Earlier, the BJP’s Karnataka unit had slammed actor Prakash Raj for criticising Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s silence on those celebrating the killing of journalist Gauri Lankesh, saying he has shown political immaturity. Raj had described as chilling the silence of Modi on those celebrating the killing of Lankesh, including the ones followed by him on Twitter. State senior BJP leader and spokesman S Suresh Kumar had said, “The actor has shown his political immaturity by making a statement that suits his political ideology. Such allegations were made to win accolades.”

While questioning Modi’s silence, Raj appeared to suggest that he felt like returning his awards to such actors who are acting as though nothing has happened, but later insisted that he was not such a fool to give back national awards.
Raj, who has acted in Hindi, Kannada, Telugu and Tamil movies, had been a family friend of Gauri Lankesh, who was shot dead by unidentified assailants here on September 5. The BJP spokesman also sought to know why the actor preferred to remain silent during the Cauvery agitation by saying that he is only an actor. “If Raj wants to be active in politics, let him start his own political party. We do not want him to issue any certificate to Modi,” S Suresh Kumar had said.

      the politics is not a 2 and half hour drama. when you got an opportunity to speak with and in front of the media then think before act, because you have your own ideology and only act as anti bjp. these days many people focus and try to get fame among the people with base less compliments and criticizing without knowledge of politics or other. many of them directly criticizes by person. i condemned when you blame a prime minister of our nation and he should be punishable and the fourth estate behaves as a irresponsible manner because when we scolds a single journalist then how they have responded and now at this time when a celebrity criticizes our national prime minister why don't they have a basis manner to condemn and at least controls the man. its cent percent ridicules behavior of our media . they are giving such values to the pm post. even today modi is there later other person,it doesn't matter.so please every body must condemn such voices in future. thank you all

        Never heard so many "I" in a single statement. Also amazed at how the media is picking it up like golden words from some gospel. From the whole drama, it is very clear that he is looking for an inquisition and not justice. Gauri Lankesh had fiery opponents with a specific type (read "Hindutva brigade") of people. Raj's only intention is to have the establishment oppose this group. If he was really looking for justice, he should be up against the Karnataka government to fast track the murder investigation. Yes, Gauri Lankesh was murdered in Bangalore, which has a Congress government. But Raj never spoke any word against the Karnataka government or neither ask the Karnataka Chief Minister to come clean on the matter. He might not know but law order is a state government issue.
