Protest the anti-Hindu 'Prevention of Communal and Targeted Violence Bill, 2011'
Introduction - What is this bill and why to protest ?
Apparently 'Prevention of Communal and Targeted Violence (Access to Justice and Reparations) Bill, 2011' is brought to curb the riots taking place between majority and minority communities. After the alleged post-godhra riots in Gujarat, the so called secularists are going pillar to post to bring this enactment. So called social activists like Teesta Settlewad, Asgar Ali ENgineer are the people involved in pushing this draft bill.

Prevention of Communal and Targeted Violence (Access to Justice and Reparations) Bill, 2011
English Version Hindi Version

The draconian provisions of the new Law


1. Prot ect ion t o religious or linguist ic minorit y and Scheduled Cast es and t ribes - It is directed to punish the offenses done or anticipated against a group which essentially comprises of a religious or linguistic minority and Scheduled Castes and tribes (Sec 1 (e)). Nobody else is given protection. If in certain area, hindu population is minority and attack is targeted against them or where the minorities themselves start organized attacks and riots,

this law wont help to Hindus. Such is the viciousness of the draft bill. Crimes commit t ed by t he minorit ies will be prosecut ed by t he regular criminal procedure. 2. Curbing f reedom of expression by t erming it as Hat e propaganda - Even publishing, communicating or disseminating of opposition may be termed as Hate Propaganda u/s 8 and is may extend to 3 years and/or fine. Again, it is targeted against the Hindu literature and and not anti-hindu literature. Section 18 makes anything said or expressed against the minorities may be taken up as offence under this Act. The Govt. is to keep a constant vigil on this as to who is criticizing minorities, even fair criticizing may invite action by state else the public servant will be prosecutes - Sec. 18 - This provision may be misused widely even in the time of peace, for it is a continuing process. 3. Of f enses t o be non-bailable and cognizable - The offenses under the act are summarily non-bailable and cognizable even if they are not so under I.P.C. by virtue of (Sec. 11 and 58) 4. Government machinery will be made a slave t o t he minorit ies - Under this Bill, public servants will be under constant supervision and torture- dereliction of duty and it casts vicarious liability on them(Sec. 12 to 16). As also the victim can at any point of time gets a right to know the stage of proceedings and can complain to the National authority against the Govt. Machinery. 5. Obeying orders is not a def ense - Apart from the vicarious liability, the order obeying police etc. can not say that they obeyed the orders. Even if one obeys an order of his senior, he also is a accused. In the times of riots or attacks, controlling the same will be too much difficult because of this. (Sec. 16) 6. Creat ion of a post - Def ender f or Just ice and Reparat ions. - (Sec. 56) It appears that his sole activity will be to press for the rights of minorities. 7. Creat ion of Nat ional Aut horit y f or Communal Harmony, Just ice and Reparat ion 1. It shall have separate investigation agency with a Director General of Police GP. (Sec. 29) 2. It's advisories and recommendations will be binding on the State and Central Govt. (Sec. 32 (a) and (d) read with Sec. 29) 3. It can interfere in the Court proceeding ( SEc. 32 j and k) 4. It will have the status of a Civil Court. 8. The public servant s like Dist rict Magist rat e or Police Superint endent made direct ly answerable t o t he Nat ional Aut horit y. (Sec. 72,29, 69, 71, 4138,39) 9. Presumpt ion of guilt and burden of proof on t he accused (Hindus) - The accused will have to prove innocence ( Sec. 74) This changes the entire legal proceeding against the hindu accused people.

10. More t han one t hird of public prosecut ors will be f rom t he religious or linguist ic minorit y. ( Sec. 78) 11. Provision f or f unds - There will be funds diverted from the Consolidated Funds of India in addition to the fines collected under this act which will be disbursed to the alleged victims. 12.
