14 March 2018
THE Central Secretariat of Adivasi Bharat Mahasabha has strongly condemned the brutal murder of Madhu, a poor Adivasi youth who belong to Attappadi, a place in Kerala’s Palakkad District. Madhu was detained, denied food and water and tortured severely and handed over to the local police by self-styled hooligans claiming themselves as ‘moral police belonging to BJP, CPI(M), Muslim League and other vested interests, alleging theft by him. He died on the way to hospital.’

The ‘Moral Policing’ itself is part of taming the Adivasi youth to the dictates of encroachers and land mafia who are hand in glove with ruling LDF, as well as UDF and BJP fronts in Kerala. The ABM has called on the LDF Government in Kerala led by Pinarayi Vijayan who himself handles the police department to take resolute action against murderers of Madhu and take appropriate measures required for the protection of the land and livelihood of the Adivasi.
