Srinagar, May 03, KDC: Taking strong note of the expulsion of a teacher from government service on charges of being involved in anti-national activities, Employees’ Joint Action Committee (EJAC) has expressed its indignation pronouncing the decision partial and biased.
In a statement released here to News Agency Kashmir Dot Com (KDC) the Amalgam President Fayaz Shabnum has described this decision as unilateral. “It is a partial decision and biased too where an employee is dismissed from his service and not allowed to put his point across or clear his stand. Among the three pillars of democracy one of the strongest is judiciary in which the deprived lot entrust their faith and seek justice. But barring a person whom you have levelled with such a serious charge, to speak for his defense is criminal. As laid in the constitution of India, a convict can even reach out to the President of the Republic of India and appeal for justice. India being the largest democracy in the world confers this previlage to its citizens. But unfortunately the decision seems more of an autocratic set-up rather democratic”, the statement read. It further more added that, “Idrees has not only to fend for himself but the whole family, at this juncture and age where is he supposed to go and how shall he be able to win bread for himself and his family after having such stained career”.
EJAC makes a fervent appeal to the Lieutenant Governor Shri Manoj Sinha to kindly reconsider the decision and at least allow the culprit speak in his defense before punishing him the brunt of which will be borne not only by him but by his entire family that is completely dependent on his job. Pertinently the decision has sent shivers across the employees fraternity and people have started feeling insecure. It has left tongues wagging and hearts thumping and people fear least the agencies may concoct stories and people may be executed unheard. This, if left unchecked, will become a precedence. People say it is a situation like having “Sword of Damocles” hanging over their heads. Therefore it becomes all the more imperative for the current dispensation to come to the rescue of some innocent souls that have momentarily been targeted for no sin of theirs. (KDC)
