Kalburgi killing a dangerous trend, says Bhagat Singh's relative

The killing of writer M M Kalburgi and rationalist Narendra Dabholkar and the Dadri lynching form a “dangerous” trend, said Abhitej Singh Sandhu (in picture), the grandnephew of freedom martyr Bhagat Singh.

Speaking to reporters on Tuesday, he lamented the youth had become intolerant towards other religions, castes, and anything which was not their ideology.

True freedom still eludes India even 68 years after independence as the youth are not guided well, he said and held the present political developments responsible for the current situation.

On Bhagat Singh, he said, “People don’t know much about him except that he threw a bomb in Parliament during the British Raj and was hanged later. His ideology and struggle for a developed nation should be known,” he said.
