Last week, police arrested five persons — all members of various Sangh Parivar outfits — in connection with abusing Sooryakumar.
Sooryakumar had moderated a discussion on a popular news show on whether celebrating Mahishasur Jayanti could be considered an act of treason, after which she received 2,000-odd threat calls on her cellphone.

One of the five accused told police that he got Sooryakumar’s number from a WhatsApp group called Sanga Dhwani. Three others, arrested from Kannur, are members of Sri Rama Sena.

    The moronic Bhakts and their silly Fairy Tales. No different than the mindless islamists and their medieval fantasies. Religion (your silly myths and fairytales ) is poison.

    When the "heroes" who were previously arrested for threatening to rape and kill her, were released, the Sangh Parivar welcomed them with floral garlands. That is the Sangh Parivar culture for you.
