North Block, New Delhi
22 December 2012
At a time when the entire nation, led by brave Delhi people are protesting at India Gate demanding more security for the citizens and praying for the recovery of the unfortunate girl who fell victim to the animals in human form, it will be unbecoming of me if I continue to have the security cover provided by you in the wake of the death threats I had received from the terrorist organization Indian Mujahideen.
I hereby request you to kindly take back the security cover and provide more security and protection to the common citizens who need it more than us. Today instead of using water cannon and lathi charge on the protesting people, it would have been more appropriate if leaders like you too had sat with them and added government’s voice with the peoples’ anguish committing to end the criminal assaults on the citizens. That would have added to the glory and the integrity of the State power. But your government has used violence against the honest and unprotected people.
I am thankful to those dedicated police jawans who had provided me protection all these years.
Even if I die at the hands of the terrorist in the absence of a security cover, I shall still be without any regrets, as the people on the street, who are our real masters, need this protection more than any politician.
With thanks and regards
