Stop right wing groups hounding Pattabhi Somayaji!

304 Signatures Goal: 500

Mr. Pattabhirama Somayaji, teacher of English who teaches at the University College, Mangalore has been targetted by right wing groups for his consistent remarks against their violence. Now the district-in-charge minister has directed the university to issue notice to him in a bid to dismiss him, for speaking against the "state". This is after his speaking against the pub incident involving Sri Rama Sena in Mangalore last month. A sizeable chunk of students in the Mangalore University College, (about a hundred, led by ABVP), is demanding the removal of Mr. Pattabhirama Somayaji for speaking openly against the recent attack on the pub in Mangalore, and they had observed a forceful bundh of the college. Mr. Somayaji has been a fearless speaker and has been talking truth to power for which he has been consistently targetted in recent times. The latest development is a very dangerous one for Mr. Somayaji, for the autonomy of the University, and needless to say, for larger society.
