It is a moral offence to write against anybody without disclosing identity

PP Raghavachary has left a new comment on your post "How can you say that "blasphemous material" agains...":

Dear Mr. Mohapatra, Please note that I am under no obligation to respond to any anonymous comments. You should not have published anything with out any name and identity. Further, that person is a coward and it is a moral offence to write on or against anybody without disclosing their identity. It is a fundamental rule of a civilised society, that no personal attack should be allowed in any intellectual debate. In the past also the person seems to have indulged in such acts and for the same reasons I have ignored.

On a related note, the "ringleaders" should be named and known to the wider world. The practice of making accusations in secret, of anonymously slurring another person, has a long and dark history, and brings to mind the worst of McCarthyism in the United States, los desaparecidos in Latin America, and black limousines in Communist USSR.

  1. If I am not mistaken at one point Sri Aurobindo posted articles under a pseudonym - "Kali".

  2. Dear Mr. Mohapatra,

    As I had already pointed out there cannot be any debate with an anonymous person. Even the barking of a street dog makes more sense than what these anoymous persons comment. The anonymous can neither compare himself with Sri Aurobindo nor is he(anonymous) a psuedonym nor are we in those pre-independence days.

    Thanks,

    PP Raghavachary
