Six activists of the right- wing Sri Ram
Sene, who had planned to spark
communal violence in the north Karnataka
town of Sindhagi by hoisting the Pakistani
flag on the mini Vidhan Soudha premises,
are now lodged behind bars.
Interestingly, all the accused had staged
demonstrations in the town the very
next day to protest the delay in
arresting those responsible for the
reprehensible act. They also tried to
manhandle Bijapur district SP D. C.
Rajappa and other officers when they
visited the spot.
Four days after the incident, the police
on Thursday arrested the Sene activists
on the charges of fomenting communal
disharmony. The police said Rakesh
Siddaramiah Mutt (19, Anil Kumar (18),
Parashuram Ashok (20, Rohit Eshwar
(18, Sunil Madiwalappa (18) and
Mallanagouda Vijaykumar (18)- all
members of Sene's youth wing were
responsible for the flag- hoisting
incident.
The police are on the lookout for
absconding accused Arun Vaghmore
(20).
"Rakesh is the Sindhagi unit president of
Sene's student wing and the other
accused are its members. They are all
students in various colleges of Sindhagi
and Bijapur. Their aim was to create
communal unrest and gain advantage
for their campaign," Rajappa said.
Sene chief Pramod Muthalik termed the
charges "baseless" and alleged that the
police were foisting a false case on his
outfit's members. But Rajappa said:
"The accused have confessed...They
were planning to shift base to Goa for a
few days by mid- January. They had
stitched the Pakistani flag at an
accomplice's house in
Sindhagi.Investigations are on to find
out if other Sene leaders are involved."
He said the accused conspired for a
week before hoisting the flag on the
night of December 31.
They returned the following morning
and staged their demonstration, pelting
stones at a government- owned bus.
"Their motive was clear: hoist the flag,
create unrest and take mileage by
protesting against the incident," Rajappa
said.
The clue cracking the case came from
an eyewitness, who had seen the
activists hoisting the flag around 3.30
am.
Rajappa said the witness later identified
one of the accused, who then spilled
the beans.
But former CM H. D. Kumaraswamy
gave a different version of the incident.
"I am told the RSS was behind the
incident. It is shameful that the BJP is
trying to create communal unrest for
political gains," he said. However,
neither the BJP nor the RSS reacted to
the allegation.

Utter scumbags. Good they are arrested and where they belong-behind bars. All those, on all sides, reponsible for this mess need to be dealt with. Nuts like them have no right to be allowed to spread their hateful messages.

old news but I thought it's better to spread awareness about this activity. it will make you think twice before you react against something similar in future.

Awareness was already spread and discussed here..no need to spread it again and again. Anyways this is what I got from wiki page on Sri Ram Sena

To distance themselves from the Sri Ram Sena group, the RSS called for stringent action against the group, and said that they would have no objections should the government ban them.[7]

One of things which has raised suspicion on the main motive of this group is the timing of their activities as most of their activities were during elections. Their activities have created a scare against Hindu extremism which has helped Congress. Ram Sena also became active during Anna Hazare movement which helped Congress as it took away attention from the core issue of the anti corruption issue. So, there have been speculations that they are being sponsored by Congress.

Nobody is above suspicion.

I know I know. The news again 'surfaced' now (not just here, but also in some other forums) just to create that much needed equal-equal after the saffroni groups and the extremists among them did not get carried away and have desisted from any retaliation to the recent violence.

Saffron groups are the favorite punching bag of liberals & boogeyman of jihadis.

Agnostic_Indian - what is the need for this news now? Are you trying to get even with all the incidents which have happened in the past 1 week? Or what are you trying to show here?


Forget about Mumbai for a moment. In UP, it was very clear a Maulvi instigated the violence. So any rational person can comprehend and see through all the conspiracy theories and rumours.
