Prakash Raj condemns attack on student leader
Umar Khalid, the well-known Leftist student leader from Jawaharlal Nehru University in Delhi, was yesterday allegedly attacked by unidentified gunmen near Parliament's Constitution Club. He "escaped" unhurt and is "safe".
Prakash Raj, who is fond of the Communist student activist, said, "One more attempt to KILL..SHAME..look at what fake news.. instilling hatred through media .branding those who question the system as anti-national ..leading us to .. how long will you bigots continue to silence us #justasking I support @UmarKhalidJNU."
At a time when the bonafides of the attack are yet to be established, a celebrity of Prakash Raj's stature should have waited for the truth to come out before resorting to hyperbole.
