Date 5th September i.e. tomorrow with regards to Gauri Lankesh assassination case, some 400 organizations affiliated to Leftist front have organized the movement under the banner “if we do not rise? A casual glance of the movement makes it clear that it is more aimed at criticizing the government than expressing its outrage at Gauri’s assassination.
The riots in Delhi and Bengaluru are already behind us, and it is clear that the deadly assault on the police and the damage done to Public property is aimed at creating unrest in the society.It is evident, therefore, that the program, scheduled for tomorrow, September 5, 2020, is intended to criticize the Central Government, destabilize the Government and divide the people and create unrest in society. We should remember that Gauri Lankesh was also a sympathizer of Naxalism and had written an article about Saket Rajan, a dangerous Naxal leader. Further their activists have also been arrested for Naxal activities. It is important to note here that Girish Karnad also participated in such agitations in 2018 and also advocated Naxalism calling himself as an ‘Urban Naxal.’
Therefore Such campaigns are a direct and real threat to law and order and permission for such programs should not be given. Hence Nationalists from various Districts such as Bengaluru, Mangalore, Udupi, Vijayapura, Belagavi, Hubballi, Hassan, Mysore and Shivamogga have requested to District Collectors and Police Authorities to take necessary legal action against them.
Members of Hindu Janajagruti Samiti were also present during the meet.
Therefore it is requested that
1. Do not allow such programmes/agitations, also in the backdrop of Corona pandemic.
2. If it is not possible, then kindly issue necessary notices/directions to the organizations/organizer of the agitations.
3. In case agitations are held kindly video graph entire agitation so as to book the culprits at later point of time, if necessary.
4 Legal action should be taken against all those involved in the case.
