Letters to the Editor
Sir, The Central and Gujarat Governments have proven their incompetence beyond doubt. The Prime Minister himself is paying heed to the demands of the Sangh Parivar. Does everything have to wait till the Supreme Court passes its verdict? Like many of my peace-loving countrymen, I believe silence only proves our complicity. Those accused of the inhuman killing of the kar sevaks in Godhra need to be given exemplary punishment. The same applies to those responsible for communal riots and carnage in Gujarat.
The Central and State Governments have largely remained passive. I have already appealed to the President to intervene. I want to tell the Union Government that there is only one way it can control the shameful situation: ban all religious institutions which are aggressive, violent, war-like and blood- thirsty. We, the majority of Indians, do not want a bloodbath in the name of religion. Please ban all such institutions. We have brought enough insult to the name Bharatvarsha by allowing fundamentalist religious institutions to prosper and turn violent. We Indians do not want such aggressive, malevolent institutions in the name of religion.
Say `no', say `ban them now.'
