Bangalore, September 9: National Commission for Minorities (NCM) vice-chairman H T Sangliana has strongly condemned the ABVP attack on a Muslim girl at Dr. Shivaram Karanth Government First Grade College, Bellare in Dakshina Kannada district.
Addressing media persons here on Saturday he said that NCM had already shared its concern over the episode with Chief Minister Jagadish Shettar, Deputy Chief Minister R. Ashok, who holds the Home portfolio, and Governor H.R. Bhardwaj.
The former police officer also warned that those indulging in such violence would not get government jobs if their names get into police records for the offences committed.
He sought to remind the youth with a tendency to take the law into their own hands that as per norms, police verification would have to be done to know the antecedents of candidates when they get selected for government service, including civil services.
“If your names are found in police records for indulging in violence the selection for government jobs gets cancelled even if you have double postgraduate degrees”, he said.
Appealing to the activists to desist from taking law into their own hands, he said: “If you have any grievance, you can always take them up with the deputy commissioners and superintendents of police.”
Mr. Sangliana also asked the police to talk to ABVP activists and advise them sternly not to resort to violence. “It has to be handled properly, and there should be no hurry with regard to withdrawal of cases,” he remarked.
