CPIML organized statewide protests in Uttar Pradesh on 7 January 2022 to demand arrest of the persons who spread communal venom through hate speeches in ‘Dharm Sansads’ and to ban such events that harm democracy, secularism and our Constitution. A memorandum was sent to the President with these demands. The kind of speeches that were made at the so-called Dharm Sansad in Haridwar on 17-19 December 2021 were an open call to spreading hate and communal violence. Calls were made for the genocide of Muslims and to become terrorists in order to commit violence, which is a direct conspiracy to break the country. All the speakers spoke openly of inciting violence and giving rewards to those who kill people of other religions. But the Uttarakhand Police neither registered a case against them under appropriate sections nor arrested the accused. This smacks of protection of the accused by the ruling powers. It has now been announced that such 'Dharm Sansads' which spread religious hysteria and terrorism are going to be organized across the country including Aligarh in UP. In the capital Lucknow, a protest was organized at the Ambedkar statue in Hazratganj after which a memorandum addressed to the President was submitted. The protest was led by CPIML District in-charge Ramesh Singh Sengar. State Committee member Radheshyam Maurya, AIPWA State Vice President Meena, AISA State President Ayush Srivastava, AICCTU District Secretary Madhusudan Magan, RC Singh, Manju Gautam and others participated in the protest.
In Banaras, a march was organized under the leadership of District Secretary Amarnath and a memorandum was submitted to the District Magistrate's office under the leadership of State Committee member Mithai Lal. Protest marches and meetings were also held at Sakaldiha and Chakia in Chandauli, Lalganj in Azamgarh District, Sonbhadra District, and Comrade Sarju Pandey Park in Ghazipur District. Similarly, protests were held in Mirzapur and a memorandum was submitted against the hate speeches as well as against the BJP government’s anti-people policies, deteriorating law and order system, gang rape and murder of a girl in Katra Kotwali area and the brutal beating of a youth in Lalganj Thana. Protests were also organized in various other Districts including Basti, Sitapur, Lakhimpur Kheeri, Jalaun and Mathura.
