The incidents in Mangalore has to viewed in different angles to find out the root cause. There is lot of concern amongst the people of Mangalore regarding the ill-gotten wealth of a particular section of the society through counterfeiting/ Hawala/Narcotics trade & other illegal Antinational Activities supported from across the border. The money thus accumulated by these people is spent lavishly on purchasing land which is strategically located & useful for their criminal activities, corrupting the people, funding politicians favorable to them, coercion by taking undue advantage of people to fulfill their needs, exploiting Women in distress & or poor financial status of this sensitive coastal part of the country. It is not surprising that there is an undercurrent of anger amongst a large section of people in & around Mangalore against it. As these criminal & antinational activities go unchecked, people support some Sena or Dal. This is evident by the fact that a large number of people including Women gathered to welcome & garland the people who were involved in the Pub incident when they were released. Instead of finding the root cause & addressing it, the symptoms are viewed as antisocial & sensationalized. Sending politically motivated commissions will be of no use. Another delegation of Women's commission was sent to Mangalore because the first one did not give a favorable report to be used against political opponents during the forthcoming general elections. When a commission or Political delegations of various political parties visits a town one by one the Administration & Police accompany the commission/delegation stretching the already overstretched police force, thus diverting the attention from the important real issues in these troubled times of terror from across the border.The message to the media is Dont aggravate & blow incidents out of proportion which may even lead to a riot & loss of life.The media hype over these incidences clearly shows that the hype is done to descredit the BJP before the general elections
Dear Dr Acharya,The recent incidents in Mangalore show the stent to which those who cannot stomach the BJP in power can stoop to.Surely,there is a need to nip those who indulge in anti social elements proomptly irrespective of their political affiliations.May I however request you to be careful when giving statements to the media lest you are misrepresented.
There is a sustained campaign against SEZ in Mangalore for quite some time. Many of those involved in anti-SEZ protests are same people now involved in moral policing.There is a link between these sudden eruption of activities tarnishing Mangalore's name. Just yesterday so-called environmentalists claimed Mangalore will become another "Bhopal"So what we are seeing in Mangalore are not isolated incidents but a well planned strategy to stop investment in this region.
Some of those arrested for Bangalore blasts are from Kerala Home Minister's constituency. So this whole incident appears to be a ploy by Kerala govt to push that issue under the rug by creating a silly incident in Mangalore.
DrAcharyaThe question is not whether one likes or dislikes pub culture...........the question is one of simple law and order. Can anyone barge into a legally run establishment and beat up people? Can one go around publicly stating that one is entitled to take the law into one's own hands? Is this not a flagrant violation of the Indian constitution and therefore contempt of India and its culture?
