Thiruvananthapuram: Miffed after hearing the news that an FIR was lodged in Bihar's Muzaffarpur district against celebrities, including himself, for writing an open letter to Prime Minister Narendra Modi voicing concern over the growing incidents of mob lynching, ace film personality Adoor Gopalakrishnan has expressed huge dissatisfaction.

Speaking to reporters soon after hearing the news, Adoor, as he is popularly known, said strange things are happening in our country. "In our country, we have heard about people including a lady shooting at the model of Gandhiji to commemorate Nathuram Godse's shooting Gandhiji and no court has registered any case in that.

And that person is now a Member of Parliament," he said. "Will any court admit such a petition based on writing a letter which was meant to express ones fears about the happenings in the country?

And, if the news is true that a court has admitted it, then one will have to really suspect the legal system," he added. Those who had signed the letter to Modi in July included Bollywood actress Konkana Sen, director Mani Ratnam, Aparna Sen, Shyam Benegal, Ramchandra Guha and 45 others.

Ojha said that nearly 50 signatories to the letter were named as accused in his petition in which they allegedly "tarnished the image of the country and undermined the impressive performance of the Prime Minister", besides "supporting secessionist tendencies".
