People protest in Bengaluru condemning the murder of journalist Gauri Lankesh

Calling for punishment of those behind Tuesday evening’s murder of senior journalist Gauri Lankesh in Bengaluru, Congress Vice-President Rahul Gandhi tweeted, “Anybody who speaks against the RSS/BJP is attacked & even killed. They want to impose only one ideology which is against the nature of India.”

“Sometimes the PM speaks under pressure but the entire idea is to crush dissent and this is resulting in a very serious problem in India,” Mr. Gandhi said in a second tweet.

In a third tweet, the Congress leader stated, “The truth will never be silenced. Gauri Lankesh lives on in our hearts. My condolences &love to her family. The culprits have to be punished.”
