Ashutosh slams Bajrang Dal activist for celebrating Kalburgi’s murder

New Delhi, Aug. 31 : Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader Ashutosh on Monday lashed out at Bajrang Dal activist Bhuvith Shetty for hailing the murder of Kannada scholar M.M. Kalburgi, saying such people should be put behind bars.

“This person from Bajrang Dal has to be put behind the bars. He is not only praising the murder of M.M. Kalburgi, but also calling for the murder of another rationalist. Whatever Bajrang Dal leaders are saying is the true face of RSS, this is their true nature. They want to turn India into an extremist state,” Ashutosh told ANI.

Bajrang Dal co-convener in Bantwal taluk of Dakshina Kannada district, Bhuvith Shetty, had tweeted, “Then it was UR Anantamoorty and now it is MM Kalburgi. Mock Hinduism and die a dogs death. And dear K S Bhagwan you are next.”

The tweet has now been deleted from his twitter handle.

Kalburgi was shot dead by unknown persons around 8.40 a.m. at his residence in Dharwad on Sunday. (ANI)
