Udupi: Congress Government Behind Killing of Hindus in Violence After Tipu Jayanti – Shobha Karandlaje

Udupi: “Chief Minister Siddaramaiah should be held responsible for the murders following communal incidents in the state,” said Shobha Karandlaje, MP of Udupi-Chikkamangluru LS constituency. She was speaking at a protest organized by the Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) demanding that the government initiate stern action against the alleged killings of Hindus in communal incidents following the celebration of Tipu Jayanti. The protest was organized in front of the Clock Tower here, on November 14.

“The Congress government is promoting rift between communities for political gain. Intolerance is prevailing over the state promoted by the Congress government. Former Home Minister K J George predicted that Kutappa died after he slipped and fell from a compound wall. George seems to be an astrologer who gave the statement on the findings of Kutappa’s death even before the police report was to be filed. The probe initiated has been influenced by Congress ministers,” she alleged.

Hitting hard on the writer and actor Girish Karnad, Shobha said that Karnad was acting like the confidant of the Congress party.” He has insulted Kempegowda saying that he had no role in the freedom struggle and his name was to be replaced with Tipu Sultan’s for the international airport in Bengaluru. The government has awarded Jnanapeet award for a person like Girish Karnad who has no sense and knowledge. Karnad is expressing Siddaramaiah’s thoughts,” she alleged.

The intelligence wing of the state is headed by the Chief Minister and it is expected to report the crucial events haunting the state. But the wing has failed to report the effects of celebrating Tipu Jayanti to the Chief Minister. The government has failed to take security measures in curbing violence after the celebration of Tipu Jayanti, she added.

She further said that the Congress government should justify its role in the killings following the celebrations of Tipu Jayanti. “Goons from Kerala are said to be involved in the killing of Kutappa but the government is silent on the same.”

“CM Siddaramaiah should step down from his post as he is solely responsible for the killings in the state. The government should pay Rs 25 lakh as compensation to Kutappa’s family. If the government still remains adamant towards Hindus and continues pleasing minorities, severe protests will be held in the near future,” she added.

K Raghupati Bhat, former MLA of Udupi constituency, said that Sonia Gandhi is leading a march to the President against intolerance. “She should also sack CM Siddaramaiah for promoting intolerance in the state. The government should not celebrate Tipu Jayanti henceforth as it paves way for communal violence,” he added.

VHP leader Suprasad Shetty said that their organization will not allow Girish Karnad’s plays to be aired in Udupi.

The protesters then blocked the road for 20 minutes and later, with the intervention of the police, dispersed. Tight security was deployed in the city. The bus services from Udupi-Mangaluru, which were stopped in the morning, were later resumed. Many passengers stranded in bus stands managed to commute on KSRTC buses. The district has not reported any violent incidents till afternoon.

  1. Congress Government Behind Killing of Hindus in Violence After Tipu Jayanti – Shobha Karandlaje

    Dear readers,

    Once again cheap politics of polarization from ‘Bhartiya Danga party’. A report compiled by the Union Home Ministry showed that in the first five months of 2015, incidents of communal clashes have risen by almost 25% as compared to the corresponding period of the previous year when the Congress-led UPA-II was in power.

    Incidents of communal violence go up in first six months of 2015


    Not so peaceful after all: In 2015, communal clash deaths in India have spiked by 25 percent

    Incidents of communal violence in the country have gone up in the first six months of 2015 compared to the corresponding period last year, with 330 riots reported till June this year in which 51 people lost their lives.

    According to Home Ministry data, there were 330 incidents of communal violence between January and June, 2015 in comparison to 252 in the first six months of 2014. Altogether 51 people have lost their lives and 1,092 others injured in communal violence so far this year.

    As many as 33 people had lost their lives in first six months of last year. There were 644 riots in the entire 2014 in which 95 people were killed and 1,921 injured.

    Prime Minister Modi earlier told Time that “so far as the government is concerned, there is only one holy book, which is the constitution of India.” In earlier speech Modi who termed the Communal Violence Bill “ill-conceived, poorly drafted and a recipe for disaster” and PM Narendra Modi pitches for 10-year moratorium on violence.

    Is Shoba will dare to ask PM Modi to resign for 25% spike in communal related violence and responsible for the 51 innocents who has lost their lives.Where was Shoba when Dadri to Manipur innocents are dragged and lynched in public?
    The lives of minorities of India lower dignity of life?Are they not citizens of India?Is she follow the merit system of Mohan Bhagwat and RSS Guruji’s second class citizen?

    Shame to such politics over dead souls.She is not capable to hold the position due to dereliction of duty and acting against the constitution of India.

    Jai hind

    This MP should
