Bengaluru: Kumaraswamy, Prakash Raj, other progressive thinkers get death threat


Daijiworld Media Network - Bengaluru (SP)

Bengaluru, Jan 25: A number of persons including Nijagunananda Swamiji of Bailur Math in Belagavi district, most of whom are known for open defiance of traditions and airing of progressive ideas, have reportedly received threats to their lives. It is said that in a letter written by an unidentified person from Davanagere to Nijagunananda Swamiji, the Swamiji has been warned that he would be murdered on January 29.

The letter, it is said, also has threatened to eliminate several persons including former Karnataka chief minister, H D Kumaraswamy and cine actor, Prakash Raj. The others who are in the hit list of the sender of this letter are former Bajrang Dal leader Mahendra Kumar, Nidumamidi Sri Veerabhadra Channamalla Swmiji, actor Chetan Kumar, B T Lalita Nayak, Mahesh Chandra Guru, Prof Bhagwan, former media adviser to the chief minister Dinesh Ameen Mattu, journalist Agni Sridhar and Brinda Karat among others.

The letter was posted from Davanagere. The Swamiji has filed complaint in Jewargi police station. The Swamiji said that he has been engaged in creating rational thinking habit among the people. He felt that the rightist organizations, which are unable to appreciate his good work, have threatened to kill him. He said he will not be cowed down by such threats.

A number of people listed by those who posed the threat are identified with progressive thinkers. Many of them are openly critical of the recent Citizens Amendment Act and National Register of Population. Kumaraswamy and Prakash Raj have been vocally critical of the union government. Therefore many feel that the death threat has emanated out of anger created because of ideological differences.

    "Yellidiyappa (HDK)" and "Kuch bi (Rai and not "Raj")" are progressive thinkers of our society. And these intellectually challenged are getting death threats. Our society really needs intellectual awakening. We definitely need to make a difference between Google/Facebook provided information and true education. What a pity.

    All these religion based serials make people imagine unrealistic stuff leading to superstition. There is a rise in the number of people who believe in irrational stuff. Ban all these telecasts and we will be a rational thinking society

    Threat need to be taken seriously while Supari Killers of Gouri Lankesh, Kalburgi and Dhabolker looks still very much active. Modi govt shedsing crocodile tears over prosecution of minorities in pakistan but here in india not only minorities even majoritarians are not safe.
