According to a report published in the Organiser, the five men accused in Palghar mob lynching are activists of the Communist Party. These activists are Jairam Dhak Bhavar from Divashi Gadagpada village, Mahesh Sitaram Rawate from Kinhavali Khoripada, Ganesh Devaji Rao from Divashi Wakipada, Ramdas Rupji Asare from Divashi Sathepada and Sunil Somaji Rawate from Divashi Patilpada village.
Further, the report goes on to state that all the 110 arrested by the police in connection to the lynching belong to Communist Party (Marxist) – CPM. The report also suggests at a shadow role of the Church in the entire incident. As per the report, Shiraz Balsara, who is head of an NGO named Kashtakari and has taken up the responsibility to bail out the arrested, has close links with the Church.
Palghar, as per many corners, is a hotbed of missionary activities undertaken by the Church. If the claims made in the Organiser report are true then it surely raises suspicion about the entire incident being part of a larger conspiracy.
On Thursday night, Sushil Giri Maharaj (35), Maharaj Kalpavriksha Giri (70) and driver Nilesh Telgade (30) were lynched to death by a mob while they were on their way to attend the funeral of their Guru Mahant Ram Giri Maharaj at Mumbai.
