Gopi Sunder’s Justice for Sreejith anthem goes viral!
For the last couple of weeks, Malayali netizens, the youth in particular, have come out in large numbers showing tremendous support to Sreejith in his fight for justice. Though Sreejith has been been protesting outside the state secretariat for over 765 days, it managed to grab public attention only recently. Ever since then, hundreds of people including celebrities have shown their solidarity to Sreejith.
Last day, music director Gopi Sunder released a song that he composed for Sreejith’s cause. Titled as ‘Justice for Sreejith’, this near-two minute song has some powerful lyrics penned by BK Harinarayanan. Gopi Sundar, Sithara, Abhaya Hiranmayi and Mohammed Maqbool Mansoor have lent their voices to this moving track. It is now trending virally across social medias. Many have appreciated Gopi Sunder for being a socially responsible artist and stand with Sreejith in his fight for justice.
Through his Facebook page, Gopi Sunder has said that it is his only way to react as a musician. He has also informed that the entire income earned from this song will be given to Sreejith. Earlier, actors like Prithviraj, Nivin Pauly, Parvthay, Indrajith, Geetu Mohandas, Sanal Kumar Sasidharan and Roopesh Peethambaran, to name a few, posted notes in their Facebook pages seeking justice for the youngster.
Sreejith has been fighting a lone battle against the State all this while. His brother Sreejeev was arrested by the Parassala police in May 2014 on allegations of theft. Days after the arrest, he died at a private hospital. While the police claimed that Sreejeev had consumed poison, Sreejith alleges that the police murdered his brother. The Chief Minsiter has promised to look into the issue and has ordered an investigation.
