Top Intellectuals demand stern action against stone pelters

Thirumani, an young tourist from Chennai was killed by stone pelters in Kashmir during his five-day trip to Kashmir with his family. Condemning this inhuman act, a homage meeting was held at India International Centre, New Delhi. Top Intellectuals including former Solicitor General of India, Mohan Parasaran, Retd Associate Prof Sri Ram College, Kasturi Kanthan, Ex-IIM & UNICEF Executive Smt Geeta Athreya, RSS leader and National Convenor of Prajna Pravah Shri J Nandakumar, Delhi Tamil Sangam Leader Bala Subramanyam, Jammu and Kashmir Vichar Manch leaders, Ravinder Pandita and Sanjay Ganjoo gathered at India International Centre, New Delhi, discussed the issue of stone pelting on tourists in Kashmir which took the life of a tourist from Chennai and demanded justice and stern action against stone pelters. “Give Stone-pelters same punishment as Saudi Arabia gives to such criminals, hang them mercilessly in public to stop recurrence of such incidents” demanded Mohan Parasaran. Shri J Nandakumar said that media eulogized slain terrorist Mohammed Rafi Bhat and pages were flooded with the stories hailing him as a pious college professor. He questioned why the same media was tight-lipped when the innocent Indian youth Thirumani from Chennai was brutally stoned to death as if he died in an accident. The speakers demanded capital punishment to the culprit and no more leniency should be shown to stone pelters as they are anti-nationals and have no place in India. 

Earlier, the gathering observed a two-minute silence and paid homage to Thirumani.
