THE TRUTH WILL FINALLY DISCOVER RIGHTEOUSNESS AND REMOVE IGNORANCE OF HUMANITY. VICTORY WILL BE YOURS!
The motive of this action is purely to express my love to humanity and my belief that only non-compromising struggle against immorality with a one-pointed mind towards our very goal of life, the infinite realm of love and peace, will ever bring the establishment of a real happy human society. What I have watched and experienced daily around me is not acceptable in any means and let a strong desire grow within me to help with personal effort to burn the very roots and seeds of corruption, exploitation and injustice.
Throughout the history great spiritual and religious personalities have been persecuted and imprisoned. Christ has been crucified, Krsna and Ramakrsna have been in prison, Mohammed the Muslim leader has been persecuted. And with these persons also their attached movements have been persecuted, became martyrs.
So also the founder of ANANDA MARGA, P.R. Sarkar, a great spiritualist, humanist and philosopher has become the victim of immoral authorities; imprisoned under fabricated charges in 1971 in India, poisoned in Patna jail Feb. '73 and got sentenced to life imprisonment under the corrupt circumstances during the emergency under Indira Gandhi. ANANDA MARGA, His organisation had been banned and thousands af members imprisoned without charges or orders and have undergone horrible tortures out of the purpose to remove the whole movement and slander its high image allover the world.
I believe that the two Americans, V. Sheppard and S. Dwyer, are victims like all other members of Ananda Marga, who have got implicated in cases under false charges in several countries. Personally I doubt if the trial has gone through without arbitrary and bribery.
I wish that the respective higher authorities may consider to grant a re-trial uninfluenced and without any pressure. Nobody knew anything about my desire for this self-sacrifice, it is a completely individual action, not known by anybody. With this action I would like to awake international attention and moral support towards ANANDA MARGA, a spiritual, humanitarian movement, which stands for self-realisation and service and upliftment of society.
WHEN IMMORALITY IS DOMINATING ALL CORNERS OF THIS PLANET, WHEN RIGHTEOUS HUMAN BEINGS BECOME VICTIMS OF ARBITRARY MISUSE, MAYBE THE SACRIFICE OF ONE INNOCENT HUMAN LIFE WILL BURN THE SEEDS AND ROOTS OF CORRUPTION, EXPLOITATION AND INJUSTICE - THE CAUSES OF THE SUFFERING AND DEGRADATION OF MANKIND.
