Shobana, a college student of Chennai was attempted to be molested by some Moslem youth in the Muthiyalpet (Broadway) area of Chennai on the night of 23.2.14. When her brother and mother subsequently questioned this behaviour, they not only misbehaved with them and used filthy language, but also indulged in murderous assault on them. The brother is now admitted in Stanley Government Hospital.
When the family went to the police station to lodge a complaint, Moslems belonging to Muslim Munnetra Kazahagam, Manithaneya Makkal Katchi and Towheeth Jamaath threatened to kill the family in the very presence of the Inspector of the station. When Shri. Ilangovan, office bearer of Hindu Munnani went to the station in support of the affected Hindus, fundamentalist Moslems attacked him outside the police station itself.
Protesting against such acts of terrorism indulged by the Moslems and the callous attitude of the police department, a Bandh was called for on 25.2.14 in Broadway, Muthiyalpet, Sowcarpet areas of Chennai. Hindu Munnani activists organized protest demonstrations on 25.2.14 protesting the atrocities and attacks against the Hindus . More than 5000 men and women participated in this protest demonstration and raised slogans against terrorism and the atrocious attitude of the police. Police arrested those who participated in the demonstration and released them subsequently.
Presiding over the protest demonstration, the Founder President of Hindu Munnani Shri. Ramagopalan in his address stated thus:
//"The killing of Ravana and his ilk was the result of an atrocity committed on a woman Sita, thus was born Ramayana, Mahabaratha is the history of opposition to the atrocity committed on Draupadi. Today, another atrocity has taken place at Mannadi. Moslem organizations have dared to molest and degrade a woman, which is outright despicable. We condemn those Moslem organizations who have aided and abetted in this criminal act. Police department must conduct the investigation justly and if those who indulged in the criminal act are punished sternly, a fear would be instilled in the minds of people indulging in such acts and it may stop further acts of transgressions in future.
It is of little importance whether the woman who has been wronged belongs to a particular state, speaks a particular language and so on. Hindi, Malayalam, Telegu, Bihari, Punjabi - she may belong to any state and speak any language, all are Hindus. Injustice has been done to a Hindu woman and we are holding this demonstration seeking justice for her. Through this protest demonstration, we call upon Tamilnadu Government to render speedy justice", he said.//
Vedic Science Research Centre acknowledges with gratitude the services rendered by Shri. Pasuthaai Ganesan and Shri. Srinivasan, who gathered the news and photographs from the field.
Vedic Science Research Centre too places on record its strong protest against the injustice meted out to the lady. Murderous attacks of Moslems against Hindus are of late becoming a matter of routine. We demand that the government and the police realize the seriousness of the situation and protect the lives, dignity and possessions of innocent Hindus.
