Two esteemed scholar-activists of Maharashtra, Dr Narendra Dabholkar and Comrade Govind Pansare were shot dead in the last two years in almost identical circumstances. It is widely known that extremist Hindutva outfits like Sanathan Sanstha are behind these killings.

Obviously, the Sangh Parivar has decided that it is time for them to step up their efforts to destroy the secular fabric of India and convert the Indian State into an authoritarian Hindu Rashtra without brooking any opposition.
