Karnataka government edits circular ordering cases against 'innocent minorities' be dropped

"BJP doesn't understand English properly", Karnataka minister Ramalinga Reddy today said after the saffron party objected to a letter written by the state DGP inviting opinion on withdrawing cases against "innocent" people belonging to minority community.

Deccan Herald quoted Minister Reddy saying, "The words, "all innocent minorities", were added by oversight". It would further create insecurity among the majority community which is facing the wrath of the police.

The previous circular had asked the police officials to drop cases registered against "minorities" involved in the incidents of communal clashes. "The previous circular was based on the Sachar Committee's recommendations", he told reporters in Bengaluru yesterday.

"If this is not blatant Muslim appeasement, then what is?"

"There is no political intent from chief minister Siddaramaiah and the Congress to resolve the Mahadayi river dispute with him not reaching out to Goa Congress to resolve the crisis".

"The pride and prestige of Kannadigas, the life and property of the people of Karunadu, the reputation and image of Karnataka have suffered an enormous damage under Siddaramaiah and the people of Karnataka will punish the Congress government in the coming assembly elections", she warned. If you are a "Rafiq", you'll be given bail. In the last three years, we have withdrawn around 400 cases that involve more than 2,800 Hindus and 301 Muslims. When BJP leaders urged Congress leaders to convince their Goa counterparts through AICC president Rahul Gandhi, Chief Minister Siddaramaiah said, "I will try my best to convince Congress leaders of Goa".

According to News18, the circular was sent by Inspector General Police (IGP) Shivaprakash at the state police headquarters to 22 Superintendents of Police (SPs) and a few police commissioners.

Mr Reddy had clarified that the January 25 communique referred to all minorities, including Muslims, Christians, Jains, Buddhists and Sikhs. Though the reminder (letter) talks about minorities in particular, our government is open to all.
