Popular Front and Marxist goons attack Hindu Aikya Vedi march

dharmandhVanediperiyar (Idukki) : The recent march conducted by Hindu Aikya Vedi in Vandiperiyar was attacked jointly by Marxist and Popular Front goons. The peaceful rally was led by HAV district organizing secretary KP Sajeevan when trouble started brewing which led to disruption of the rally.

The Hindu Aikya Vedi has been protesting against Church authorities since the last six months for proceeding with construction of a church on government land. Following petitions submitted by HAV to the government, the district collector had stalled construction work. It is following this that local HAV leaders have been under threat.

According to sources, Marxist goons rushed to stage when president of HAV Kokkayar panchayat Vijayakumar began making his speech. “They tried to prevent him speak by switching off his microphone. When members of HAV tried to remove them from stage, PFI criminals joined them. They screamed that they would not allow the speech to be delivered. They retreated when Vandiperiyar police was intimated,” said eye witnesses.

The HAV has condemned the attack launched against it by the combined forces of Marxists and Popular Front jihadists. “Action must be taken against the marauders,” said HAV leaders. Sangh Parivar leaders have called for a protest march against the incident.
