Mysuru, June 30:- Mysuru District Dalita Sangharsha Samithi activists staged a protest on Saturday, condemning the murder of journalist-activist Gowri Lankesh and the alleged plot to murder writer Prof K S Bhagavan.
The protesters, who gathered near the Deputy Commissioner office, said that rationalist thinker and writer Prof Bhagavan is being targeted for writing about the oppression in the name of god and religion. They warned that if such anti-social elements don’t keep away from violence, Dalits too would answer them in their way. They urged Chief Minister H D Kumaraswamy to take strict action.
