“Pauline” Valencia, Mangalore-2
We are horrified to learn from the, News Media the devastating news of threat to the life of Mr.S.R Nayak , the Chairman of Karnataka Human Rights Commission. Never before in the history of Karnataka such serious allegations are levelled against a government by a man of the stature of a Chief Justice.
It is indeed a very serious allegation and those who have followed the violations of human rights indulged into by the present govt. and its functionaries from very close quarters since it has come to power in the state, have no reason whatsoever to doubt the bonafides of Mr S.R. Nayak. Enough criminal records have been created by our govt. and its Ministers before and after becoming Ministers. The harassment meted out to the Chairman of the SHRC is part of history now.
While demanding from the state govt. Complete protection to Mr S.R. Nayak and his family we would be writing to NHRC and the Central Govt. to come to the aid of Mr.S.R. Nayak by taking necessary steps as per law against the state governments, ministers concerned as well as other functionaries involved.
