Arundhati Roy returns national award

New Delhi, Nov 5 : Noted activist and author Arundhati Roy on Thursday said she was returning her 1989 National Award for Best Screenplay to protest against "ideological viciousness" in the country.

"I am very pleased to have found (from somewhere way back in my past) a National Award that I can return, because it allows me to be a part of a political movement initiated by writers, filmmakers and academics in this country who have risen up against a kind of ideological viciousness and an assault on our collective IQ that will tear us apart and bury us very deep if we do not stand up to it now," Roy said in an article published in The Indian Express.
