Book attackers under Goonda Act: Poojary

Book attackers under Goonda Act: Poojary

Former union minister B Janardhan Poojary said that the attack on youth who were celebrating the birthday of one of their friends by the Hindu organisation was nothing but an intelligent method of gang rape. 

Speaking to presspersons here on Sunday, he said Hinduism preaches respecting women and not assaulting women. The attackers accused the students of indulging in immoral activities. They slapped and molested the girls, pushing them around. Is this culture of Hinduism?” he questioned.

He alleged that the attackers outraged the modesty of women. 

Stating that the attack on the youth is an condemnable act, Poojary said all those who were engaged in barbaric and cruel act should be booked under Prevention of Dangerous Activities of Bootleggers, Drug offenders, gamblers, Goondas, immoral traffic offenders and slum grabbers Act 1985 and The Karnataka Control of Organised Crime Act 2000. 

He said “Sangha Parivar members which is a part of the BJP has been engaged in all sorts of attacks and assaults from the beginning. If the State government had taken stringent action against those who were involved in the pub attack in 2009, the city would not have witnessed such an barbaric incident. 

The State government is inactive and the BJP government is supporting such incidents. Home Minister R Ashok is one the weakest ministers. One of the attackers Subhash was involved in pub attack as well,” he said. 

The police should take the issue seriously and take stringent action against the culprits. The incident has clearly shown the failure of the State government.  He said that Sangh Parivar members only speak on respecting women. However, in reality, they are engaged in disrespecting women. 

Bandh flayed

Poojary flayed the bandh call given by the Youth Congress and said that bandh is not allowed as per the law. 

Later, addressing the mediapersons, district Mahila Congress President Mamatha Gatti said that the attack on the students is an condemnable act. The Hindutva preached by Swami Vivekananda makes one respect women. 

“When the state government had organised a rave party at Malpe, why didn’t the BJP Mahila Morcha members stage a protest against the rave party,” she asked. 

She said that Mahila Congress members will submit a memorandum to City Police Commissioner and Deputy Commissioner, urging the authorities to initiate action against the culprits on Monday.
