New Delhi: Activist Arvind Kejriwal Thursday
appealed to the employer of the man who threw a slipper at him during a public function two days ago not to dismiss him.
Reacting to reports in the media that Jitendra Yadav had
been thrown out of job in the wake of the incident, Kejriwal
wrote a letter to the employer of the youth asking him not to
take any such action as he himself does not have any ill-will
against him.

Appealing to his employer to change the company`s
decision, he said, "We should not have any ill-will against
him. We should pardon him. He did this (throwing slipper)
because he may have been under the influence of some corrupt
political forces.
"The dismissal of Yadav is not the solution of the
problem. Doing so is violence against his family. Violence is
not the reply for violence. Such an act will increase ill-will
in his mind," he said.

Yadav threw a slipper at Kejriwal on October 18 when the
social activist was proceeding for an event in Lucknow as part
of Team Anna`s anti-corruption campaign.
