Hyderabad: Mr. Trent Franks, US representative for Arizona expressed his anxiety over the security of Prof. Kancha Ilaiah. He made a reference to his book “Why I am not a Hindu” which attracted the attention of the entire world.
Mr. Franks told that “freedom of expression” in India tantamount to death. He also told that noted journalist Gauri Lankesh was killed since she was exposing the facts.
Amid threats, Mr. Ilaiah is under self-imposed house arrest. He questioned as to what is the crime Prof. Ilaiah committed.
