Massive protests erupted all over the country against the brutal murder of activist and journalist Ms. Gauri Lankesh. In all the metros including Delhi, Kolkata, Mumbai, Hyderabad, Chennai etc. big protest rallies were organised. In Bengaluru, there were continuous and massive demonstrations. In Kerala, demonstrations and rallies were held in hundreds of places with massive participation by several organisations and political parties.
It is now further revealed that the Sangh Parivar and its goondas have several times threatened her with dire consequences for exposing the Parivar and also strongly criticising its brazen activities.The murder has similarities with the murders of social activists and free thinkers like Narendra Dhabolkar, Govind Pansare and Kalburgi. Even the bullets are stated to be the same type.
But these murderers forget one thing. By murder they can kill the person, but not the fire of ideas and thinking that has been started. Fascism will not be allowed in this secular democratic Republic.
