In a letter written by 35 students of the Punjab University, it is alleged that the Government of India has indulged in vindictive, atrocious and unconstitutional abuse of power to subvert the constitutional rights of farmers of to protest in peace. “After more than two months of peaceful protests in their home states, served with incompatible gestures of Government of India when farmers (felt marooned) decided to approach to the National Capital Delhi, the peaceful protestors (farmers) were thrashed and walloped that it seemed raising voice for the Fundamental Rights as provided by the Supreme Law of the Nation is a dreadful crime (which it is not),” states the letter. It is alleged that the media has polarized the whole peaceful movement by associating it with separatism and the Delhi Police has employed illegitimate use of water cannons, tear gases shells and lathis, and has even proceeded to “jail” some of the farmers, amounting to illegal detention. It is significant to note at this juncture that the Supreme Court had, while hearing a batch of petitions seeking removal of farmers from Delhi borders, had categorically stated that there can be no impediment in the exercise of right to protest as long as it is non-violent and does not result in damage to the life and properties of other citizens. Farmers Protests can Continue Without Impediment And Breach Of Peace By Protestors And Police: Supreme Court In this backdrop, it is submitted that the farmers, just like any other citizen of this democratic nation, are free to express their will and sentiments, however, the Central Government is turning deaf and indifferent in toto to their plight. The students averred that such actions are not only violative to the fundamental rights of the protestors but are also opposed to India’s obligations under the International Laws viz., Universal Declaration of Human Rights 1948; ICCPR, which India ratified in 1979 and ICESCR, which was also ratified in 1979. The students have thus urged the Chief Justice of India to take suo moto cognizance of the matter and direct the governments at both Central and State level to ensure safety of all protesters and look into alleged illegal detention of innocent farmers. It is prayed that an inquiry be instituted against the Haryana Police, regarding illegitimate use of water cannons, tear gases shells and lathis on peaceful protesting farmers. Further, the Haryana and Delhi Police be directed to withdraw all the cases against innocent farmers which were allegedly registered under political vendetta. A direction is also sought against the media for spreading fake news and engaging in misrepresentation, polarisation and denationalisation of the whole issue. Inter alia, it is urged: provide basic amenities for all, especially women, children and elderly. Mobile toilet vans should be provided at protest places. Issue appropriate guidelines regarding hygienic conditions at protest sites in the backdrop of COVID-19. Click Here To Download Letter Read LetterNext Story
Sanford Police Department(SANFORD, Fla.) — A 9-year-old boy who went missing from his Texas home in 2017 has been found hundreds of miles away in Florida, authorities said. Police in Sanford, Florida, were investigating a suspicious vehicle early Saturday morning when they found Joshua Graham inside with his non-custodial father, 52-year-old Kenneth Graham.“I am proud that the officers responding to this call quickly identified that something didn’t seem right, and those instincts led to this happy conclusion,” Sanford Police Chief Cecil Smith said in a statement Saturday.Kenneth Graham allegedly left Texas with his son at the end of 2017 without telling his wife, Joshua’s mother, who was granted sole custody in February 2018. Investigators believed he was taking Joshua to Tallahassee, Florida, where he had previously lived, according to a press release from the Sanford Police Department. Texas authorities filed Joshua missing and under the status of “abducted by non-custodial parent” on March 26.“Regardless of the circumstances, the feelings of loss and devastation are indescribable when any child is taken from a parent,” Smith said. “The officers and investigators involved in this case are delighted to have played a significant role in reuniting this mother with her child after two long years.” Joshua was taken into custody of Child Protective Services on Saturday while he awaited reunification with his mother. The state of Texas may file criminal charges at a later date, according to the Sanford Police Department.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.

In part, the idea of America involves risks, he said. In a way similar to that of a business, America must manage its risks. In addition to leadership, brand name also transcends the fields of business and national security. Ridge invoked images of the first pioneers, the lunar landings and the millions of American servicemen and women as examples of American risk-takers. “Everyone in the organization has value,” he said. “All work has dignity.” Addressing leadership, Ridge informed students on the importance of communication skills and the importance of not only knowing, but also being able to articulate one’s mission statement. “We all knew what we were doing the day and morning of Sept. 11,” Tom Ridge began. “Complacency [is the single greatest danger to national security] — the notion that as time elapse we forgot that we are at war with a belief system and leaders of a belief system who patient and persistent.” Yet, despite America’s shortcomings, Ridge maintains a positive and optimistic view of the nation he loves. “I can say to you in good faith that we have been true to our values,” Ridge said. “Americans live in freedom. We don’t live in fear … People all over the world still love the idea of America.” Ridge explained that America does not always abide by its value system. This is perhaps most evident in the recent controversy over Guantanamo Bay. While recognizing the complexities of the situation, Ridge said he believes the prison’s occupants are entitled to due process. Ridge, whose many titles have included the governor of Pennsylvania and Secretary of Homeland Security, now serves as president and CEO of Ridge Global, LLC. Speaking in the Jordan Auditorium in Mendoza on the weekend of the anniversary of the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, Ridge offered a presentation that fittingly tied both business and national security. “[My proudest accomplishment is that] I’ve been given that many opportunities and my service was valued,” he said. “Notre Dame has a brand … America has a brand as well. It’s our value system,” Ridge said. “We have to be consistent with [our value system]. The rest of the world is watching.” “America has always had risk management — we’re a country of risk-takers,” he said. “We manage our risks.” When answering audience questions, Ridge expanded upon previous answers and addressed other new topics, including the relationship between the economy and national security, the challenge of cooperation between national agencies and the need for a more effective use of America’s soft power. Ridge said homeland security has an objective to secure and preserve freedom — including religious expression. “Titles get compliance,” he said. “Leaders get commitments.”
