Bengaluru: Journalist and activist Gauri Lankesh was gunned down by miscreants on September 5, 2017 outside her residence here allegedly for her stringent views against Hindutva.

Now, Burnaby, a Canadian city will commemorate her death anniversary every year as Gauri Lankesh Day as a respect for her relentless strive against human rights violations, reports PTI.

Gauri’s sister Kavitha informs she has received a proclamation from the office of the Burnaby Mayor, Mike Hurley regarding the decision. The proclamation adds, “Gauri Lankesh was a courageous Indian journalist who stood up for truth and justice… Burnaby celebrates the diversity of the community and recognises the contribution that Indo-Canadians have made to the social, economic and cultural development of the city.”
