New Delhi, Nov 15 (ANI): Politicos reacted on Sunday after Noted Dalit litterateur Devanooru Mahadeva joined writers and activists, who have returned their awards to register their protest against intolerance in India. Mahadeva announced that he will be returning his Padma Shri and Sahitya Akademi award in protest against those who have been indulging in violence in the name of religion. Over 40 writers and artistes and 10 filmmakers have returned top awards to lodge their protest against what they call the threat to diversity and freedom of speech. The campaign began after the mob killing of a Muslim man in Uttar Pradesh's Dadri over rumours that he had eaten beef.
