3. Massive protest programme - 6 December
On 6th December various secular and progressive groups, organisations and individuals are jointly organising a massive protest demonstration in front of Town Hall. This protest is against the attempted communalisation of the Bababudangiri shrine by the Sangh Parivar and also against the communal mobilization by the VHP for its Virath Hindu Samajothsava in which Pravin Togadia will be participating.
We request all of you to gather in front of Town Hall by 4:30pm. Please bring placards, banners with you.
After the protest, there will be a cultural programme at Samsa open-air theatre (next to Town Hall) from 6:30pm onwards. A film on the Bababudangiri issue, made by Pedestrian Pictures, will also be screened during this programme.
Please join in large numbers to make the protest a success. - Bababudangiri Souharda Vedike (Bangalore)
