Prakash Raj Regarding Gauri Lankesh’s Death Case: We need to step up and voice our dissent together
Actor-filmmaker Prakash Raj has raised his voice over the recent murder of journalist and activist Gauri Lankesh. The actor, who had known Gauri for over three decades, had rushed to Bengaluru on Tuesday to give mental support to her family. Prakash said that he had many good memories with Gauri and her death is a big loss to him.
The actor further believes that his generation taught to voice honest opinions. He said, “This is such nonsense. I knew Gauri for 30 years. In a sense, we were all children of (P) Lankesh, his ideologies, and way of life. I never dreamt that this day would come. We were taught to be honest citizens, who would never seize to raise one's voice. It is astonishing to see where we have come to today. One cannot imagine that this is how intolerant one can be. Where is the freedom of expression?”
The actor also said that to do justice to Gauri fight for what she fought for. He further added, “We need to step up and voice our dissent together. The media's support to this is commendable and I thank them for not bowing down to this act, which was to silence them in many ways”. Latest reports reveal that three police teams have been roped in to investigate the case.
