Members of the Popular Front of India (PFI) organised protest condemning governments decision which prevented PFI from organising Freedom Parade in Mysore on Sunday.

Addressing protesters in front of the DC Office here, PFI Mangalore Zone secretary Mohammed Saifulla said that the government has snatched the Constitutional right of the citizens by denying permission for Freedom Parade. PFI has been celebrating the Independence Day in a well disciplined manner every year. The Independence Day celebration organised in Mangalore in the previous year stood testimony to its discipline that it was appreciated by all, he added.

PFI had plans to organise Freedom Parades in Mysore, Tanjore of Tamilnadu, Idukki and Kannur in Kerala. However, only Karnataka government denied permission to organise programme at Mysore, Saifulla said.

“PFI had sought permission from the Police Commissioner of Mysore for the programme. However, it was denied on security grounds. Similarly, permission was not granted even when PFI requested the authority to change the venue to Tumkur or Hassan,” he added.
A memorandum submitted to the DGP Ajay Kumar Singh was also rejected by him, Saifulla said and charged that the government’s action was undemocratic.

PFI State Secretary Iliyas Mohammed Thumbe, members Mohammed Ashraf, Bakrabail Suresh Bhat and Mehfooz were present.
