Professor Roop Rekha Verma, former Acting Vice-Chancellor of Lucknow University, showed extraordinary courage and bravery to vouch for the bail of journalist Siddique Kappan, who has been languishing behind bars in Uttar Pradesh for months.

The bail conditions required two state residents to be sureties, and given the prevailing political climate, no one seemed willing to come forward. Until, of course, Verma volunteered to vouch for this journalist from Kerala.

I met Roop Rekha Verma twice and she seemed like a woman obsessed with a well-rounded personality. Soft-spoken, humble and humble, sincerity and genuineness seemed to be evident in the way she spoke and spoke.

Unfortunately, there are only a few of these today, and we must salute her and her spirit. The courage of Roop Rekha Verma, who lives unreservedly and away from media attention, fighting for human rights, is indeed a rarity in today’s dark times.

The moves are ongoing

Hundreds of people are displaced not only because of natural disasters, but also because of the political climate prevailing in the country.

Displacements and forced displacements are taking place in several states of the country amid communal provocations, forcing victims to flee to protect themselves and their families.

Political mafia along with land mafia are using cunning strategies to effect such displacements and forced changes in several regions of Remote Delhi, Haryana, Uttar Pradesh, Gujarat and Madhya Pradesh.

In fact, recently, Bilkis Bano and her family have been moving from place to place, from village to village in Gujarat for safety. Couldn’t that be called displacement?

A few years ago, the All India Secular Forum team led by LS Gardenia was one of the first forums to focus on a series of communal incidents in two villages, Ghandwani and Pipalia, in the Dhar district of Madhya Pradesh. These incidents in 2016 were so serious that Muslim families fled their homes.

A quote from this report: “On October 12, more than 40 houses and about the same number of shops belonging to Muslims were set on fire in two villages… After setting fire to shops in Gandwana, a violent mob entered the village of Pipalia and set many houses on fire. In order to escape the fury of the riotous crowd, the residents left their homes. This gave free rein to the mob, which burned everything in the houses or looted… In fact, nothing was left. The mob attacked every Muslim they came across. One woman told us it was a “war-like situation”. Members of the crowd hurled choice insults: “Why are you here?” Go to Pakistan, traitors!”
