Mangalore Attack:  Take Firm Action


The Polit Bureau of the Communist Party of India (Marxist) issued the following statement on January 27, 2009


After the brazen and criminal attack on young women by the Shri Ram Sene in Mangalore, the BJP state government has not acted firmly in taking action against this Hindu extremist outfit.


It may be recalled that this extremist group was responsible for a series of attacks on churches in Mangalore and targeting Christians in other places. The failure to take firm action in these instances and the efforts to soft-pedal their activities by the home minister then have emboldened the group.


The Polit Bureau demands that all the leaders of the Sene be arrested and immediate steps taken to proscribe the organisationís activities.
