Hubballi: Conservative forces backed by superstition and illogical religious traditions are behind the brutal  killing of rationalists like M M Kalburgi, Govind Pansare and Narendra Dabholkar, blamed chief minister Siddaramaiah here on Tuesday September 29.
Siddu womenteacherconSpeaking at a Women Teacher’s Convention of Belagavi division organized by Avva Trust in Hubballi, CM said that such extreme acts can only be done by those who lack scientific temper and human values. They will go to any extent if their illogical and baseless rituals are questioned, he added.

“People have to know the difference between superstition and beliefs. People should shun superstitious practices otherwise there will be no place for rationalists, scientific thinkers and truth seekers,” he added.

“Hinduism preaches that one should be loyal to his/her religion and respect others religion but a few don’t believe this. We have to respect the religious views of others as well. We should realise that we all are human beings first,” he said.

Agitating over sexual abuse on women and children CM said that the state government has taken adequate measures to curb these acts. “The government has been giving RS 3,000 as pension per month to acid attack victims and Rs 20 lakh for further treatment,” he added. He expressed concern over gender imbalance.   

Siddaramaiah said that the government will consider the plea made by women teachers to celebrate Women Teachers’ Day every year on January 3 in memory of social reformer Savitribai Phule.

Avva Trust chairman Basavraj Horatti, MLC Tara Anuradha and others were present.
