HASSAN: A large number of activists of the Students’ Federation of India (SFI) took out a procession here on Tuesday urging the Prime Minister to take stern action against terrorists. They later staged a dharna in front of the Deputy Commissioner’s office. Central Executive Committee Member of SFI M.G. Usha, district SFI president M.G. Pruthvi and Secretary Ravi Sanenahalli led the dharna.
In their memorandum, submitted to the Deputy Commissioner, the activists expressed concern over the increased number of terrorist strikes in the country. India was the largest democracy wherein people from all communities lived in harmony. But, of late, some fundamentalists with vested interests had made the lives of the people miserable.
Terrorist activities were on the rise. Terrorist acts were not limited to particular castes or creeds. They had now crossed the barriers of religion.
They said that in Karnataka, ever since the BJP Government took over, communal forces had intensified their activities. Attacks on churches continued in Orissa. People from other religions cannot live peacefully now in the country.
