DYFI Central Executive Committee strongly condemns the cowardly murder on M M Kalburgi, a renowned writer, ex Vice Chancellor of Hampi University and rationalist. The esteemed literary scholar M M Kalburgi was shot dead outside his home in Dharwad today, producing a wave of speculation on the identity and motive of his killers. Kalburgi died in hospital after being shot at close range by two assailants, who arrived at his doorstep at 9 am on Sunday morning.

Gatherings to condole his death, and demand justice for his murder, took place across Karnataka including at the Town Hall in Bengaluru, where outrage over the crime was mixed with ambivalence over who might be behind it.

This is the third murder in last 2 years after the killing of Dr. Narendra Dhabholkar and Com. Govind Pansare in Maharashtra. Right wing forces are perhaps trying to spread terror by killing such stalwarts in a shockingly similar modes of killing. The similarity in the mode of killing is striking. And the threats also send to such people are also somewhat similar. But alas! our law enforcing authorities and Govt are not in a position to unwind the case. No substantive arrests are made even in the case of DR. Dhabholkar which happened 2 years ago.

We salute the brave man and dips our white flag in respect. We join the grief of the bereaved family at this moment.
