Demand for speeding up probe into Gauri Lankesh murder

Prakash Raj

Noted actor Prakash Raj on Monday launched an attack on Prime Minister Narendra Modi for remaining silent on journalist Gauri Lankesh's murder, Raj said that he wants to return his five national awards to Modi as he is "bigger actor" than him.

The actor on Sunday was invited to speak at an event organized by the Democratic Youth Federation of India. He called out the PM for his silence on journalist Gauri Lankesh's murder and his refusal to condemn those who lauded the killing on social media. "And the Prime Minister turns a blind eye to this", he said.

"You must have seen a video from this morning and when I say it, I was confused if the person (Yogi Adityanath) was Uttar Pradesh's Chief Minister or a temple priest". Looks like he plays a double role. "I wish to return all my National awards". Speaking to Deccan Chronicle, the five-time National Award-winning actor said, "I am anxious about the PM's silence". The cruelty and violence of social media are becoming clear.

We seem to have learned from that now and this season we might be able to show people how good we are. It left Everton two points above the drop-zone with just two wins in their opening seven league games.

Prakash Raj also said the ideology of the people who celebrate Gauri Lankesh's murder is open secret and PM follows them. "Electors think they are innocent but in reality, they are ignorant". "PM should respect my profession as for me it takes second to differentiate between acting and truth".

"I am a renowned actor".

On September 5, Gauri was shot by to death by unknown assailants outside her home in Bengaluru. When you act as if you don't know anything, do you think I or people will buy it? When I see such talented actors, I feel like giving them all five National Awards that were given to me", Raj said adding that, "Let's not be afraid of such people. "On October 5, we will participate in a massive gathering at Jantar Mantar in New Delhi where people from all over the country will gather to demand the right to freedom of expression", she said.
