The Ernakulam Rural Police have arrested four more accused for vandalising a film set in Kalady on May 26 and charged them with the Kerala Anti-Soci Kerala is not a place for communal forces: CM al Activities (Prevention) Act. The police will also invoke the Kerala Epidemic Diseases Ordinances against all the six accused.
Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan has promised tough action against those responsible for the incident. “This is clearly aimed at provoking religious sentiments. Kerala is not a land where such communal forces can thrive. The government will take strong action. There is no doubt about it,” said the Chief Minister at a press conference on May 25.
A day earlier, members of multiple right-wing groups destroyed an estimated Rs.50-lakh set of ‘Minnal Murali’ claiming the church set hurt their religious sentiments. The Antharashtra Hindu Parishad (AHP) and Bajrang Dal, which publicly claimed responsibility for the vandalism, cited the location of the set, which was near Adi Sankaracharya mutt in Kalady near Ernakulam.
