  1. There were also comments of rape and threat to her life.-Reports

    Sir, PM Modi is encouraging ‘Selfie with daughter’. The RSS sister organisation Bajrang Dal posting commenting ‘rape of daughter’.

    What a low standard and future for women of ‘smart city’ of India.

    In the past Bajrang Dal co-convener Bhuvith Shetty tweeted welcoming the death of Rationalist thinker slain scholar MM Kalburgi’s and Prof KS Bhagwan will be next in line.

    Mangaluru: Bhuvith Shetty and Achut Arrested in Bantwal Harish Murder Case

    Later Bhuvith Shetty and Achut Arrested in Bantwal Harish Murder Case.This is similar case where law enforcement department symbolic make arrest and release them like celebrity only to found in more criminal activity.

    The political pressure and soft approach of ruling Congress has emboldened saffron fundamentals to no return. During the RSS leaned Late Acharya Home ministry the police department are completely saffronised.The Cobrapost sting operation has exposed where leaders are openly acknowledge the fact.

    It won’t surprise for many of us, if Mangalore will burn like ‘Godhra’ or ‘Muzaffarnagar’, where saffronised police force will be watching like mute spectator. When Dr.Kalladka famous for his hate speeches is welcomed as chief guest for inaugural of Police station and police boycott from office protesting the dismissal of their colleague.

    It is only in Congress ruled Karnataka money for riots main accused in Hubli court yard bomb blast Pramod Muthalik are encouraged by withdrawing cases.

    Karnataka may withdraw cases against Muthalik

    This is the single reason,why there is no end to communal tension in undivided Canara. It is for sure the Congress government will pay the price like debacle in center and Maharashtra.

    I appreciate if mass media come together and strive hard for peace and expose all the activity within the department.

    Vidya Dinkar is not alone.We Kannadigas will protest till Late Kalburgi culprits are not hanged.

    Jai Hind

  2. Dear readers,

    ‘It may have started with Dilwale, but I want all 22 Bajrang Dal goons behind bars’

    We would like the Congress government of Karnataka to come down on these elements like a ton of bricks. We held protests when Rahul Gandhi visited Karnataka. We told him to do something against immoral policing.

    I wouldn’t say there has been rise in such communally charged acts by Hindu fanatics under the Congress, but there hasn’t been any fall either. So obviously, the Congress government has not been doing anything. It doesn’t have the policy, it doesn’t have the idea and it doesn’t have the political will.

    They are going soft on these goons, sometimes even assisting them. This despite the public knowledge that half of Mangalore police force is communal. The state government needs to have a policy for Dakshin Kannada and Mangalore on how to handle this menace. That is what is missing now.

    What’s more, the state government is planning to drop 13 charges including two related to Mangalore against Muthalik. This is ridiculous to say the least. The funniest thing is that Muthalik himself expressed surprise about this. It was too good to believe for him. So, it’s not just the state going soft on goons but actually supporting them. The policy followed by Congress in Karnataka is tantamount to majority appeasement and that’s unfortunate.

    Also check the pictures of Bajrang Dal fanatic with his master Togadia. It is also evident that this guy received weapons training with firearm in his hand.

    I would say this future city is heading for complete chaotic situation and controlled by street goons with blessing of political nexus and police force. The city is sitting over hot coal covered in ash. One kindle is enough to burn it like ‘Godhra’ or ‘Muzaffarnagar’ is not far away.

    The Congress government will pay the price for inaction against the saffron terror due to its soft approach.The BJP remains silent beneficiary of all time.

    Jai Hind

  3. Dear readers,

    Homestay attack case; four accused released on bail

    Bajrang Dal Activist Punit Kottari is the same accused who was booked and released on bail for ‘Home stay attack’.

    It is once again confirms the inability to curb the violence against women in Mangalore district due soft approach of Police force.

    Dawood Ibrahim also grown to mafia lord with petty crimes. Is Mangalore breeding its own saffron terror blessed by law enforcing department?

    Jai Hind
