Mar Remigios Criticizes Government's Stance on Wildlife Attacks, tells Minister to Resign

Thamarassery: 'If government fails to provide security to people, the forest minister should resign', said Bishop Mar Remigios Inchananiyil, criticizing the government's stance against wildlife attacks. He emphasized that those incapable of performing their duties should not hold positions and should resign.

He pointed out that even when people continue to be attacked and killed by wild animals, the government faces no consequences.

Incidents of wildlife attacks have increased in Wayanad and Idukki. In recent years, thousands of people have died. Despite this, the government's response has been inadequate. Farmers are prohibited from protecting themselves, which adds to their distress and suffering.

Protection of wildlife is the responsibility of the Forest Department. Howebet, everyone has the right to defend themselves against wild life attacks. When someone is attacked, they should also have the right to defend themselves.

Mar Remigios Inchananiyil insisted that such self-defense measures should be allowed and supported by the courts. He also stressed the importance of taking preventive measures against attacks, such as protecting coastal areas from shark attacks and implementing safety measures on roads.

Addressing concerns about fear and psychological anguish, Bishop Remigios remarked that it is the duty of society to provide support and protection to those affected. He highlighted the need for proactive measures to ensure the safety and well-being of the people, emphasizing the importance of timely action.

In response to questions about how individuals can cope with the situation, Bishop Remigios suggested that society should come together to support those in need.
