Jignesh Mevani Speaks at Rally for Resistance at Bengaluru
September 19, 2017
The Rally of Resistance is organised by the Forum Against Assasination Against Gauri Lankesh. Jignesh Mevani, convenor of Rashtriya Dalit Adhikar Manch speaks on the brutal murder Gauri Lankesh.
"Gauri used to call me her son. On this public platform, I give a commitment to Gauri-amma that till I breathe my last, every atom and particle of my existence will work to ensure that instead of Hindu Rashtra, this country becomes a progressive, secular, socialist democracy. To hell with the idea of Hindu Rashtra and to hell with Modi and Sangh Parivar's Hindutva. We will go to Delhi and demand from Modi – Either apprehend Gauri's killers or get out of this country."
