Stop the murders of journalists and intellectuals

0 have signed. Let’s get to 500!

Ever since the BJP-led NDA government has come to power, there has been a systematic attack on intellectuals and journalists who have been critics of this government. The recent murdering of eminent journalist Gauri Lankesh reminds us the chilling murders of Govind Pansare, Narendra Dabholkar and MM Kalburgi. The government may not be directly involved in the killing of such personalities, but it can't wash its hands away from the moral and ideological influence it's ideology has had on such fringe elements that are carrying out such heinous crimes. There is a need for a united voice to confront this lethargy of government in curbing such crimes. Sign the petition to let these fringe groups know that the people of India will not be bogged down by bullets, and that Ideas and ideologies outlive violence. There is a need to send across a message that India respects diverse opinions and views and the country will not be held hostage under the sinew of a few rouges.
