Silencing voice with gun, worst way to win debate: Kamal Haasan

Chennai: Film actor Kamal Haasan on Thursday condemned the murder of journalist-activist Gauri Lankesh, saying silencing a voice with a gun is no solution to a debate.

Lankesh was gunned down at her Bengaluru home on Tuesday night by unidentified assailants

“Silencing a voice with a gun is the worst way to win a debate. Condolence to all those who are grieving Gauri’s demise,” Kamal, who last week hinted at forming a political party but made it clear he won’t ally with the “saffron” — the Hindu Right, tweeted.

Lankesh was gunned down at her Bengaluru home on Tuesday night by unidentified assailants.

Her killing led to wide spread protests and condemnation. Even Bollywood celebrities like Shabana Azmi, Javed Akhtar and Shekhar Kapur vehemently criticised the attack.

The Karnataka police has formed three special teams to probe her murder. “Role of extreme Left wing in this ghastly act cannot be ruled out as the Maoist were unhappy with Lankesh efforts to bring back the ultra leftists into the mainstream,” said a police official associated with the investigation.
