The J&K High Court Bar Association Srinagar, strongly condemns the incident of attack made on Mr. Prashant Bushan, Senior Supreme Court lawyer, in his office chamber on 12.10.2011. Mr. Prashant Bushan who is an important member of team Hazare was scheduled to give an interview to a TV channel and had just posed for a question to be asked from him, when he was attacked and brutally assaulted by three persons, who barged into his office room and without any provocation of any kind abused, kicked and slapped him, and then tried to drag him out of his office, for having said that referendum should be held in Kashmir, if the people are not prepared to stay with India. The brutal assault of the three hooligans amply shows that there is no rule of law in India and anyone can do anything to any person at anytime, which may go even to the extent of causing his death if he speaks the truth. It also indicates that there is no freedom of speech or expression in India and if someone expresses an honest thought of gives a good opinion, which is not liked by another, he can be made to loose his life. It also depicts that the fanatics in India, who are sponsored and patronized by one or the other political party, are ruling the roost and they are so intolerant that they can cause harm to anyone, without having any regard or respect for his age, status or stature and they can even kill that person who has been deeply involved in social structuring of the society and has been in the line light for ensuring the safety, dignity and liberty of every human being.
