Tapan Padhi in Judaical custody: People in Dark

Subhas Chandra Pattanayak

Founder of Mission Justice Tapan Padhy is in judicial custody under allegations that the people of Orissa, in general, are not aware of.

On coming to know of this, I had made a public query: whom should the State punish: those who have destroyed the essence of our constitution inscribed in the Preamble or Tapan Padhi, whose wordy fire against the system of injustice appears to some as profane?  (ଯେଉଁମାନେ ଭାରତ ସମ୍ବିଧାନର ଉଦ୍ଦେଶ୍ୟିକା ଉଜାଡ଼ି ଦେଇଛନ୍ତି ସେମାନେ ଦଣ୍ଡନୀୟ କି ସେମାନଙ୍କ ପ୍ରତି ଭର୍ତ୍ସନାର ସ୍ବରରେ ଶୋଷିତର ତତଲା ନିଃଶ୍ବାସ ମିଶାଇଥିବା Tapan Padhi?) And, everybody who reacted, put his appreciation for Padhi on records and condemned the police action against him. The post was copied and circulated by some noteworthy visitors to my timeline on FaceBook.

Padhi is intolerable to the corrupt and plutocratic perpetrators of misrule. He decided to transform his ‘Mission Justice’ to a political party and has taken steps for its registration. This is why he perhaps has been framed up.

The people must not be kept in the dark on his arrest. The allegations against him in their entirety need be immediately placed in the official website and every iota of action against him should be made public.

Economically week persons of this Republic have the right to create their own political party and profanity on part of Padhi, if any, cannot and must not be a plea to keep him away from the people that follow him in this time of the election.

On the other hand, the Supreme Court of India having nullified the Sec.66A of the IT Act, Padhi’s acrid words, if any, in social media by means of a computer or a communication device, as is  reportedly the case, deserves to be viewed in terms of the apex dictum with immediate effect, so that his followers are not kept devoid of his advice and guidance at the time of the greatest exercise of democratic rights.
