DELHI, Sep 11 (Agencies): Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has sent a legal notice to historian Ramchandra Guha for linking Gauri Lankesh's murder to BJP and RSS.

Guha had said that even if the BJP or the RSS were not directly involved in the journalist's killing, the ruling dispensation had enabled a climate of hate and suspicion making it possible.

He had added that 'freelancers' who actually commit these acts were emboldened by politicians and ideologues.

Guha had further written, in an article in a leading Daily, that the political climate at present was more poisonous than at any time since the Emergency.
