Murder of Gauri Lankesh

44

I really appreciate journalists and their passionate job that despite being beaten many times, they don’t give up and provide us with news of various kinds. The gruesome murder of Gauri Lankesh (an Indian journalist) is an assault on the freedom of the press in India. Gauri Lankesh was the editor of a Kannada language tabloid that has frequently been critical of Hindu extremists.
The Karnataka government should spare no effort to uncover the frightening plot and bring the culprits to book. By silencing this editor and journalist, we Indians have proved that we are a country run by goons. Gauri Lankesh worked for the betterment of the society and what she wrote was appreciated by most of the people. The Karnataka government did the right thing by giving her a State funeral. May her soul rest in peace.
