Daijiworld Media Network - Kasargod (SP)

Kasargod, Mar 8: The Mahatma Gandhi status at Taliparamba, Kannur, was defaced on Thursday March 8 morning. The statue stands near Taliparamba taluk office.

The spectacle and garland on the statue were found to have been removed and thrown away. An attempt was also made to destroy the statue by repeatedly hitting it with some hard object. Eyewitnesses said that the incident happened at around 8.30 am.

Statues are being destroyed or damaged now at various places including Tripura and Tamil Nadu. People have been protesting against the attempt to demolish this statue. The police have taken precautionary measures immediately after the incident came to light, towards monitoring and maintaining law and order situation.

    Chaddis say Lenin is a foreigner hence his statue has no place in India. By this type of argument they dream that their Chaddi policy will be implemented by those countries who have installed statues of Gandhiji. Whole world knows these Chaddis have MPs who openly support those who build temple for Terrorist Nathuram Godse.

    I still don't understand why Gandi allowed division of India.
    What was his reasons for dividing India?
    If the reason is "Hindus and Muslims can not live together", then why Muslims are still allowed in India?

    Kannur is a CPI kingdom. No other party there would dare to even unload a truck of their own personal belongings without CPI rep's permission. That too at 8.30AM in the morning broad daylight.

    See the Irony of the situation where the nations are respecting Mr.Gandhi but our own people forgotten him at least to respect his statue.

    This is not attack on a statue its attack on "Mahathma THOUGHTS"

    All the money goes to RICH for the business investment and we invest on LIC insurance, FD which will go indirectly to Industrialist to flourish their business and you will get TENGA.

    GST, LIC, IT returns, Liquor revenue all the unaccounted wealth will go as a Bad DEBT to the BIG BUSINESS People in the country.

    I think its the marxist, leftist goons behind this. Thaliparambu is their bastion. They did this so that BJP and RSS will be blamed for this. CPM/marxist/DYFI/maoist or whatever u call them they are not big fans of Gandhiji. They only like Lenin, Fidel castro, Cheguera and all foreign leftist leaders. This definitely is a handy work of the leftees. If there is a India China war, they will support China, such is their mentality, leave alone a statue for that matter.

    Its wrong to blame any political party for this. Some culprits to create some heat do this kind of acts. Law should tighten their grip and catch hold of these and take stern action, rather than just "condemning with the strongest words". What Oxford dictionary can do ?? Wise should act with firm hand.

    New culture introduced by BJP in Tripura is slowly but steadily spreading.
    Politicians are worried more about their own party and strength rather than
    Uniting the countrymen. Our youth are brainwashed with some politicians.
    The bad impact is clearly exposed now. Statues of Statesperson are coming down one by one. Who created such non-sense in the mind of people? Are we trying to re-write Indian history?
