HJS stage protest opposing Prevention of Communal Violence Bill

Hindu Janjagrati Samiti protestManjeshwar : The members of Hindu Janjagrati Samiti staged a protest at Hosangadi opposing Prevention of Communal and Targeted Violence Bill of Central Government.

Addressing the protesters, HJS Coordinator Mohan Gowda, said that the draft, which was prepared by the National Advisory Council headed by Sonia Gandhi and comprising social activists such as Asgar Ali Engineer and Teesta Settlewad, aims at exploiting the majority Hindus under the guise of protecting minorities.

He also said that the bill has been drafted under the assumption that communal violence is created only by members of majority communities and never by members of minority communities. Accordingly, offences committed by members of majority communities against members of minority communities are punishable, but the same offences committed by minority communities against majority communities are not considered to be offences at all

Prashant Kumble, HJS leader said that if the law came into force, the commission will be formed each district and states in order to award justice and compensation in case of communal violence.
