A police complaint has been filed against a BJP MLA in Sringeri town of Karnataka’s Chikamagalur region after he suggested at a party rally on Wednesday that journalist Gauri Lankesh would not have been killed had she not addressed the RSS in derogatory terms.  D N Jeevaraj, BJP MLA from Sringeri, while flagging off a BJP Yuva Morcha rally, suggested that Lankesh was killed because she published a story with the headline “Chaddigala Marana Homa  (the last rites of the short pants or the RSS)”.

Reacting to the comments, CM Siddaramaiah said, “What does it mean? Does it not indicate that they are behind it?”

        What killed Gauri Lankesh? Hatred of course. Sadly, the same hatred that she herself seem to have nurtured in her mind against Hindu ideologues. She wrote in kannada I believe: chaddigala marana homa ---means fire sacrifice of people of Hindu ideology. If it is true, that means she could not overcome her fixation and was as rigid in her leftist beliefs as the far Right ideologues. But nevertheless she deserves sympathy and did not deserve to be killed. RIP Gauri Lankesh.
