University Teachers Forum Hyderabad Condemns the Raid at Prof Satyanarayana’s House
Published Date: 12/09/2018 (Wednesday)

The following is a statement signed by 143 teachers of Hyderabad, released by the University Teachers’ Forum Hyderabad, condemning the police raid at the residence of Prof K. Satyanarayana recently.

We university teachers of Hyderabad hereby strongly register our protest against the arbitrary, ill-mannered raid on the residence of Dr. K. Satyanarayana, Professor of Cultural Studies and Dean of the School of Interdisciplinary Studies at the EFL University on 28 August 2018.

Early in the morning of 28 August, a police team from Maharashtra accompanied by some Telangana policemen and women, forced themselves into the apartment residence of Prof. Satyanarayana and his wife Pavana without showing them any authorizing document and proceeded to ransack and vandalise the entire flat for over eight hours.

The document that they eventually produced authorized the search ostensibly to find Mr. Varavara Rao, who had already been house-arrested at his own flat by another team. There was no mention of any charges against Prof. Satyanarayana himself. In violation of all rules and conventions, this document was in Marathi, was never presented at the time of entering the residence, and no explanation was offered as to the purpose of their raid. The team left having turned the entire flat upside down taking with them three laptops, a tablet and hard drive apart from some books and papers. Prof. Satyanarayana’s accumulation of research done over 30 years is now in danger of being completely destroyed.

An internationally renowned scholar of Cultural Studies and a pioneering author and editor in the field of Dalit Studies, Satyanarayana co-edited the two-volume anthology of New Dalit Writings from South India: No Alphabet in Sight (vol 1) and Steel Nibs are Sprouting (vol 2), Exercises of Freedom, as well as the volume of Dalit Studies, the first effort of its kind.

He has been a Dalit scholar and has devoted his entire time as an academic to the pursuit of knowledge and research into issues affecting dalits.

Dr. Anand Teltumbde is a senior professor at Goa Institute of Management and also one of India’s most active social science researchers writing on dalit issues. He has published several articles and books including Republic of Caste: Thinking Equality in the Time of Neoliberal Hindutva and has been a regular and popular contributor to the EPW on various topics.

The raids on the residences of these two scholars, along with other activists and lawyers across India, suggest a pattern of targeting anyone associated with dalits, women and other marginalized sections, in order to silence all opposition.

We condemn these raids and demand that the materials taken away after the raids be returned to the respective scholars.

We appeal to liberal and democratic forces to exercise vigilance against illiberal regimes whose actions are destructive of the very fabric of our democracy.
