The lone crusader against witch-hunting in Assam denied visa from Embassy.


Guwahati/ 22nd September’2017 (Prag News Desk): In an unfortunate turn of events, Birubala Rabha, the lone crusader against “witch-hunting” is denied Visa to visit to Geneva and attend the UN Human Rights Council and speak on Witch Hunting and Human Rights Violation.

She was informed on 19th September, it is very disappointing as Rabha is fighting a lone war against innumerous odds. After being invited by the United Nations on 13th April to speak about the scenario at the Witchcraft and Human Rights Experts Workshop at the UN Human Rights Council in Geneva, Switzerland, that was scheduled on 21, 22 and 23 September. Mission Birubala was given the responsibility for the entire affair including the visa procurement and co-ordination with the representatives of the United Nations but due to the negligence of the Distirct Administration but, her visa was declined from the Swiss Embassy. It was further disapproving as the Embassy denied her request to deliver a video conference.
