Indian Home Minister; Trial Court Judges; Two Supreme Court Judges; Sanctioning Authority Stand Convicted in Public’s Eyes! – Professor G. N. Saibaba’s Acquittal

by P.S. Sahni & Shobha Aggarwal

Saibaba had published our article – within 9 days of Saibaba’s arrest (euphemism for abduction) on 9 May 2014. The article titled:

“Professor G.N. Saibaba – A Prisoner of Conscience” was published on 18 May 2014. See here.

Ten years of his life – as also of others incarcerated with him – has gone waste. Their careers have been ruined; family members devastated and underwent extreme economic hardships. The acquittal by Bombay High Court now proves beyond doubt that the following were colluding:

Indian Home Minister; trial court judges; two pliant Supreme Court judges who sent the case back to Bombay High Court after his acquittal in 2022 by the same court; the sanctioning authority for prosecuting him and five others under UAPA; the Solicitor General of India for being more loyal than the king; and the then Chief Justice of India who acted at superfast speed on an evening hour to send the case to a pliant SC bench after Saibaba’s acquittal in 2022.

The release of these innocent persons proves how hollow, deceitful and orchestrated was the campaign of calumny let loose by the Prime Minister of India and his clap-trap of horde of ministers about ‘urban naxals; Khan Market gang; tukde-tukde gang.’ The corporate press behaved like criminal gangs disseminating fake views and biased reporting for over a decade. Remember there are tens of thousands of ordinary people incarcerated under draconian laws in India. They should all be released immediately.

If and when the present regime is kicked out of power the aforementioned politicians/professionals should face a judicial commission for their acts of omission and commission in subverting justice and killing dissent.

On 14 March 2017 and 17 April 2017, CC published our two articles titled:

“In India Any Social Activist Can Be Arrested, Charged And Tried – Sans Evidence – For Terrorism: Kobad Ghandy’s Case.” See here and here.

The case of Saibaba and five others proves this to be axiomatic.
