So, just yesterday, I was talking about how the entire Mameluk media has gone completely silent about the murders of Gau Raksha activists Prashant Poojary in Mangalore and Sandeep Kataria in Gurgaon.
Well, the plot just got thicker:
“Almost a week after the murder of flower vendor and Bajrang Dal activist Prashant Poojary in Moodbidri, a key eyewitness in the case allegedly committed suicide in a shed in Moodbidri on Thursday October 15.The deceased has been identified as Vaman Poojary (68).”
Now, this really hurts. And it’s impossible not to make comparisons about the relative status of Hindus and Muslims in this country. It’s really tragic that Mohammad Akhlaque was killed in Dadri. I hope that his killers receive the harshest sentences; possibly the death sentence. But the death of Prashant Poojary is equally tragic. And the fact that the entire Mameluk media, civil society, Sahitya Akademi jokers will not spare one moment of outrage for Prashant really hurts. One can live with a group of elites who are hand in glove with certain political parties; every country has that. But this kind of outright denial of rights of Hindus makes me feel like we are subjects living in an occupied country where our lives have no value.
Again, this isn’t Mohammad Akhlaque’s fault. He was an innocent man who was brutally murdered. This is not about him. This is about the subjugation of the Hindu masses by an alien minded, rootless and ruthless elite that sees us as subjects rather than citizens.
Let us read more about who this man who died yesterday:
“Vaman had a tender coconut shop next to Prashant’s shop, and at the time of the latter’s murder on October 9 early morning, Vaman was present at the spot. He was thus considered a key eyewitness in the case.”
Will nobody speak up and even demand an investigation into the death of this eyewitness within a week of the murder? When a stone was thrown at a church in Bandra last year, the national media got on the case. So much concern for one window pane in a church, but no concern for a dead human being?
This hurts. It really does.
