Mangalore : A forum of Constitutional Movement of the City, met the Deputy Commissioner Dr Chennappa Gowda and submitted a memorandum, by condemning the assault on students at the' Morning Mist Home Stay' by the members of Hindu organization, at the DC's office, here on July 31.
In the memorandum, the forum urged the DC to withdraw the section 144 in the City. Because of the section 144, the public life has been disrupted. The forum also appealed the DC to declare the culprits as criminals and book cases against them under Goonda Act. It is necessary to publish the photographs in the media, so that the public can identify the faces of the culprits.
The heinous crime perpetrated by the goons of fundamentalists in order to put fear in the minds of innocent students, is a malicious and heinous crime which is condemnable. No one has the authority to punish the innocent in the name of culture. The constitutional rights of the citizens to protest the heinous crime is deprived by the Deputy Commissioner by imposing Section 144, in Mangalore which is unlawful and unwarranted.
Prof Rita Noronha, Advocate Lolaksha, P V Mohan, Suresh Shetty, Advocate Stanley R D'Costa, Renny D'Souza, Yusuf Vaktar and other members of the Constitutional movement were present while handing over the memorandum.
