I have failed to understand as to why the Catholic community led by Leaders from the BCS, SOUL, Watchdog foundation, BEIA and Police Reforms watch met the assistant Commissioner himself, when he was the person accused of the illegal demolition of the cross.
During the meeting the officer himself made a statement that since he himself had carried it out, he will not comment on it and that he had followed rules.
Admittedly a complaint online was filed against the officer by the above mentioned bodies representing the Catholics.
Looks like they have failed in application of mind that when you are accusing a person, that too a government servant discharging his duty and admittedly accused of wrong, a meeting was held with him.
What a sham and Mockery we have made of our self.
Strange that they have advocates on board and no one could guide that the matter had to be addressed to the superior of the officer concerned or the municipal commissioner.
For a fact the peace March ought to have been taken to Azad Maidan and the municipal commissioner ought to have been appraised directly. The BMC has a legal department which looks into issues.
We have acted in haste due to acts of persons wanting to get some fame at the cost of the community.
The cross which was desecrated at Vakola too, the police state was a motive of theft. Haven’t we heard that before too when another cross was desecrated.
We have to pull up our socks and put up our thinking caps and not be taken for granted by some of our people who lead us without legal acumen and foresight.
