Fake Encounter: Non-Violence is the only Answer to Instigative Violence
It is shocking to find Subramanian Swamy toeing the line of the fundamentalist and distorting my position, making false statements. It is also because he probably needed to become a blue eyed boy of BJP, which he has not been, being a late entrant to the Party.
Let him prove that I am a Maoist even when the Maoists themselves would never claim the same. Non violence for us is a value and not merely a strategy.
All the countrymen know that I personally and our organizations stand for the strongest punishment to all the terrorists always.
What we are opposed to is only the capital punishment, hanging the culprit. This is based on our sincere commitment to non-violence. More than 100 countries have given up the barbaric punishment which no human being can approve since killing a human being is an inhuman act!
I know why Mr Swamy is indulging in such a fake criticism….just when Mr Modi is going to poll in Varanasi. Mr Swamy has to defend the communal fervour in BJP’s campaign. However his purpose would be better served if he targets some of those politicians who are engaged in fake battles on non issues instead of people’s issues and struggles.
