Appeal to celebrate Independence Day

We hereby appeal to the people of Assam and Northeast India to celebrate the Independence Day on 15th August to pay tributes to the patriots and martyrs who suffered and sacrificed their lives for the freedom of the Nation. It is observed that a section of separatist elements in the region have made it a habit to impose a ban on the celebration of both the Independence Day and Republic Day (of India). We must not forget that the immense sacrifice of those martyrs of Northeast who laid down their lives in the Freedom Movement. Because of their supreme sacrifice we are an independent Nation today and we have the moral duty and responsibility to pay tributes to the martyrs and salute the National Tricolour on that very special day. The Journalists’ Forum, Assam (JFA) appeals to people of Assam to celebrate the day and hoist the Tricolour in every house hold and their localities. The journalists and citizens of Guwahati are also welcome to Guwahati Press Club to participate in the flag-hoisting ceremony in it’s premises at 11 in the morning.

Rupam Baruah President, JFA
