Loksatta Party condemns the cold blooded murder perpetrated by casteist elements against inter-caste marriage couples. Loksatta Party urges the government and police to quell this violence with iron hand. Loksatta Party further urges political parties to condemn this. Loksatta Party advises youngsters to stop caste based marriage as that is the only solution to stop casteism in the nation.
Inter caste marriages go a long way in curbing casteism. Murderous violence against inter caste couples especially if groom is a Dalit is increasing as evidenced by incidents involving Ilavarasan, Gokulraj, Sendhil and now Sankar.This is done not only to intimidate that particular couple but to create a ‘chilling effect’ on society intimidating other couples who want to marry out of caste.
Loksatta Party calls upon government to ban any organisation that advocates violence. Choosing one’s life partner is a fundamental right. Loksatta Party condemns government and police for not protecting this right and asserts that the persistant inaction by government is responsible for continued casteist murders. Loksatta Party urges government to act at least now to prevent further violence.
Loksatta Party urges judiciary to complete caste based cases in a timely manner. Casteist elements now take comfort in the reality that cases take forever to be decided. Judiciary, with crores of pending cases, must take a share of the blame for the social ills of this nation.
The only way to end this casteist violence is for youngsters to renounce caste and caste based marriages. Citizens should reject caste based political parties and vote for progressive parties. The current big parties keep an unfortunate silence fearing casteist vote banks. Keeping in mind the progressive name Tamil Nadu has earned, Loksatta Party urges people and political parties to abjure casteism and encourage inter caste marriages.
