Mangaluru, Mar 30: The District Democratic Youth Federation of India (DYFI) has voiced their opposition to the decision to withdraw police security from Professor Narendra Nayak, who has been working to promote scientific temperament and expose the secrets of magic to the public. Professor Nayak had been provided with police security due to his placement on the hit list of terrorists.
A renowned thinker, Professor Narendra Nayak has been conducting programmes and campaigns across the country aimed at combatting superstition and injustice in the name of superstition. However, right-wing organizations have victimized and even murdered several social activists, including Narendra Daboklar, Govinda Pannare, M M Kalburgi, and Gauri Lankesh, who were all colleagues of Professor Nayak and shared his commitment to promoting scientific thinking.
The intelligence wing had received information indicating that Professor Nayak was also a target of such organizations, and despite police security, there have been attempts to assault him. Additionally, Professor Nayak has taken a leading role in the campaign for the arrest of the primary murder suspect of RTI activist Vinayak Baliga, and has received death threats and had his vehicle damaged as a result.
The DYFI district committee has expressed concern that the withdrawal of Professor Nayak's police security may be an attempt to intimidate witnesses in the Vinayak Baliga case. Given these suspicions, the DYFI is urging the police department to reinstate his unconditional police security.
