Celebs Letter to Modi, Asks to Stop Jai Shri Ram War Cry
49 celebrities including Adoor Gopalkrishnan, Mani Ratnam, Anurag Kashyap and Aparna Sen, Konkona Sen Sharma, Soumita Chatterjee, Rupam Islam, Anupam Roy, Parambrata and Riddhi Sen have written a letter to Prime Minister Narendra Modi about the concerns over the lynching.
“Jai Shree Ram has become a war cry today,” they mentioned in the letter. The letter also said, "Ram is sacred for the majority community, stop defiling the name of Ram."
“The lynching of Muslims, Dalits and other minorities must be stopped immediately. We were shocked to learn from the NCRB that there have been no less than 840 instances of atrocities against Dalits in the year 2016, and a definite decline in the percentage of convictions," they told.
