Muthalik, Prakash Won't Be Allowed to Disturb Peace: Parrikar

Goa Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar today gave an assurance that Sri Ram Sene chief Pramod Muthalik and human rights activist Cedric Prakash will not be allowed to disturb peace in the state.

"I assure Goa's people, no person be it Muthalik or Cedric Prakash, will be permitted to disturb peace in the state. We will take action against them. My warning is conditional. The action will be taken only if they try to disturb peace," Parrikar said in the Goa Legislative Assembly during Question Hour.

Muthalik had earlier announced his intention to start a branch in the state of the Sri Ram Sene, which is infamous for the 2009 Mangalore pub attack.

Prakash, the director of the Ahmedabad-based Jesuit centre for human rights, justice and peace, is known to deliver speeches against Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

Parrikar today accused the media and few politicians of giving undue mileage to Muthalik.

"Some newspapers and politicians are trying to instigate people from non-existing threat," he alleged.

The issue was raised by Congress legislator Aleixo Reginaldo Lourenco, who asked if any FIR had been filed against Muthalik.

In a written reply, Parrikar told the member that on May 29, 2014, a complaint was filed by Vaman Chodankar and Durgadas Kamat against Muthalik, but there is no FIR against him in the state.
