Bar Council of India has strongly condemned the acts of Red Fort siege, calling it an act of violence, vandalism and treason on the Republic Day.
In an official letter head, Bar Council of India said, “We strongly condemn the acts of violence, vandalism and treason committed on Republic Day by anti-social and anti-national disguised as farmers. The acts of sacrilege of the Red Fort podium and the National Flag, which are symbols of pride, honour and sovereignty of the country are unpardonable. All those responsible for these acts including the abettors and instigators from various political and other outfits should be immediately identified, brought to book and punished.
The farmer leaders have sinfully failed to fulfill their commitments given to Delhi Police to keep the farmers march under check and now it’s their moral duty to forthwith call off the agitation and lift the Dharna from borders of Delhi, which, otherwise has made lives of thousands of Delhites and those living in neighbouring states miserable.
There were intelligence inputs doing round that some elements out of the Kisan Morcha were keen to go to the Red Fort on 26th January. It is astounding to see that despite advance intelligence reports no proper security arrangements were made at the Red Fort and put the whole country to shame. The Government should fix the responsibility in this regard and take suitable action against the erring police officials and those in charge of security arrangements.
