Mangalore: Naxals Issue Stern Warning to BJP, Sangh Parivar

Mangalore, Sep 24: The coastal area committee of the Communist Party of India (Maoist) has warned that it will deal with some BJP and Sangh Parivar leaders of the state on the same lines as with Vishwa Hindu Parishat leader from Orissa Lakshamananda Saraswati, if attacks on minorities continue in the state.

In a press statement, coastal area committee leader Kamala has criticized the attacks launched on churches in the state, in strong words. If the attacks are not stopped immediately, the party will initiate actions against the communal leaders like ministers Dr V S Acharya and Krishna Palemar, MLAs C T Ravi and Jeevaraj besides Bajrangdal state convener Mahendra Kumar and other leaders, the statement claimed.

She has also requested the general public, minorities and pro-democracy activists to strongly condemn the attacks being launched against the minorities in the state as also the fascist rule of the BJP government, which has been masterminding such attacks and to concertedly fight against communalism.

The attacks on Christians were organized at a time the people of the district were yet to fully recover from the shock of communal disturbances that rocked the coastal districts two years back, she has stated.

Bajrang Dal involved in Karna communal violence: Home Ministry

New Delhi, Sept 25 (PTI) Bajrang Dal elements were allegedly involved in communal violence in Karnataka and the state government must apply stringent laws against those who were involved in it, the Union Home Ministry said here today.
There was a "sense of uneasiness" in Karnataka and Christian community was "visibly upset and unhappy" over the recent communal violence there, Special Secretary (Internal Security) in the Ministry M L Kumawat said here.

"Alleged Bajrang Dal elements were involved in vandalising churches, prayer halls and schools," he said after camping in the violence-hit areas of the state for two days.

Kumawat said the two-member Central team, including Joint Secretary (Human Rights) A K Yadav, found that violent protests on September 15 following the desecration of churches in Mangalore made the cops, who were mostly fresh recruits, impatient.

He said irked by stone pelting mob, these young policemen entered the Churches, prayer halls and beaten old, women and young alike which resulted in discontentment.

"The community members told us that the administration was partial and bias and even demanded that Dakhina Kanada (Mangalore) district Superintendent of Police Satish Kumar be transferred," he said.

Kumawat said they found that out of the four posts of Deputy Superintendent of Police in Mangalore, three were lying vacant.

"All the violence-hit areas were known to be sensitive. The administration could have handled the situation in a more matured manner by deploying seasoned policemen," he said.

He said the team would submit its report within a day or two. PTI
