Daijiworld Media Network - Kasargod

Kasargod, Mar 8: Taking swift action, the police on Thursday March 8 arrested the man who allegedly defaced the statue of Mahatma Gandhi near Taliparamba in Kannur.

The accused has been identified as Dinesh (42), a resident of Pariyaram, Pallikunnu.

Police said that Dinesh is a BJP worker. Locals said that he had been suffering from mental illness and was under treatment for two months. Police are questioning him.

Dinesh allegedly climbed the pedestal of the statue located in front of the taluk office in Taliparamba and damaged the spectacles and ripped away the garland. People who were around clicked his photos. The police conducted investigations on the basis of CCTV footage near the taluk office and arrested the culprit.

The statue had been unveiled in 2005. Several political parties have expressed concerns regarding the incident. The statues of Lenin in Tripura and Periyar in Tamil Nadu have been destroyed in the recent days. The statue of Dr Ambedkar in Meerut, Uttar Pradesh was damaged three days ago. The defacing of the statue of Mahatma Gandhi now has caused widespread anguish.

    The vandalism of Lenin statue in Tripura , Periyar statue in Tamil Nadu and Gandhi statues in Karnataka by the BJP is a foretaste of what is in store for India on the day the BJP rules India unopposed. Lenin statue represents the Communist movement, Periyar represents the Dravidian movement and Gandhi represents the Congress movement. BJP members destruction and vandalism of statues representing opposing ideologies is a warning of the intolerance that Indians can expect in an India in which there is no opposition to the BJP.

    What is the use of getting freedom from the British, it would have been better under the British rule. Though we have got freedom from the British and enjoying the freedom still we are not respecting the father of our nation. It was Mahatma Gandhi who helped us to be free from the foreign rule. Now the right wing citizens taking advantage of the freedom.

    Better for BJP to have a mandate for all new members to get a thorough mental checkup done.

    Those of you who do not have respect for Mahatma Gandhiji, cannot have respect towards your own ancestors too. Because, if not our parents, at-least our grand parents have contributed towards freedom fight, in some way or the other. By desecrating the image of Gandhiji, you guys are desecrating your own grand parents' image.

    If you feel Gandhiji did least to attain independence, go prove your strength and patriotism. Fight on the border with enemy force, you will know the value of independence ! Its better than eating the fruits of their labour for free !

    It is a pity and a shame that a indian nationalist tried to defacement of our Mahathma Gandhi.When one uneducated person ,or a psychiatric one can understand.Here everyone knows that Mahathma Gandhi was a freedom fighter ,his part in getting in independence to India was enorm and beginning and end was.why should we make ourselves fools? by destroying his statue?or is it a matter of future voting?to defame congress?Hope Soul of Gandhi will forgive him and bring him to the right path.

    Believe me this BJP is destroying the country. They are Godsay supporters. They are so bold now and damaging Mahatma ‘s statue. Next they will destroy everything they don’t like or goes with their 16th century dogma. We have clear examples of this in coastal districts and rest of Karnataka. They used Muthalik and Togadia to win last election to get Hindu votes and have kicked them out now Togadia says that he is frightened for his life. They have use and discard policy. They are not for any religion but for themselves and for looting the country. Look at the people who have recently escaped from the country after looting it. Now. another BJP business man is. Under scan for crores and crores of rupees scam with loans. They have not created any employment but have created communal violence all over the country. They promised to build Ram Mandir at last election and VHP even collected money for bricks and what have done in last 4 years?. The list goes on and on. Please think carefully and don’t let this party to con you.
