There seems to be no end in sight to political controversies related to journalist Gauri Lankesh’s murder. Now, the BJP has slapped a legal notice on renowned historian Ramachandra Guha for reportedly alleging the role of RSS and the party in Gauri Lankesh’s murder, news channel Republic TV reported. Moreover, news agency ANI has confirmed that Karnataka BJP Yuva Morcha’s Secretary issued a legal notice to historian Ramachandra Guha over his statement on Gauri Lankesh murder. This development comes after big political war broke out over Gauri Lankesh’s murder in Bengaluru. Karnataka government has formed an SIT to probe the killing.

Earlier, in the day, the Karnataka BJP had said if Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi is holding the RSS and right-wing ideology responsible for the killing of journalist-activist Gauri Lankesh, he should furnish evidence to back his allegations. A day after the Left-leaning journalist was killed, Rahul Gandhi had said that anybody who speaks against the ideology of BJP and RSS, is pressured, beaten up, attacked and even killed.

Karnataka BJP chief B S Yeddyurappa today said, “If Rahul Gandhi has any proof to prove his allegations, he should furnish it.”

BJP leader and Union Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad had also attacked Gandhi on September 8 for holding the right wing and RSS ideology responsible for the killing of the 55-year-old journalist.

Lankesh, known to be an anti-establishment voice with strident anti-right wing views, was shot dead at close range by unknown assailants at her home here on the night of September 5 in Bengaluru.

    What a Stalinist/Talibanist mindset this communist joker Ramchandra Guha has. Even before the investigation is over he started accusing people over mere political differences tries to run a smear campaign just like Taliban would do. Typical kangaroo justice mongering bigot.

          It is really sad that the unfortunate killing of Ms.Gauri Lankesh, the fearless journalist - - social activist, has been politicized and mudslinging against each other has started. All these political chaps have no patience to await the outcome of the Investigation which has started in right earnest. The CM of Karnataka has assured the mother and other family members of the slain journalist that the culprits will be nabbed soon. Such kind of mudslinging between political parties will in fact hamper the process of Investigation. Political maturity demands patience in such highly sensitive cases.
