Perarivalan released; Release all! Including Nalini, Murugan, Santhan!
Perarivalan has finally been acquitted by the Supreme Court. He was jailed at the age of 18 and released on parole a few months ago after thirty years. He was one among the many who were made scapegoat to save Indian dignity. He was convicted without any evidence for buying battery for Rajiv’s murder. “We intimidated him and recorded a false confession”, the CBI officials who investigated the case said. They also said that this was a fabricated case.
The people of Tamil Nadu are happy to hear about Perarivalan’s release. How many protests have been held to stop the execution of seven accused in Rajiv’s murder! Comrade Senkodi Eluvar of the Kancheepuram Makkal Mandram set herself on fire to stop the execution.
We have waged many struggles on behalf of People’s Art and Literary Association, Revolutionary Student-Youth Front, the New Democratic Labour Front, Women’s Liberation Front and the Peasants Liberation Front, emphasizing that the release of the seven is politically correct. It is noteworthy that we besieged the High Court (on the day of the verdict) and demanded the abolition of the death sentence of the seven.

Democratic forces in Tamil Nadu and all Tamil organizations held a series of protests for the release of the seven. The release of the seven was the demand of the entire people of Tamil Nadu. In particular, Perarivalan’s mother Arputhammal had dedicated her life to the release of her son. It is noteworthy that the Congress and the Bharatiya Janata Party acted against the release of the seven.
Due to the continuous struggles of the Tamil people, the former Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu Jayalalitha passed a resolution in the Tamil Nadu Legislative Assembly in 2014 and 2016 to release all seven. The governor and the Union government did not even pay any attention to these resolutions. Finally, under Article 142 of the Constitution, the Supreme Court has now released Perarivalan in 2022.
The Supreme Court itself has inevitably been forced to admit that the seven, including Perarivalan, have been unjustly imprisoned for many years. The governor and the union government, who for all these years ridiculed people’s struggles, legislative assembly resolutions, and the sacrifice of Senkodi, are to blamed. In particular, the post of governor, which does not respect the resolution of the Tamil Nadu Legislative Assembly should be abolished.
Sanjay Dutt, who was arrested in the Mumbai blasts case, was released by the state government while the Tamil Nadu government could not release the seven. The Congress and the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), who were in power at the Centre, had continuously blocked the release of the seven Tamils. The fact is that the state and union governments have been competing and blaming each other and thereby delaying the release of Perarivalan.
So, the release of Perarivalan be just the beginning. Not only the accused in the Rajiv murder case, People’s Power is demanding the immediate release of all those unjustly imprisoned in the Coimbatore blast case.
