N Saibaba merit particular attention. Professor Saibaba, a Lecturer of English

sentence in prison. Convicted in 2014 for alleged association with outlawed

Prashant, Pandu and Vijay were also given harsh prison sentences along with
Professor Saibaba in similar dubious circumstances.
invited speakers Abha Sur, Bishop Teixeira and other friends and members of the
Alliance for a Secular and Democratic South Asia to discuss solidarity with
Professor Saibaba, Hem, Prashant, Pandu, Vijay, and
all who are persecuted for their commitment to truth and justice.
