Statement of Solidarity with Professor Anand Teltumbde

:
A Petition initiated by International Scholars
We, the undersigned protest the false allegations by the government of the state of Maharashtra
against Professor Anand Teltumbde and strongly condemn the threat of his imminent arrest.
Professor Teltumbde’s house was illegally searched by the Maharashtra police on August 28,
2018. The state and central governments then acted in concert to concoct manifestly baseless
charges against Dr. Teltumbde, and have threatened him with arrest under the UAPA (Unlawful
Activities Prevention Act) Act, a draconian law that allows the state to suspend a citizen’s right
to a fair trial and detain him or her indefinitely. Such dangerous allegations against one of India’s
leading and most prolific public intellectuals is a grave attack on democracy and civil liberties,
and urgent redress is necessary.

Professor Teltumbde is a distinguished scholar, civil rights activist, and one of India’s leading
public intellectuals. Admired by many as an organic intellectual of the Dalit community, his
writings have contributed immensely to critical debates on democracy, globalization and social
justice. He has simultaneously built an academic career as a management scientist specializing in
the cutting-edge fields of ‘big data analytics’ and cybernetics, in which he also enjoys a stellar
reputation. His astute analysis on the dynamics of caste and class and on the relevance of Dr.
B.R. Ambedkar (an eminent scholar of caste and who is the chief architect of the Indian
Constitution) for contemporary society are essential references for scholars and are required
reading at many of our universities. He is frequently an invited speaker at international
conferences, demonstrating the respect his work commands all over the globe.

The attack on Dr. Teltumbde is only the latest in an ongoing series of attacks on human rights
lawyers, civil rights activists and scholars engineered by the Right-wing Hindu nationalist party
ruling at the center and the state. Since June 2018, nine activists have been imprisoned on similar
fabricated charges as Dr. Teltumbde. The arrested are Sudha Bharadwaj, Varavara Rao, Vernon
Gonsalves, Arun Ferreira, Surendra Gadling, Mahesh Raut, Rona Wilson, Shoma Sen and Sudhir
Dhawale. Two others, Gautam Navlakha and Stan Swamy are also under threat of arrest in the
same case. This group of twelve are among India’s most respected activists and intellectuals who
have consistently fought for the democratic rights of the socially marginalized and oppressed
groups, such as Dalits (formerly treated as “untouchables”), Adivasis (Indigenous tribal
communities), workers, and religious minorities. As long-time observers of Indian democracy,
we are shocked by the state’s vicious persecution of intellectual-activists who have devoted their
lives to the defense of the powerless and the weak. Moreover, in targeting Dr. Teltumbde, a man
of exceptional antecedent as a corporate leader, high caliber academician and celebrated public
intellectual, the state is sending a message to the entire country that it could go to any extent to
repress the voice of people if they dare to dissent.

In solidarity with the accused, and with unequivocal support to Dr. Teltumbde and the others, we
urge the governments of Maharashtra and India to act with conscience, to withdraw all charges
and to uphold democracy.
As scholars committed to democracy and social justice, we demand that

• All actions to arrest Dr. Anand Teltumbde be stopped immediately.
• All charges against Dr. Anand Teltumbde and the above mentioned activists be dropped.

******************************* STOP PRESS!! ******************************
Dr. Anand Teltumbde was illegally arrested in the wee hours of Saturday, February 2, when he
arrived at Mumbai airport. The Pune sessions court termed his arrest illegal and forced the Pune
police to release him. This arrest & release drama is no consolation at all because Anand's bail
petition will be heard in the Mumbai High Court before February 11, 2019, the date set by the
Supreme Court. Our campaign therefore is even more urgent at this time.

I know the Bhima Koregaon from
visiting and from its importance as
the site chosen by Dr. B. R.
Ambedkar, for one of his first public
demonstrations of Dalit pride. The
fact that casteist politicians chose it as
the location for an attack on Dalits
and now casteist police have chosen
that attack as a twisted excuse for an
assault Anand Teltumbde goes to the
heart of the contemporary struggle of
Dalits against the caste system that
continues to hold modern India
enthralled. Teltumbde is one of the
most important writers and activists
in the Dalit struggle. An attack upon
him is an attack on the Dalit struggle
for human rights. Teltumbde's work
is a brilliant exposé of caste
aggression and caste atrocities, known

Dr Anand Teltumbde is not only a
distinguished scholar of Dalit history,
but he is also a fearless advocate of
the rights of Dalits and others in India
who remain disenfranchised. He has
done nothing more than exercise his
rights of freedom of speech and act as
a voice of conscience. The attempts
to stifle his voice must be condemned
2019/02/02 in the strongest possible terms and it
3:00:06 PM University of California, is imperative that people rise to his
