114 armed forces veterans write to PM Narendra Modi, call for 'unity in diversity'

New Delhi: In the wake of recent attacks on Dalits and Muslim community in the country, a group of 114 armed forces veterans have penned a letter to Prime Minister Narendra Modi condemning the surge in mob violence and unprecedented attacks by relentless vigilantism of self-proclaimed 'Gau Rakshaks'. In the letter, the 114 veterans of all three forces said that they stand with the 'Not in My Name' campaign, that had mobilised thousands of citizens across the country.

"We are a group of veterans of the Indian Armed Forces who have spent our careers working for the security of our country. Collectively, our group holds no affiliation with any single political party, our only common commitment being to the constitution of India," the letter reads.
"We can no longer look away. We would be doing a disservice to our country if we do not stand up and speak for the liberal and secular values that our constitution espouses. Our diversity is our greatest strength. Dissent is not treason; in fact, it is the essence of democracy. We urge the powers that be at the Centre and in the states to take note of our concerns and urgently act to uphold our constitution, both in letter and in spirit," the retired 'faujis' appealed.

Earlier, PM Modi had also condemned the killing of people in the name of cow protection. "No person in this nation has the right to take the law in his or her own hands. Killing people in the name of 'gau bhakti' is not acceptable. This is not something Mahatma Gandhi would approve,"the PM had said while delivering a speech to mark the centenary of the Sabarmati ashram.
