Not silence, time to preserve liberated India, says Kuldip Nayar

New Delhi, Dec 28 (UNI) Emphasising the need to preserve country’s plurality, senior journalist and writer Kuldip Nayar on Thursday said some forces are disfiguring the country by enforcing majoritarianism, leading to slipping of the ‘idea of India’.
“This is not the time to be silent. It’s the time to fight back and preserve the liberated India as we did with the British”, he said.
Mr Nayar was speaking at an event while releasing the revised edition of “Who killed Swami Laxmanananda?”, a book authored by Anto Akkara, on the violence and killings in Kandhamal district of Odisha in 2008.
Swami Laxmanananda was killed on August 23, 2008 by unknown persons, and dozens of people were killed in the aftermath violence. Later members of CPI(Maoists) claimed the responsibility of killing Laxmanananda, the Christian organisations alleged conspiracy to target them.
While speaking at the event, CPI leader and Rajya Sabha member D Raja said that this is the time to think how to protect the secular democratic nature of India.
“We need a loving and compassionate India, but that’s absent now”, Mr Raja said.
Describing the judgment, which convicted seven people for killing of Swami Laxmanananda, as ‘outrageous’, CPI(M) polit bureau member Brinda Karat said the particular judgement will be known as “what a judgement should not be”.
She alleged that even after two years the Justice Naidu commission report, which enquired the Kandhamal violence remained in cold storage.
