We all know the unfortunate event in Charlie Hebdo office in Paris. And we all condemned it vociferously. We - all Indians did that.
But do we know about a similar incident which happened in our own country. Perumal Murugan a tamil author whose book 'One part woman' has angered the religious fundamentalists is forced to give a written statement that Murugan the author is dead. Even the administration has not helped him.
On January 8th, on police advice, he fled his hometown with his family.
Perumal Murugan has stated that protest against the book has nothing to do with the book. But the people are trying to settle scores with him for his stand against casteism. Murugan has compiled 32 articles of his students who bore the brunt of casteism and he also has dedicated his latest novel to the victim of casteism.
But the literary world of Tamilnadu is expressing its solidarity with Murugan.
