Hanuma Jayanti row: peace march taken out in Hunsur

In a view to promote peace and harmony in Hunsur town, where violence erupted during Hanuma Jayanti celebrations on December 3, members of various organisations took out a peace march on Monday.

More than 350 members, who gathered near Kalpatharu Circle, holding placards displaying messages about peace and harmony, took out a silent march, on the major streets of Hunsur, which is considered as communal sensitive area. Farmer leaders, Dalits, political party activists, and writers took part in the rally.

A public convention, which scheduled to be held on the Municipal grounds, was shifted to the Assistant Commissioner's office premises, as the taluk administration denied permission.

The leaders, including writer K S Bhagwan, lamented over MP Pratap Simha for his alleged lapses during the jayanti celebrations. Being an MP, Simha has failed to behave as per the Constitution. He is behaving like a representative of a particular community and is provoking communal violence, they alleged.

Hanuma Jayanti was a Sangha Parivar sponsored programme. In the name of jayanti, the organisers are hurting the sentiments of the people for the last two years. The BJP is provoking communal violence for political benefits, the members alleged.
