BJP notice to historian Guha; for linking Sangh Pariwar with Gauri Lankesh murder

The BJP has sent legal notice to historian Ramachandra Guha, who had alleged that journalist Gauri Lankesh’s killers could be from the Sangh Parivar – a group of organisations led by the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS), the BJP’s ideological mentor. Mr Guha has been warned of civil and criminal action if he doesn’t offer an unconditional apology within three days for his comments, the BJP has said.  The legal notice quotes the eminent historian as telling scroll.in last week: “It is very likely that her murderers came from the same Sangh Parivar from which the murderers of Dabholkar, Pansare and Kalburgi came.”  Gauri Lankesh, one of India’s most fearless and outspoken journalists, was killed outside her Bengaluru home last Tuesday, shot dead at close range by unknown bikers. The police have not yet made any significant progress in its investigation.
