Udupi, July 08, 2017: Speaking at a protest rally organised by various Muslim organizations, led by Solidarity Youth Movement on communal terrorism, thinker and district president of Karnataka Komu Sauharda Vedike G Rajashekhar has challenged Paryaya Pejawar Mutt seer Sri Vishwesha Theertha Swami to quit the leadership of the committee that works on Sri Ram Janmabhoomi and also oppose the idea of Hindu nation for India.
Rajashekhar said that the seer has done a commendable work by organising Iftar party to Muslims. But the seer should not forget that he is even now seen as the leader of Hindu community and he has to get rid of the image he has already developed being part of fanatical movement conceptualised by the hard core Hindu fundamentalists, he urged.
He said that the concept of Hindu nation itself is smeared with the blood as wiping out the minorities and liberal minded people from the country will not be an easy process without bloodshed. Violence in the name of safeguarding the religion has reached greater heights and it has been impossible for the minorities and Dalits to lead a normal life. Every phase of the life of the minorities and Dalits is laced with fear and the food rights are also snatched, he charged.
If the NDA-led BJP government wants to impose Cow Slaughter Ban Act, it should also look into the livelihood source of the poor Hindus who depend on cattle and buffalo skin trade in various capacities.
The banning of cow slaughter will also directly hit these areas of trade with the consumption of meat, he said.
Rajashekhar urged the NDA government to provide justice to the Muslim women to whom injustice was done in Gujarat riots. Later, the government can work on introducing the Uniform Civil Code and fight against triple Talaq, he maintained.
A K Kukkila from Mangaluru said the people enjoying violence are increasing and are searching ways to torture humans in the name of religion.
The prime minister visited Israel and paid homage to Yad Vashem, which is Israel’s official memorial to the victims of the Holocaust. Sadly, the prime minister is not able to visit his own country men’s tomb who are massacred mercilessly in the name of communal differences, he added.
Pejawar seer, who threw the Iftar party to Muslims, should be lauded for his innovative approach. Nevertheless, the seer needs to strongly oppose the fanatics in his religion who are posing a severe threat to the solidarity of the nation, he demanded.
