets again and strengthen the people’s movement.
Remember that Constitution cannot protect democracy but Democracy can ensure constitutional values and only people’s protests can ensure democracy!
Repeal UA(P)A and all other draconian laws!
