Mangalore: The Karnataka Komu Souharda Vedike (KKSV) in a press meet held at Hotel Woodlands on Tuesday July 3, strongly condemned the recent incident that occurred in Kalladka.
They observed that there has been no end to the communal clashes in the undivided Dakshina Kannada district. The minorities have to survive in the environment of fear and terror.
This is quite evident in the recent incidents reported at the Holyhill, Jeppu, Kalladka, Kottara by the so called "Religion Protectors", "Culture Protectors" and "Cow Protectors" in the organised attack of theirs. The police themselves cannot stand against these wrongdoers.
On Febrauary 10, the KKSV along with other pro-people, pro-progress and pro-human rights groups voiced against the increasing communal clashes in the district and also brought this to notice of the Governor and the President of the National Minorities Commission by requesting them to take strict action against the peace-breakers.
The KKSV has also appealed that the region may be declared as communally sensitive and the Prime Minister's fifteen point agenda be applied to the district. The police too are saffronised is what is believed, as it is evident from the RSS promotion that was seen on their website.
Speaking to Mangalorean.com, People's Union for Civil Liberties P B D'Sa said the moral policing in this region is increasing at an alarming rate. The attacks were isolated before, now they happen in bunches. Commenting on the police he said "A lot of policemen are either saffronised or are scared to take action against the goons who are pro-RSS". The situation is deteriorating as days pass.
The police are hand in gloves with the saffronised state administration he alleged. He said "The police have cleaned up the place before an investigation could take place, at the spot of the Holy Hill attack,and also they have acted the same way previously in 2008 during the church attacks"
