Condemning the Udaipur killing by which a tailor was hacked to loss of life by two males in Rajasthan on Tuesday, Kerala Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan on Wednesday mentioned that it was an “atrocity that shook the human conscience.”

In a Facebook publish, Vijayan mentioned that the incident was a reminder that “communalism would wipe away the last speck of virtue from human beings”. The killing, he mentioned, is a grim warning that the most important problem that the nation faces is the expansion of communal extremism. It reveals how Islamic fundamentalism might induce Hindutva extremism and vice versa, he mentioned.

Two males hacked a tailor, Kanhaiya Lal, to loss of life inside his store and posted a video on-line of the incident claiming it was in retaliation for the sufferer sharing remarks made by the BJP’s Nupur Sharma on the Prophet.

In his publish, Vijayan requested folks to ensure that communalism wouldn’t be allowed within the title of any faith. “People belonging to all religions ought to unite, recognising the truth that the reply to at least one communalism shouldn’t be one other communalism, however secularism. All non secular organisations which imagine in secularism ought to deplore the killing and lift their voice towards communalism. Let us pledge that the nation won’t be consigned to communal forces, and all will stand united to take care of peace and unity,’’ he mentioned.

Vijayan had earlier tweeted: “Strongly condemn the barbaric murder in #Udaipur. Request the authorities to take stern action against those responsible. Such heinous acts would only serve to upset our harmonious living. Appeal to everyone to maintain peace and calm and let the law take its course.”

Meanwhile, Opposition chief V D Satheesan of the Congress, in a tweet, mentioned that the Udaipur homicide was “heinous” and “dastardly”. “Request all to maintain peace. These attacks are to torpedo communal harmony. Sure Rajasthan government will take stern action,” he mentioned.

However, BJP state president Ok Surendran mentioned Kerala faces a scenario just like Rajasthan, the place the tailor was murdered. “The brutal killing is a warning to the CPI(M) authorities in Kerala which inspires non secular extremism. Pinarayi (Vijayan) is selling extremism with an eye fixed on vote banks. Last week, a bunch of SDPI males brutally tortured and tried a younger CPI(M) employee for hours in Kozhikode. But, CPI(M) didn’t react to the incident to guard this vote-bank politics,’’ mentioned Surendran.

The assailants within the Udaipur killing recognized themselves in one other video as Mohammad Riyaz and Ghouse Mohammad, boasted concerning the “beheading” and issued loss of life threats to Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Sharma. Riyaz and Mohammad, each residents of Udaipur, have been arrested from Bhim in Rajasthan’s Rajsamand district.
