SAHMAT statement condemning the attack on Aamir Khan on 17th April 2006


Sahmat (Safdar Hashmi Memorial Trust) condemns the vandalism of BJP activists in Gujarat directed against Aamir Khan for his support of rehabilitation of oustees from the Narmada dam site. Aamir Khan, in a very reasoned position, has asked for rehabilitation without taking a position on the height of the dam, which has to be decided in conformity with the decision of the Supreme Court. Sahmat expresses solidarity with Aamir Khan and is confident that all efforts to bully him into resiling from his rational position will not succeed.-Rajen Prasad
