Vijay de Souza | TNN | Panaji | Jun 17, 2015:: Denied entry into Goa, Sriram Sena chief Pramod Mutalik addressed the delegates of the ongoing national Hindu convention, on Skype from Hubli.
The BJP government in Goa had banned Mutalik from entering Goa in 2014 and currently, the ban is extended by 60 days.
The leader of the Hindu right wing organization has challenged the Laxmikant Parsekar government decision in the high court of Bombay at Goa. Hearings on the matter ended on Tuesday and the order is reserved.
The 7-day national Hindu convention is on at Ramnathi, Ponda. Mutalik said he was eager to attend the convention as its objective was to deliberate on ideas for the formation of Hindu rashtra.
In his address from Hubli on Tuesday, Mutalik said that BJP government is playing double standards on the issue of Hindutva, Hindu Janjagruti samiti said in a statement Tuesday evening.
“BJP government has banned a real Hindu activist like me from entering Goa on on hand” he said adding that on the other hand, people involved in drug mafia and even anti-national elements are welcome in Goa.
TNN | Panaji | Jun 17, 2015:: The high court of Bombay at Goa on Tuesday reserved its judgement on a petition filed by Sriram Sena chief Pramod Mutalik challenging Goa government’s order banning his entry in the state.
S R Rivonkar, government counsel, on Tuesday countered the argument of the petitioner’s lawyer, who argued on Monday that several orders passed by the state government authorities prohibiting the petitioner from visiting the state were not based on any evidence.
During the hearing on Tuesday, Rivonkar pointed out that the petitioner’s socio-political activities include issues like ‘love jihad’, which is likely to disturb the communal harmony in the state.
Rivonkar said that Mutalik, in his petition, claims that he carries out various socio-political activities in a constitutional and peaceful manner, which has irked certain individuals and organizations intolerant towards the very right of raising such issues.
In Goa, he wants to fight against ‘love-jihad’, reduce menace of drugs and carryout a peaceful campaign against Bangladeshi immigrants, Rivonkar alleged. He added that when these things are clear, no additional evidence is required.
Mutalik’s counsel, Nagesh Takbhate, argued that the petitioner can’t be banned from entering Goa as there is no criminal case pending against him though he regularly visited Goa for a decade preceding the ban. He also submitted that the petitioner wants to enter Goa for religious purpose and won’t be addressing public meetings or addressing the media.
Referring to the controversy surrounding Tausif Shaikh’s tiatr in 2014, the petitioner’s counsel submitted that there wasn an attempt to malign the image of his client by projecting him in bad light.
