Re: [rti_india] Re: RTI Activist Amit Jethwa shot dead


Well said Tariq. And there is as such no allegation on him just a few rumors doing rounds. Amit came from a humble background and has without doubt lost his life in fighting an environmental issue.

Dear All

I, for one, must declare I do not understand all this. Is there some allegation against Amit Jethwa? What is all this talk as if some procedure is already adopted, a trial. No! the point is that some information is obtained through RTI so are we to use it as a decoration piece in our drawing rooms. The RTI was introduced with the explicit purpose of falling under Article 19 of the Constitution of India where freedom of expression is provided. In other words, the RTI supplements the freedom of expression. The views expressed here is that if after obtaining information the information is used to express oneself somewhere the repercussions are not to be concerned with. The package is being severed.

It is unfortunate that an RTI activist is murdered and we should be concerned.

Let me repeat again. Please do not mix up RTI Activism with filing
writ petion and staging an one man army attack on individulas with the
information gained through RTI. Anyone including you and me won't like
if someone make personal attacks on us with the help of judiciary. Had
he not used RTI also he would have met with the same fate for his
attack on individual. Will anyone kill a person just because he sought
an inconvenient information ? RTI Activism has nothing to do with
the activities like blackmailing someone with the information.gained.
