Bengaluru – BJP Government in Karnataka cancelled the publication programme of a book on the life of Pakistan’s former Prime Minister Imran Khan owing to the opposition from devout Hindu activists. The publication of this book was later held at the residence of the author in the presence of a few people.

On the 27th October, ‘Pramath’ Publication organised a programme at Malavalli Kalagrama to launch a book written by Sudhakar SB on the life of Imran Khan. It was to be released by a Retired Judge HN Nagamohan Das of the Karnataka High Court. On getting information of this, volunteers of Hindu Janajagruti Samiti (HJS) and Sriram Sena submitted a representation to V Sunil Kumar, Minister for Kannada and Cultural Department as well as with Police officer Manjunath, demanding cancellation of the programme. Mr ML Shiv Kumar, a devout Hindu leader, activists of Sriram Sena and Mr Mohan Gowda of HJS were present on the occasion.

 Glorifying the PM of an enemy country is an anti-National act ! : Mr Mohan Gowda

Mr Mohan Gowda

Mr Mohan Gowda said, “Pakistan is promoting terrorism in India. Imran Khan himself encouraged terrorist activities in Kashmir. During Imran Khan’s tenure as Pakistan Prime Minister, 40 brave Indian soldiers sacrificed their lives in the terrorist attack on Pulwama in Kashmir. Therefore, glorifying the Prime Minister of such an enemy country is an anti-National act by itself. Permission should not have been granted for the publication programme in the first place. This book should be banned and a case be registered against the organisers of this programme. We had submitted this demand to the State Government. The State Government has cancelled the programme in response to our demand”.

Editorial viewpoint

The Government should register a case of treason against the organisers of such a programme, and they should be put behind bars !
