The President of the NMC, (Pb& Chd chapter), Surinder Verma said that the killing of journalist Gauri Lankesh has raised alarms about the state of Freedom of Expression in the country. She had been dedicated to the cause of upholding the democratic values of the country. This murder is an assault on democracy. Ideological differences should lead to debate not physical violence. Ideas are bulletproof and thoughts cannot be suppressed through murders. The instance demands greater assertion of freedom of expression by everyone. The best way to react to this incident is by asserting our fundamental right to speech and liberty.
 Adding to it, Jaswant Rana, President, Press Club, Chandigarh said that she had been exposing politicians and superstitions. Many more journalists should take up the cause Gauri Lankesh was fighting for and they would find ample support from us.
