BJP slaps legals notice on Guha for linking RSS with Gauri Lankesh murder

On the night of September 5, the 55-year-old editor of Kannada tabloid Gauri Lankesh Patrike was gunned down outside her home in the city's southwest suburb by unknown assailants.

Besides students from eminent colleges like St. Joseph's College joining the protest, the rally is also being led by journalist Palagummi Sainath, Teesta Setalvad and activist and documentary filmmaker Anand Patwardhan and film producer Prakash Raj.

"National leaders of the BJP should stop giving statements such as how the Congress government did not provide security to Gauri Lankesh in spite of she asking for it. Gauri never asked for police security and that is why we had not provided it. But we need to tell them in clear voice that we are not afraid and we will exercise our constitutional right to free expression". Who all will you target?" while Dalit activist Jignesh Mevani said: "The Sangh Parivar's ideology killed Gauri.

Lankesh was an outspoken critic of Hindutva groups.
