Mangaluru: Organizations, leaders condemn police action on PFI protestors


Daijiworld Media Network - Mangaluru (SP)

Mangaluru, Apr 5: Addressing a press conference at the office of the party in the city on the evening of Tuesday April 4, SDPI Dakshina Kannada district president, Haneef Khan, stated that the protest held in front of the office of the city police commissioner condemning police atrocities on a person named Ahmed Qureshi was peaceful. He stressed that the police had resorted to caning the protesters, and that the protesters had not attacked the police as claimed.

"Our activists have neither attacked any police personnel or officials, nor have we pelted stones. I ask the police to check the footage of CCTV cameras installed in the area where police commissioner's office is located. This will bring out the truth," he said.

He accused city police commissioner of 'falsely' claiming that the protesters had attacked the police, in order to protect police who had tortured an innocent person till one of his kidneys failed. He informed that over 65 protesters had suffered injuries and five of them were admitted as inpatients in hospitals, having suffered serious injuries. He also urged the police to release all the injured Muslim leaders and activists immediately, and accused Congress of having a hand in the caning of the crowd.


SDPI press meet

SDPI Udupi district unit has planned protest opposite clock tower there at 5 pm on April 5 condemning inhuman attack on people protesting against police excesses at Mangaluru.

Dalit Sangharsh Samiti district organizing convener, M Koosappa, termed as demonic the torturing of a youth till one of his kidneys stopped functioning, and using of batons against protesters. He demanded for the dismissal of police commissioner, Chandra Sekhar, holding him responsible for this incident. He requested district in-charge minister to act in this direction.

Some other organizations including Jamaat-E-Islam-E-Hind have condemned police atrocities and criticized the lathi charge on protesters.

Through a release, police department said that the police had not tortured the arrested accused, Ahmed Qureshi, as alleged and termed allegations in this connection as false. They have referred to the statement made by Qureshi in the court and also medical test report of the hospital. They stated that Qureshi had said in court that he was not subjected to torture, and medical test report does not mention about police atrocity, adding that he is in judicial custody not police custody.

Additional director general of police, Alok Mohan, speaking at Kundapur, said that the protesters at Mangaluru had not obtained prior permission and that they resisted attempt made by the polie to send them away. Therefore, police were forced to use batons, he clarified.

In the meanwhile, Vishwa Hindu Parishad and Bajrang Dal have condemned PFI activists for attacking police personnel and pelting stones at police vehicles and office. Sharan Pumpwell has demanded to place a ban PFI and to hand over investigation relating to the organization to National Investigation Agency because of incidents happening here which resemble the situation in Kashmir.

Former city mayor and president of Union of Dakshina Kannada Muslim Organizations, K Ashraf, has come down heavily on police for gagging the voice of Muslims seeking justice. He criticized city police commissioner, Chandra Sekhar, for using brute force against the accused, keeping people in illegal confinement and then making a garland of lies in front of the public through press conferences.

"As part of such a conspiracy, the police launched murderous attack on protesters belonging to Muslim organizations who were seeking justice, and then the police themselves got admitted into hospital. We will soon organize a huge protest against inhuman ways of the police and an official release will be issued shortly. I request Muslims to join hands with us in our efforts to lend support to the voice of the community," he said in a statement.

The city police, meanwhile, claimed that contrary to allegations, the youth Ahmed Qureshi was not tortured or harassed in police custody, and that he has given a statement in court saying that he was under no pressure from the police.

    Ban all Muslim organisation and take action on Ashraf. In Pakistan,the Police would have fired if Hindus had to protest attacking the police. India is a secular country and we deal the situation in a democratic way. Being secular we have to pay a price quietly which our forefathers did not realise when our constitution built on secular values. When our neighbouring countries declare themself Islamic countries and our ruling leaders did not utter a single word. Secular word sounds good to ears but (destructive) some anti nationals never get satisfied and bound to destroy the peace in the country on the basis of religion.
    West and Australia realised quite late but they can tackle them efficiently. But we are not alone in fight against this evil force.

    All the SDPI and PFI members; you have all the right to protest in a democratic system in a democratic way with proper permission from the Authorities but not to indulge in violence, and attacking police, that too Police Commissioners Office. The ACP Mr. Udaya Kumar, Mr Belliappa, and Shruthi who were injured in the protest by these your goons. Shame on you all.

    Why do not you try you luck in attacking police personnel in any part of the world and you will pay for the consequences of it. Democracy does not mean that you can attack but all your rights are subject to Reasonable Restrictions. You can not do anything and everything as you like in a democratic system.You are all lucky that you all live in Mangalore and India. Sometime back a few monthos ago, a Muslim boy attacked the Principal of Milagress College , Mangalore and now you know the consequences of it. Now you know what happens when the Police Force is attacked.

    Do do not cry like babies when you have done wrong. Respect the law of the land and live in peacefully. This is democracy. Jai Hind.

    It means all those protest held before in Mangalore city by fanatic organisations like Bajrang Dal, Ram Sena, ABVP, VHP and RSS are approved by the law enforcement authority?

    So law enforcement authority acknowledge that they had taken the undertaking from those organisation for peaceful protest and held responsible for its organisers for any untoward incidents?

    I seriously doubt the clarification of this officer. Does our local media has any evidence to prove who started fire?

    Each passing day 'Cobra post' sting operation proves to be more evident. If this city needs to be smart city of the future law enforcement department need urgent shuffling. It should be represented by honest officers from all religions equally. There should be proper auditing of the efficiency.No local appointment in the department which can directly influence the accused.

    Protest is the democratic right of every citizen of India. I would rather blame ruling Congress Home Ministry for the present condition which has some kind of secret deal with BJP in this coastal city.

    From the beginning SDPI agenda was to defeat the Congress, what's new in that. How many muslims supported PFI on yesterday's incident? This organization is pushing the innocent muslim youths to engage in rowdism and making them to land in jails. Their leaders are safe and busy with Press conferences. First follow the law and don't do the violence. Everybody will support you. But no muslim will support for arrogance and goondaism. Stop forcing muslim youths to do the crimes for your organization.

    The intention of the gathering of goons in front of commissioner's office was definitely not protest. It was just to show their strength .

    The police have done a good job. They were doing their job promptly, without even bothering the fact that they are caning the most appeased community of the present government in the state.
