Mangaluru: The Campus Front of India, State Committee is holding a Girls’ Conference on July 16 under the slogan, “Let’s ensure freedom of choice, uphold democratic values.”
Given the current picture of the State, the violence against women is out of bounds. The Government is not open and not taking any action on women’s safety and against committing atrocities on women. Realising that the uncompromising struggle is the only way to thwart the State’s machineries who are alleged to take away the freedom of choice of women and Muslim students and subvert the democratic system, the students’ jatha will begin at 11.00 am from Jyothi Circle and conclude at Town Hall. Several activists from the National and State will participate in the programme to be held at the Town Hall.
Speaking to mediapersons on Wednesday July 6, District women leaders of the Campus Front of India said, “We are on the threshold of celebrating the 75th anniversary of the country’s independence. In this context, the Government in power is determined to destroy the core values enshrined in the Constitution of the country. The BJP, which is in power, is only sowing communalism in the name of religion and caste and trying to consolidate its political existence by polluting the minds of the people. It is the women who are often the victims of such a senseless, unconstitutional and irresponsible act of a responsible Government, they noted.
Informing that recently, thousands of Muslim girls were stopped from pursuing education because they were wearing headscarves. Lastly, even the judicial system did not get justice for the girl students. Knowing it is pre-planned and on purpose, there is no doubt that the State Government was directly trying to create this problem and deprive Muslim girls of education, they alleged.
Campus Front of India, State Committee Members, Murshida, Fathima Usman, Asreen Bantwal, and Fathima Shazma were present.
