Be ready to die: Siddaramaiah, HDK get death threats

Bengaluru: A letter claiming death threat to Karnataka Opposition leader Siddaramaiah, former Chief Minister H D Kumaraswamy and famous progressive litterateur K. Veerabhadrappa and other intellectuals has surfaced on social media.

A 2-page letter, received by Veerabhadrappa, written by ‘Sahishna Hindu’ (tolerant Hindu) reads that these intellectuals must be prepared for their death for indulging in anti-national activities,

“You have been on the path of destruction. Death is very close to you. You be ready. Death might strike you in any form. Inform your family members and make arrangements for your funerals,” the message in Kannada reads.

Taking note of the threat, police are contemplating beefing up the security.

Former Chief Minister H.D. Kumaraswamy has warned the government not to take such threats lightly. He urged the ruling BJP to provide security to progressive thinker and writer K. Veerabhadrappa and also to other writers who have opposed the government’s silence on “communal polarisation” in the state.

Incidents such as the shootout of activist and writer Prof M.M. Kalburgi should not be repeated in the state, he said. The development has caused concern in the state. Following the hijab row and Muslim organisations’ protest against the court verdict, Hindu organisations have demanded a ban on Muslim merchants in temples, halal cut meat, idols made by Muslim sculptors, mango traders and even drivers and transport companies.

The opposition Congress and JD(S) have blamed ruling BJP for these developments and alleged that it is aiding and abetting Hindu organisations to create unrest in society.
