Bihar ex-IPS officer returns Police Medal to protest against Khuda Baksh Khan Library’s proposed demolition


In his letter addressed to the President of India, who confers the medal, Das alleged that Bihar CM Nitish Kumar, in connivance with some corrupt contractors and ‘tender mafia’, has decided to raze a portion of the library to the ground.

Pointing out that the library was a heritage building, Das, in his letter also said that the library represented composite Indian culture and its best traditions. Claiming to be a book lover, Das, known for his outspoken nature, has said that the proposed demolition exercise has shocked him beyond description.

Das has also launched a campaign named ‘Har shakhs, Khuda Baksh’ on the pattern of ‘Har Har Modi, Ghar Ghar Modi’.
