Welfare Party of India expressed deep anguish at the sad demise of Fr Stan Swamy and called it an institutional murder.
Dr SQR Ilyas National President of the Welfare Party of India said the nation grieves the death of Fr. Stan Swamy who was the victim of the state-manufactured terror and was incarcerated under terrorist charges under the Unlawful Activities Prevention Act (UAPA) for his alleged role in the 2018 Bhima Koregaon and Elgar Parishad case only to curb his tribal rights activism.
He was arrested and subjected to harassment at the age of 84 and was suffering from Parkinson’s disease.
He was even denied bail on medical grounds and finally under the direction of Bombay High court was shifted to Holy Family hospital where he breathed his last.
Dr Ilyas said that the Modi government has Fr. Stan Swamy’s blood on its sleeve, He further demanded the release of all political prisoners across the nation incarcerated only to curb dissent.
