Chennai, Oct 5: Madras High Court Chief Justice A K Ganguly has opined that the recent violent attacks in various parts of the country were an aberration in the country's rich history. Addressing an Eid Milan gathering here on Saturday, Oct 4, he said the violent incidents were a matter of serious concern and should be condemned by all religions.
Describing how both the Hindus and Muslims were jointly celebrating Durga Puja in Kolkata, he said the feeling of brotherhood was inherent in the Indian psyche. ''Tolerance is in our blood. It is the spirit of the country.
Let's rise above all these petty things and resolve to help the innocent victims of violence. Let's put an end to the violence,'' he added.
Major General E J Kochekkan, General Officer Commanding (Andhra Pradesh, Tamil Nadu, Karnataka and Kerala) said the social fabric of the country was being destroyed by the recent disturbances.
''The country is passing through a difficult period and the innocent people are being killed in the name of religion,'' he added.
He said the country would frustrate all evil designs of the terrorists and unitedly defeat all the anti national forces, which were posing a threat to the country's integrity.
Sri Lankan Deputy High Commissioner P M Amza and Madras High Court Judge K N Basha also attended the function.
Major General Kochekkan also released a booklet on Ramadan during the occasion.
