Congress expresses grief over Pune IT professional's killing
Thursday June 5, 2014 0:38 AM, IANS

The Congress Wednesday expressed condolences at the murder of a young IT professional in Pune by alleged activists of a right-wing fringe group over remarks made on Facebook.

Congress spokesperson Shashi Tharoor told reporters that the party expressed its "deep condolences to the family and loved ones of 24-year-old Mohsin Sadiq".

Sadiq was beaten to death in Pune by seven men alleged belonging to an outfit that called Hindu Rashtra Sena because of apparently derogatory comments about late Shiv Sena chief Bal Thackeray.

Tharoor added that the death of Sadiq was a "very serious indictment of some of the extreme beliefs that have been allowed to take hold in the imaginations of certain people".

"The answer to an opinion is another opinion, the answer to a word is another word, not violence," he said.
