  Intimidation, Threats and Harassment

A three day youth conference has been cancelled after Hindutva fundamentalists put pressure on the local administration and the police. The youth conference was being organized from October 20-23, 2014 at the Government Grounds, Jhirmiti, Udaipur for which the permission was sought. When the conference used PA systems for the meetings, the Hindutva fundamentalists objected its use and asked the organizers to seek permission for the same. The SDM denied permission for the use of the PA system after which the organizers decided to continue the meetings without the aid of the PA system. This was again objected by the fundamentalists which led to the cancellation of the event.
