Mr Kumar Ketkar,editor of Marathi daily Lokasatta might face series of court cases for his foolish article in paper on 25th Oct 2010 naming भगवे दहशतवादी! means Saffron Terrorists.In this article he has made allegations that Sadhvi Pragya Sing,the accused in Malegao blast case has shown the maps of proposed blast sites to senior BJP Leader L K Advani before Malegao blast.Also he has clearly made references about terrorism linking to Hindu faith thus insulting whole Hindu community.
There is strong feeling in Hindu society after reading this article and preparations are going on to file at least 20 to 25 court cases at various courts all over the Maharashtra against Mr Kumar Ketkar.This is not the first instance of Mr Ketakar making baseless allegations against Hindu Organisations and Hindu Society.He has become habitual in this regard and he has great skill of linking anything happened against national interest to RSS or VHP.
If court cases gets filed against Mr Ketkar at various locations in Maharashtra he would sit in line with M F Husain for facing multiple cases in single issue.
The first case is likely to be filed against Ketkar at Ratnagiri District court by next week and then at Navi Mumbai,Thane,Latur,Nagpur,Gadchiroli,Nasik,Kolhapur,Sangli,Madgao and Panaji(Both in Goa) courts respectively.These cases would be exemplary for Marathi media as Hindu organisations and Hindu society always remains at receiving end of Marathi media
