Kozhikode:  A court in Kozhikode
on Saturday acquitted all the 17 falsely accused in the case relating to the
attack on a group of Christian conversion activists at a colony in Mambazhakkad
Meethal, Olavanna in the district in 2004.



 


Fast Track Court judge
Dharmarajan acquitted all the accused, all of them RSS-BJP workers, on the
basis of the Prosecution’s failure to prove the crime.
Hindus in the
area resisted the conversion activists including a foreigner Bernard and some
Nuns.



 


Both Congress and CPM
tried to accuse Hindu organisations for their defencive actions and created uproar
over the issue then. Kummanam Rajasekharan HAV leader told that the findings of
court which lead to acquittal of the accused is a stern warning to all those
campaigned over the issue to give a communal colour.



 


The Foreigner Bernard who
was engaged in conversion activities were clearly violating the law of land as
he was only in a visiting visa. He fled the state immediately after the Hindu
resistance action in the area. The other so called victims also were not ready
to cooperate with investigation as they were aware of their illegal actions.
They were transferred to far away convents by the Church authorities in
Kozhikode.
