Soni Sori’s Health Failing (Hindi)

There is a (as far as I could gather) protest fast planned on the 29th at Rajghat.

सोनी सोरी की प्राण रक्षा हेतु उपवास

जेल मे सोनी सोरी का स्वास्थ्य गिरता जा रहा है ! सर्वोच्च न्यायलय मे सोनी सोरी के द्वारा पुलिस पर लगाये गये बर्बरता के आरोपों की पुष्टि मेडिकल रिपोर्ट द्वारा हो गयी है ! डाक्टरों ने सोनी सोरी के शरीर मे पुलिस द्वारा ठूंसे गये पत्थर निकाल कर सुप्रीम कोर्ट को भेज दिये हैं ! इसके बावजूद अभी तक आरोपित पुलिस अधिकारियों के विरुद्ध कार्यवाही का निर्देश नहीं दिया गया है ! सोनी के गिरते स्वास्थ्य के बावजूद उसके इलाज की उसकी प्रार्थना की सुनवाई को लगातार टाला जा रहा है !

हम सभी नागरिक इस अमानवीय रवैय्ये से बेहद दुखी हैं ! हम सोनी सोरी के पक्ष मे अपनी एकजुटता व्यक्त करने और इस अन्याय के विषय मे ध्यान आकर्षित करने के लिये राजघाट पर 29 फरवरी बुधवार को एक दिन का सांकेतिक उपवास करेंगे ! सभी साथी साथ आयें ! अनेकों महिला संगठनों ने इस कार्यक्रम हेतु अपनी एकजुटता दर्शाई है !

Delhi – Fast at Rajghat in solidarity with Soni Sori, Feb 29

February 28, 2012

Fast to Save Soni Sori’s Life

Note from Himanshu Kumar

Soni Sori’s health is deteriorating in jail. The accusations of police brutality and torture made by her in the Supreme Court have been substantiated by the the medical report. The doctors have sent the Supreme Court stones that the police had forced into Soni’s body. Despite this, thus far there have been no orders to take action against the accused police officers. And in spite of her failing health, hearings on her appeal for treatment are continually being postponed.

All of us, citizens of India, are extremely saddened by this inhuman attitude. We will undertake a one-day symbolic fast on Wednesday, the 29th of February at Rajghat to show solidarity with Soni Sori and to call attention to the injustice being meted out to her. Please join us! Several women’s organizations have expressed their solidarity with our fast. The fast will take place from 6am to 6pm. You are also invited to come and join the dialog at any point in the day, at your inconvenience.

We also hope that friends elsewhere in the country as well as abroad are able to organize events on this day to demand justice for Soni Sori. This program should also been seen as a general protest against sexual assaults and torture committed against women in police custody.
