The shocking death of Madhu, a tribal youth, has stirred anger all across Kerala.
With many eminent writers and activists expressing their anguish, the 27-year-old’s death has raised serious questions among the public as well.
Now, Malayalam superstar Mammooty has also expressed his pain through an emotional note on Facebook. In the post, Mammotty calls Madhu his brother. The actor went ahead and said that the violent mob has killed his brother.
HERE IS THE COMPLETE TRANSCRIPT OF HIS FACEBOOK POST:
“Madhu shouldn’t be called a tribal. I call him my brother. The mob killed by brother. If you think as a human, Madhu could be your brother or son. Above all, a citizen with equal rights like us. You shouldn’t call someone a theif if they steal out of hunger. Poverty is a creation of our society. Our system which gave power of justice to that violent mob is equally responsible. No matter whatever be the reason, people lynching fellow beings is unacceptable. How do we proclaim to be civilised in this dark world of hunger and trial? Madhu…. sorry.”
The Facebook post by the actor turned out to be an instant hit as it has been widely shared across social media. The post garnered over 80,000 engagements in the first 2 hours itself.
The actor has also shared a picture of Madhu. Thousands of people have commented on the post, applauding the actors stand on condemning the brutal incident.
