Veteran journalist Shri Rambahadur Rai will preside over the conclave. With a distinguished career in journalism and firsthand experience of the Emergency period, Shri Rai will offer a unique and authoritative perspective on Emergency period.

Professor Jasim Mohammad,  Chairman of Centre for Narendra Modi Studies stated, “The conference aims to address the curiosity and questions of the youth of India who want to know more about the Emergency and its impact on the nation. Many young people wonder whether the Emergency was justified and necessary, and what lessons can be learned from it. The conference will provide the youth an opportunity to hear from the experts and the eyewitnesses, and to engage in a dialogue with them. The conference will also showcase the stories of courage and resilience of the ordinary citizens, who fought for their rights and dignity during the Emergency. The conference hopes to inspire the youth to value and protect the democratic ethos and culture of India.”

The conference will revisit the events that unfolded during the 21-month Emergency, which saw a suspension of civil liberties, a crackdown on opposition leaders, censorship of the press, and a mass sterilization campaign. 

Jasim Mohammad said that the Centre for Narendra Modi Studies will organize conferences, workshop, seminars, and symposiums on the theme “Dark Emergency” throughout the year 2024-2025 in schools, colleges, and universities. However, this international conclave serves as the inaugural program for these educational initiatives.

Convener of Conclave Prof Mohammad also informed about Centre for Narendra Modi’s upcoming publication related to the conclave’s theme. “NaMo Kendra will soon release a souvenir that collects anecdotes and personal accounts from the Emergency period,” he said. “This publication aims to preserve and share the experiences of those who lived through those challenging times, providing a valuable resource for future generations to understand the impact of the Emergency on India’s democratic fabric.”
