This is a commentary article on study of spiral of silence and spiral of violence, two theoretical concepts in mass communication genre, especially in minority community’s perception expression pattern. This study explores the rise of the spiral of violence trend in the underrepresented and historically silent community. Ii is clear that fear of isolation of minority community force them to remain almost silent (even in existing press) and such behavior compels them to express their voices through series of protest after certain time frame (period), and it comes with spiral of violence form. It may go again in silence and the cycle (silence-violence) continues.
