On Thursday night, Hindu Munnani spokesperson C Sasikumar was hacked to death in Coimbatore. This was the third brutal attack on a Hindu leader/activist in Tamil Nadu in just one week – VHP Hosur unit secretary R Suri was hacked to death on Monday; and on the same day, Shankar Ganesh, a Hindu Munnani member from Dindigul district, was attacked and is in critical condition.
In 2012-2013 Tamil Nadu had witnessed a series of hackings in which 6 Hindu leaders were murdered, including BJP General Secretary Auditor V Ramesh, and several more injured. Now, after a gap of 3 years, the same pattern of targeted murders is repeating, with parallels to recent attacks on Hindu activists in Southern Karnataka.
HinduPost decided to talk to Suryah SG, Vice-President TN State BJYM (BJP Yuva Morcha) and a lawyer practicing in the Madras High Court, on these worrying developments. Shri Suryah (twitter id: @suryahsg) is also the founder of the ‘6th Sense Foundation‘ – an NGO involved in social work, and is an articulate voice on Hindu issues on social media.
