Thiruvananthpuram, January 06: Condemning the series of heinous attacks on BJP party workers, Kerala's Hindu Aikya Vedi members took out march and rallies in over 100 locations across the state on Wednesday, demanding strict action against Islamist outfit Popular Front of India (PFI).
During the protest, the member of the orgnisation raised slogans against religious fundamentalism and blamed the police and state government for their alleged passivity of the violent incidents. They demanded the immediate ban of PFI.
The protest and rallies were held in view of the recent political killings of RSS workers. Last month, Bharatiya Janta Party OBC Morcha state secretary Renjith Sreenivasan in Kerala's Alappuzha was allegedly hacked to death at his home. On 19 December, a group allegedly entered his home and hacked him to death. Till now, the police have arrested seven Social Democratic Party of India (SDPI) workers in this case.
Earlier in November, Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) worker Pramuk Sanjith, a native of Elappully, Palakkad in Kerala, was allegedly hacked to death by a group of people in front of his wife. The incident took place on Kinassery near Palakkad-Thrissur National Highway. There were a total of 15 wounds on Sanjith's body. Police have arrested several persons, including an officer bearer of the Popular Front of India (PFI), in the case.
Last year, a Kerala police constable K Anas suspended from his service for liking information about leaders of the RSS and BJP to the SDPI. The cop allegedly had sent contact details of RSS workers to the SDPI activists through WhatsApp.
