Citizens for Peace has long admired Teesta Setalvad and Javed Anand's

tireless work for communal harmony. Over the last twelve years both

Teesta and Javed have been at the fore-front of a sustained legal effort

to ensure that the perpetrators of communal violence in Gujarat in 2002

are brought before the courts and justice is done.

Citizens for Peace joins law abiding citizens across India in calling upon

the judiciary and bureaucracy to ensure that Teesta and Javed's democratic

rights are protected and that they are not burdened by false cases."
