What is the price of dissent in the world’s largest Democracy? It could be displeasure, it could be anger or it could even be someone’s wrath but could it be death? Surely it could not be death; it should not be death. So, would have been my guess, your guess, Sri Ramalingam’s guess. Only in his case the guess was wrong and he paid the price of his dissent by losing his life.
Sri Ramalingam was working as a caterer. On 5th Feb 2019, he had gone to Kumbakonam to pick up a few workers Kumbakonam in Thanjavur for his catering business. At Kumbakonam he came across a group of men who had no regard for communal harmony. Sri Ramalingam being a rational and brave Indian dissented with this group in a respectful manner for he did not want people to be divided. However, his peaceful dissent was met with a violent rebuttal that ended in his murder at the hands of his dissenters.
