Union Law Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad on Wednesday criticised those justifying the killing of activist-journalist Gauri Lankesh on social media.

Several people condemned the incident on social media, but a few posted hateful comments and justified Lankesh’s murder.

“Expressing happiness on the killing of anyone is shameful, regrettable and totally against Indian traditions. Social media is not for that.

“I strongly condemn & deplore the messages on social media expressing happiness on the dastardly murder of Gaurilankesh,” Prasad said in a series of tweets. He hoped that the Karnataka police would soon nab the killers.
