'Right wing activists have no permanent icons'

Writer and chairman of Dr Kudmul Ranga Rao Education Institutions Dr Keshava Dharani said people should come out of beliefs which are  forcefully imposed upon them.

He was speaking after inaugurating a study camp and a seminar organised by Manava Bandhuthva Vedike, Karnataka, for its members, at NGO Hall here.

Dharani said it is unfortunate that nobody is questioning such beliefs and are blindly following them. This is the reason why the rituals like Made Snana are still being followed. The ‘rulers’ have been killing the thought process, which can be termed as “intellectual terrorism,” he said.

Delivering the keynote address, Vedike’s division convener K S Sathish Kumar said the Hindu fundamentalists have created a mass hysteria in the country. The Right wing activists have no permanent icons. Their icons changed from Bhagat Singh to Swami Vivekananda and now to Chatrapathi Shivaji, Kumar said.

Govinda Dasa College assistant professor Dr Ashalatha spoke on ‘The Challenges of Protecting Our Constitutional Values Amid the Right Wing Administration.’

Samudaya Karnataka vice-president Vasudev Ucchil presided over the programme. Manava Bandhuthva Vedike state convener Wilfred D’Souza, organising secretary M Devdas, district convener Narayana Kilangodi, Padi director Renni D’Souza and KMC professor M S Kotian were present.
