The West Regional unit of the Students Islamic Organization of India (SIO), Karnataka Zone had organized a rally and convention, titled ‘Students Voice for Brotherhood’, at Board High School ground, here at 4.15 pm on Monday October 28.
Suhail K K, national president of SIO, inaugurated the convention.
Suhail noted that polarization of communal activities has been happening in the country in the recent past. “Terrorism can not be a lasting solution for various problems plaguing the country and its people. Nearly 37 percent of our countrymen belong to families living below poverty line, and the union government is expected to take earnest measures to improve their economic conditions. Efficient governance on the part of the people who run the government can alone quell the rising demand for the formation of more states, like in the case of of Telangana and Gorkhaland, demands for which are based on the local culture and the backwardness of these regions,” Suhail said.
Karnataka High Court retired judge, Justice M F Saldana, was the chief guest.
Speaking on the occasion, Justice Saldanha said that the religious centers of minority community are being targetted across Karnataka since September 2008, in connivance with the communal forces, state administration and the police. “Innocent people have become the victims of police atrocities, and the state Governor is also worried over the rising incidents of attacks on worship centers of minority communities. Meanwhile, it is the responsibility of the state administration to put an end to such misadventures of communal forces. Although the minority community has contributed significantly towards educating the countrymen, the state has not been acknowledging their contributions, and has instead been abetting communal disharmony for political gains,” Justice Saldanha added.
“The media is expected to be sensitive while reporting communally sensitive matters, since in its absence, repercussions jeopardizing peace all over the country can occur. Naxals are the outcome of inequality plaguing the society in every sphere of life. Naxalism breeds by the blood of the poor youths, who try to bring equality by force, using weapons. The setting up of Mangalore Special Economic Zone (MSEZ) by forcefully acquiring fertile farmlands of the poor farmers of the coastal region, supported by the district administration and the brutal force of the policemen, has triggered anguish in the minds of the displaced families, which has the potential of causing bloodshed some day,” Justice Saldanha warned.
Mohammed Kunhi, convener of the youth wing of Jamaat-E-Islami Hind, also spoke at the occasion.
Shaukath Ali, state president of SIO – Karnataka zone, delivered the valedictory address.
