Amulya Leona's house in Chikkamagaluru attacked by alleged BJP supporters

Daijiworld Media Network - Chikkamagaluru (SHP)
Chikkamagaluru, Feb 21: Following the controversial statement by the BA student, Amulya Leona at a public programme in Bengaluru alleged Bharatiya Janata Party supporters threw stones at her father’s house in Gullagadde near Koppa on Thursday night.
Amulya Leona’s father Wazi said that the incident, left their window panes and doors damaged. The attack reportedly took place at around 7.30 pm. “They are all BJP supporters. They were in a group. I have complained to the police with the names of a few who led the group,” Wazi said.
Three policemen have been deployed at his house since Thursday night.
Amulya Leona was charged with sedition after she raised pro-Pakistan slogans at a protest against the Citizenship (Amendment) Act in Bengaluru.
Wazi, who owns a two-acre areca plantation and runs a poultry farm, has expressed his disappointment in his daughter for making such statements. He also asserted that he would not make any attempts to bail her out of jail. “Let the law take its course. I cannot approve of her statement,” he added.
He maintained that he had constantly warned his daughter against participation in protests. “I told her to complete studies first and later she could fight for poor people. But what she said yesterday is not acceptable. I do not know what made her so. I hope a probe would bring out who prompted her to make such statements,” he said.
Wazi said he has been politically active for several years, and had earlier worked for former education minister HG Govinde Gowda. He then shifted to the BJP and worked in support of DN Jeevaraj, who represented Sringeri constituency last time, and current Udupi-Chickmagaluru MP Shobha Karandlaje. “I have worked for the BJP in the past. As Govinde Gowda’s son contested on JD(S) ticket for Sringeri seat, I supported him”, he commented.
Meanwhile, a video clip that went viral on Thursday night showed a group of Bajrang Dal activists compelling Wazi to shout ‘Bharat Mata ki Jai’. “I have no hesitation in raising ‘Bharat Mata Ki Jai’ slogans,” Wazi said, adding that his statement was taken forcibly. “I am a patriot. Many writers, activists and politicians have come to my place over the years,” he added.

    Vandalising homes is an act of a coward and an anti national. They should allow law to take its course. Mere sloganeering doesn't make a citizen anti national. Even Kejriwal was branded a terrorist none other than the Home Minister and got a soundest slap from the electorate.

    She wanted to say something after the phrase Pakistan Zindabad to justify her point but people interrupted her. I don't think she is an anti-national or pro-Pakistan. I hope she will be getting a due process of law.

    On the positive side, I admire her courage at this young age.

    No goons can take law in hand.
    Punish them or behead them in public to instill the fear of LAW
