Mumbai – #NotInMyName More than 500 People Turn Up Despite Torrential Rain

THE NEXT PROTEST MUMBAI JULY 3, 4PM  KOTVAL GARDEN, DADAR , NEAR RAILWAY STATION

Mumbai: Several activists, film personalities and youth on Wednesday staged a protest here, opposing ‘community-targeted’ mob lynchings. Actors Shabana Azmi and Konkona Sena Sharma were among those who participated in the protest held at Carter Road in suburban Bandra this evening.

“Killing over food. Not in my Name,” read a placard. “Today’s protest was against the savage culture of mob lynching,” journalist and author Rana Ayyub said.

Shabana Azmi said, “We are demanding a law against mob lynching. I am a proud citizen of my country. This protest that has happened across the country is not specifically in support of Junaid (victim of lynching on Mathura-Delhi train a few days ago)… It’s for all forms of mob lynching, be it of police officer in Srinagar or Junaid or anyone. There is no fear of law….They (culprits) know nobody will do anything. We must recognise that citizens coming together led to justice in Nirbhaya case, so we need do this more. The government needs to take notice and create fear of and the perpetrators should be punished,” she said.

TV actor Vikrant Massey, who also took part in the march, said, “Bollywood celebrities are also part of the country and I feel every common person needs to stand up against this…..It’s not about minority and majority, let’s not get into communal angle. We need to follow the law.”

In Mumbai, several film and television stars – including Vikrant Massey, Rajat Kapoor, Shabana Azmi, Konkona Sen Sharma and Kalki Koechlin – joined the protesters on Carter Road.

 

The protesters sand songs and raised slogans

हो गई है पीर पर्वत-सी पिघलनी चाहिए

हो गई है पीर पर्वत-सी पिघलनी चाहिए,
इस हिमालय से कोई गंगा निकलनी चाहिए।

आज यह दीवार, परदों की तरह हिलने लगी,
शर्त लेकिन थी कि ये बुनियाद हिलनी चाहिए।

हर सड़क पर, हर गली में, हर नगर, हर गाँव में,
हाथ लहराते हुए हर लाश चलनी चाहिए।

सिर्फ हंगामा खड़ा करना मेरा मकसद नहीं,
सारी कोशिश है कि ये सूरत बदलनी चाहिए।

मेरे सीने में नहीं तो तेरे सीने में सही,
हो कहीं भी आग, लेकिन आग जलनी चाहिए।

दुष्यन्त कुमार
