Mangaluru, Dec 20, 2014: Sri Rama Sene Chief Pramod Muthalik has slammed the State Congress Government for re-opening the pub attack case.
Speaking to reporters after appearing before the Second JMF Court here on December 20, Saturday in connection with the case, Muthalik said the re-opening of the case revealed the anti-Hindu stance of the government. “Another Anti-Hindu policy of the government has been revealed with its re-opening of the 2008 church attack case by rejecting the Somasekhara Commission Report,” Muthalik said.
Stating that the Congress was rejected by the people in the previous Parliamentary polls owing to its policy of appeasing minorities, Muthalik said however the Congress party in the state has not learnt a lesson from the party’s debacle at the Centre.
When questioned about the mass conversions in Agra, Muthalik retorted and questioned why no such controversy crops up when Hindus are converted by Muslims and Christians.
“In Karnataka around 1700 people were converted to Hinduism by the Sri Rama Sene in the past ten years. However controversies spark when large number of people are converted at one go,” Muthalik further observed.
He alleged that Congress President Sonia Gandhi had backed Christians by extending various facilities to them during the past ten years of Congress rule. Muthalik claimed that the Sri Rama Sene had records to prove the same.
Muthalik also kicked off a controversy on this occasion by stating “Nathuram Godse was equally patriotic as Mahatma Gandhi,” and thus endorsed the statement made by BJP MP Sakshi Maharaj which had created an uproar recently.
The hearing in the pub attack case has been adjourned to January 27, 2015.
