‘There is a limit to patience of Hindus’, says K’taka Minister K.S. Eshwarappa
Shivamogga: Karnataka Minister for Rural Development and Panchayati Raj K.S. Eshwarappa on Saturday once again stirred a controversy by stating that there is a limit to patience of Hindus.
After meeting BJP worker Venkatesh at the Meggan hospital, who was attacked by miscreants on Thursday, Eshwarappa said that there is a limit to patience of the Hindu community. If the limits are crossed, it could lead to a real split in the society. “I am saying this as a minister,” he underlined.
“After the murder of Bajrang Dal activist Harsha, the state government has taken necessary measures and arrested all the accused persons. However, the goonda mindset of certain community members has not yet gone,” he stated.
Eshwarappa further said, “our worker Venkatesh had been attacked by goondas of a particular community. Two of them have already been arrested. Because of a few, the image of the whole community is tarnished. Community leaders should initiate action on these persons.”
All people of the community are not bad, only a few goondas are indulging in such activities. The community leaders must give attention to them, he said.
Shivamogga, after seven days of curfew has returned to normal, but the situation became tense after a gang attacked Venkatesh on Thursday. The police are on high alert and is investigating the case.
Hello Ganesh, We need to stop fooling ourselves and blaming it all on politicians. The struggle between ‘two communities’ go back many centuries. Even the rise of Maratha empire and Sikh empire was in response to the same frustrations felt by majority community in post- independence India. I wish Indians had a little bit of historical understanding before commenting on these issues. Unfortunately the current generations have been brainwashed by silly Bollywood movies and the romantic version of historical past. If we don’t learn from history, we are doomed to repeat it.
“If we don’t learn from history, we are doomed to repeat it”
I am really impressed by the above quote from Mr. Pai..
Minister saab, there is no misunderstanding between communities, the politicians create some agenda to cook their food to win in the election. If you stop giving such statements everything will be alright. I did not see the people of other community fight, only the politicians make the youth fight after such statements. So if you want peace in the society, stop politicians from making any statement about particular community.
How is this a controversy? That’s how majority hindus have been feeling for several years now. Why is it that our society always demonizes Hindu community? Well…
