A massive public meeting will be held in Bangalore on January 19 under the banner of People's Front to condemn the execution of deposed Iraqi president Saddam Hussein, former Union minister and senior Congress leader C K Jaffer Sharief said.
Talking to newsmen in Bangalore on Monday, Sharief said Saddam's hanging was nothing, but a "brutal act committed by United States and its ally Britain."
Sharief said the public meeting would be addressed by like minded parties, including the Left, which had already opposed and demonstrated against the killing.
Left party leaders including Prakash Karat and Sitaram Yechuri will address the meeting.
Samajwadi Party leaders would also attend, he announced.
